Indigenous Peoples Day Celebration!

Join fellow Newtonians for the first ever Indigenous Peoples Day Newton Celebration!
We live on the homelands of the Massachusett Tribe. Today, Massachusett people live throughout the state, country and world.

Indigenous Peoples Day is a great chance to learn more about the Massachusett and their history in the place we call Newton! A family-friendly, socially-distant scavenger hunt encourages kids and adults to learn some of the Indigenous place names in Newton and to dig into the history of our region.

The Indigenous Peoples Day Newton celebration was created in collaboration with the Massachusett Tribe at Ponakapog and Historic Newton. Visit the Facebook page Indigenous Peoples Day Newton or click on this Google Doc to learn how to participate!
