Join Andre Strongbearheart Gaines, Cultural Steward of the Nipmuc Tribe, working in partnership with Thomas Green, Indigenous Artist & Educator of the Massachusett Tribe at Ponkapoag, for the first burn and launch of a traditional mishoon (canoe) in the city limits of Boston in countless generations.
