“The Narragansett People have seen many changes in their lands; however, their traditional culture has been passed down from generation to generation and is even stronger today. Narragansett Indian men and women have fought with honor in every war starting with the United States revolution. Tribal members have careers in every profession including; doctors, lawyers, teachers, artists, as well as fisherman, lobsterman, cooks, and masons.
The Tribe has greatly expanded its administrative capability. Policies and procedures have been implemented to protect and preserve its land, water and cultural resources and promote the welfare of Tribal members. The education, family circle, traditional ceremonies, and Narragansett language are important aspects of the Narragansett Indian Tribe’s culture and daily lives. Tribal monthly meetings and other special, traditional gatherings take place at the Four Winds Community Center, on Route 2 in Charlestown, RI.”
