As part of All College Week 2013, CCRI gives back to the community during Community Service Day.
Community Service Day
390 Summit Road
Tomaquag Indian Memorial Museum was established in 1958 by Eva Butler, an anthropologist, with the guidance of the late Princess Red Wing (Narragansett/Wampanoag), and is Rhode Island's only museum entirely dedicated to telling the story of the indigenous peoples of this land. The museum has a unique collection of more than 20,000 cultural objects along with hundreds of thousands of pieces of archival materials focusing on the indigenous peoples of New England and Rhode Island. Its special programs share Native American perspectives on traditional health and well-being, education, history, technologies, culture and the Indigenous arts. Tomaquag hosts classes on beadwork, pottery, weaving, painting and more. Presentations for the public through offsite programs, lectures and cultural presentations bring culture, traditional arts and history to the public.
Community Service Day volunteers will do some spring yard work and garden preparation; help the museum prepare for a giant yard sale by organizing and tagging items; and stain ramps and benches. Volunteers with skills in technology, social media, Web design, burning DVDs, etc. also are sought to help in those areas that day.
This site is now full. Thank you.
