About the Nashobah Praying Indians and the Strawberry Moon Unity Powwow
Please join us on this historic occasion in friendship and community as we welcome the Nashobah Praying Indians back to their ancestral lands of Littleton-Nashobah!
The Strawberry Moon Unity Powwow is a partnership event between the Nashobah Praying Indians and the Littleton Historical Society.
This is the first Nashobah Powwow on their ancestral sacred lands in over 300 years, and the Nashobah Praying Indians invite you to join with them in Unity in the circle of dance, music, and spirit.
Littleton was originally the Praying Indian Plantation of Nashobah, and prior to 1654, was the Native village of Nashope under Chief Tahattawan, a Massachusett Federation Sagamore of the royal blood.
The Nashobah identify as Praying Indians and are proud of the term. They adopted Christianity in 1654, and against all odds and persecution, are alive and well today and are still practicing their blend of Christian faith and Native ways.
Chief Caring Hands of the Massachusett Nashobah-Natick-Ponkapoag Praying Indians invites you to join with her and the Nashobah on this historic occasion – a time of music, fun, family, culture, food, dance, crafts, community, and strawberries for all!
Be part of this historic event!
