Remind Me
Reenactment of the Wampanoags' arrival on Nope (Martha's Vineyard). Learn about Moshup, the tribe's legendary father, and their creation stories remembered since the beginning of time. Starts at sunset. This is a beautiful performance that celebrates the Tribe's oral traditions. The pageant is staged on a natural amphitheater in front of the on-site Wetu. Pageant participants weave through the crowd; lit by torches, dressed in full regalia, traditional singing and exhibition dancing around open fires is only part of the allure. Bring a sweatshirt, blanket or lawn chair and bug spray!
