Linda Coombs, Aquinnah Wampanoag, historian, museum educator, artisan, author, will present “Historical Trauma” Saturday, March 16, from 1 to 3 PM, at UU Falmouth, 840 Sandwich Rd. East Falmouth. (Free of charge.) This presentation  will  cover ways that the  impacts of colonization create historical trauma.

Linda Coombs has worked for over 45 years as an educator at museums including the Boston Children’s Museum and Plimouth Patuxet (formerly Plimoth Plantation). She is an historian, artisan, and author of a new book for young adults titled “Colonization and the Wampanoag Story.”

The program, the fourth in the new “2024 Educational Series,” is sponsored by L.I.N.K. (Linking Indigenous & Non-Indigenous Knowledge) in collaboration with UU Falmouth (Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Falmouth). Held monthly, the free series covers a range of topics chosen in consultation with Elders and teachers in the Mashpee and Aquinnah Tribes. L.I.N.K.’s mission is to raise awareness among Cape Cod residents of the culture and contributions of the “FirstPeople,” the Wampanoags, and the painful history they have endured.
