First People of the Province Lands
Guided Walk about Native American History
Sponsored by Harwich Conservation Trust and Provincetown Conservation Trust, join Todd Kelley and Wampanoag/Nipmuc Marcus Hendricks as they team up for this walk about the First People of the Province Lands. The focus will be on the woodland period (1000 B.C.) to the time of European first contact. Try to imagine the natural richness of the area followed by the rapid and dramatic social changes that early settlement brought, along with the changes in the land itself, as our story culminates with the arrival of the Old Colony Railroad (1873) opening up land access to Provincetown. Over the last three years Todd and Marcus have developed and presented through the Harwich Conservation Trust, many walks about Native life on Cape Cod prior to European contact up to early settlement and the establishment of “old Cape” families.
