Fall Inter-Tribal Gathering
Sunday, October 22, 2023, 1-4 pm
Slater Mill, 67 Roosevelt Ave. Pawtucket, RI
Join this inter-tribal gathering hosted by the Narragansett Indian Tribe and the Hassanamisco Band of Nipmuc. We will have drumming, dancing, and speakers focused on the importance of bringing migratory fish like herring back to the Kittacuck-Blackstone River.
Migratory fish have been blocked from spawning in this river since the 1700s, but its time to change that. Herring was important to local Indigenous Culture and Heritage. Today herring play a vital role in the aquatic human food chain and Rhode Island’s $400M fishing industry.
Advocates are working to build fish passage to restore herring back to their original habitat, but we need your SUPPORT.
LET’S COME TOGETHER AND BE THE VOICE FOR CHANGE
PLEASE ATTEND ON OCTOBER 22

We have many river and watershed programs and educational opportunities. In the past, we have helped individuals meet their court-ordered community service requirements as well as helped students complete their 15 hours of community service to help satisfy their graduation requirements. Students and individuals have fun while completing their requirements and they learn about the river and the environment at the same time. We hope the positive experience stays with them.
Contact us at BRWCFOB@gmail.com or complete our Project Registration form. Volunteers are always appreciated. Many hands make light work.
