I am, however, an enrolled member of the tribe. I created this website, for everyone, as a way to stay in contact with each other and order my home-made DVD videos if interested.

 These are home-made DVDs containing video and photography of the Narragansett Indian Tribe Annual Meeting (Powwow) and other tribal gatherings and events.

 Question: "What is the Narragansett Indian Tribe Annual August Meeting?"

 Answer: The Annual August Meeting is our yearly gathering of the tribe, friends and families. This also our celebration of the green corn thanksgiving. (One of many thanksgivings celebrated by our tribe.) This takes place every August on the Narragansett Indian Church tribal grounds in Charlestown, RI and is one of the oldest known tribal gatherings on the very same land since immemorial times. To learn more about our tribe, click here.

These videos were recorded, edited and produced by me. I am a member of the tribe. I originally produced these videos for my family to have, as a way to preserve the memories of our gatherings. Although there are some of our families and friends who live far away and may not be able to appear at our meetings. These DVDs feature video of most of the ceremonies from Grand Entry to Competition Dances. (It is customary at most traditional gatherings that some ceremonies are not allowed to be video taped or photographed. These sacred traditions are not on the DVDs.) Also, many of the DVDs contain slide-shows of photo's from the event. This is great nostalgia for those who were there and those who could not be there.

United For Justice: Narragansett Tribe, Fighting for Our Rights as a Sovereign Nation

This is a video taken on March 20th and 21st, 2009. The United For Justice campaign was formed by the Narragansett Tribe in effort to fight for our rights as a sovereign nation. A recent decision in the Carcieri vs. Salazar case held in Washington DC, ruled that 30 acres of land owned by our tribe would be taken out of the protection of Federal Trust. This would deny our rights to sovereignty on our own lands. The local governments are trying to steal back what they have stolen from us before! This DVD contains a short version (shown below) and a full length version which includes mostly all of the protest speeches. Video portion approximately 57 minutes.
