Post film discussion with Linda Coombs.Linda has a 45 year background working in museums, including Boston Children’s Museum for 11 years, 30 years in the Wampanoag Indigenous Program at Plymouth Plantation, and 9 years at the Aquinnah Cultural Center.In her own words: “In addition to my knowledge and understanding of Wampanoag/Native history and culture, one of my main areas of focus is the appropriate representation of Wampanoag/Native people so that the stereotypes, misconceptions, distortions that occur as part of the usual, accepted telling of history can be eliminated and replaced with accurate, true information. It is critical to make audiences aware of these flaws in order to change their perceptions of Native people, and have them gain a more comprehensive understanding of Wampanoag/Native people, cultures and histories.”“There is nothing I know of that’s anything like the Wampanoag case.”— Noam Chomsky
