Learning about Nunnowa

Southampton Elementary School prekindergarten students learned about the tradition of Nunnowa during a special presentation by Southampton High School students from the Shinnecock Nation and their families.

The high school students read “Keepunumuk: Weeachumun's Thanksgiving Story” by Danielle Greendeer and spoke about Nunnowa, their harvest celebration. They also played drums, sang and taught students a circle dance.

The event was arranged by pre-K teacher aide Kim Cause, and special guests included Charles Cause, Justin Maddox, Jaycee Newcomb, Shilo Newcomb, Kateri Robinson and Noomie Willams.
