Neighborhood Matters: Native Boston
Native Boston will feature the screening of an excerpt of “Mashpee Nine: The Beat Goes On” a film held in the Archives and Special Collections at Northeastern. This film tells the story of injustice, outrage, activism, and vindication that emboldened cultural pride and integrity for the Wampanoag, a rural Native American community in Mashpee, Massachusetts nearly 40 years ago.
The short screening will be followed by a conversation with J. Cedric Woods, Director of the Institute for New England Native American Studies, UMass Boston facilitated by CAMD Architecture professor Nicholas Brown, creator of the web-based project A People’s Guide to Firsting and Lasting in Boston. Lunch from Roxbury’s Haley House will be served.
