About Us


The Wampanoag Nation Singers and Dancers was founded in 1985 by a group of individuals dedicated to spreading Eastern social songs and dances of the Wampanoag Nation to the public.  The Singers & Dancers are represented by the communities of Aquinnah, Mashpee, & Herring Pond.  Accompanied by hand-crafted rattles and a water drum, each dance is fully narrated. The singers strongly encourage audience participation and prefer to dance with the people, not for the people.


Educating by the sharing of our cultural of traditional dancing and songs with use of rattles and water drums. “We are the People of the First Light”
