A Traditional Wampanoag Dwelling: The Wampanoag have lived in what is now southeastern Massachusetts—including the land that is now known as Cape Cod—for more than 12,000 years. They were the first tribe encountered by the Pilgrims when they landed in Patuxet (what is now Plymouth) in 1620. This outdoor exhibition features a reproduction of a wetu, a Wampanoag seasonal house used during the warmer months and usually built near the coast where summer resources are abundant. It is constructed of cedar saplings and covered with either bark or cattail reeds, all readily available materials.
