Walk Series to Explore Native Legacy on Lower Cape

HARWICH – Participants can explore what life was like for a native Monomoyick in the 1600’s with a series of events celebrating native contributions this month.

The land trusts of Harwich, Chatham, and Orleans are sponsoring three guided walks through Monomoyick Native American territory on the Lower Cape that has been preserved as conservation areas.

The walks will be led by 12th generation Cape Codder Todd Kelly and Marcus Hendricks, a native Wampanoag.

The first event is planned for Saturday, September 8 from 10 to noon. Participants will walk the barrier beach at Ragged Neck and learn about Samuel de Champlain’s arrival at Stage Harbor in 1606.

Walkers will learn about Squanto and Bradford’s meeting at Monomoit Bay in 1622 on September 15 from 10 to noon. Participants will explore the East Harwich site where the two parties negotiated for corn.

The final walk is set for September 22 in South Orleans. Participants will walk the trail at Paw Wah Point and will learn about the Nauset Purchase of 1643.

The cost for the series is $45. It is a flat fee covering one walk or all three.

Preregistration is required. Those interested can learn more at the Harwich Conservation Trust’s website.
