Team Common is in holiday recovery mode today. So instead of our regular show, we’re bringing you this great story from the WBUR newsroom.

At the start of Native American Heritage Month this November, Indigenous people of various nations gathered on the banks of the Mystic River in Charlestown.

The Massachusett tribe at Ponkapoag, in collaboration with the Nipmuc and others came to build community, strengthen tribal bonds and learn an ancient skill. WBUR’s Cristela Guerra spoke with some of the teachers and students involved.
