New England tribal members paddle on mishoon's maiden voyage

Twelve New England tribal members representing six Native American tribes paddled from the Mystic Seaport Museum to Noank in a 36-foot mishoon on Saturday, August 8. The mishoon was commissioned in the spring by the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and constructed under the guidance and skill of Wampanoag canoe makers. The six participating tribes were the Mashantucket Pequots, the Narragansetts, the Schaghticokes, the Passamaquoddy, and Aquinnah and Mashpee Wampanoags and the Shinnecocks from Long Island.
