About this walk:
Tisquantum and Bradford at Monomoit Bay 1622

Saturday, September 14th, East Harwich
10:00am – 12:00pm
(rain date: Sunday, Sept. 15th)

Join 12th generation Cape Codder Todd Kelley and native Nipmuc/Wampanoag Marcus Hendricks for a fascinating walk in East Harwich within old Monomoyick Territory. Consider the lives of the First People and how dramatically their lives and the land itself were influenced and altered during this brief window of time in the seventeenth century. Explore the land once known as Captain Jeethro’s farm and visit the feasting site overlook that Squanto and Bradford likely visited when they came into Pleasant Bay to negotiate for corn in 1622. Learn how this area was the seat of the greater Monomoyick Homeland and how it held onto this ancient legacy up through the last unbroken blood-line of Hosey Stephen (d. 1800) and her husband Micah Rafe (d. 1816).
