Wampanoag Quahog Day Imparts Lessons To Tribal Youth

The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s natural resources department will host the 5th annual Quahog Day for tribal youth and their families on Wednesday, April 23, from 10 AM to 4 PM at Okway Bay.


Tribal youth will learn about the tradition of shellfishing, including proper harvesting, care for the environment, and traditional uses of shellfish by the Wampanoag people. Held during school vacation week, the day offers young tribal members the chance to dig for quahogs, learn how to prepare them for eating, and then join other tribal members at a family cookout lunch on the powwow grounds at the new tribal community and government center.

Lunch will be served by Sherry Pocknett.

Participants will meet on the tribal grounds at 483 Great Neck Road South at 10 AM. All are advised to bring fishing boots, baskets, rakes, extra clothing to change into, and any other fishing gear they would like to use.

Adult volunteers are needed and parents are encouraged to attend with their children to help supervise.
