The Nettukkusqk Singers present The Lost Lives of Native American Women and Two Spirit People – Honoring Our Culture and Our Heritage
Thursday, March 10, 2022 at 6 p.m.
Experience the power and the music by the intertribal group of southern New England women performing traditional and contemporary songs accompanied by hand drums, rattles and water drum. In the Natick dialect of Algonquin, “Nettukkusqk” means “my sister.” Formed by Wampanoag and Nipmuc women from Rhode Island and Massachusetts in 1994 at Deer Island Memorial, Boston, the Nettukkusqk Singers seek to reclaim women’s drumming and singing traditions from their tribal communities. The performance will be in English and several dialects of southern New England Algonquin. This event is dedicated to all missing and murdered indigenous women and Two Spirit People.
