Honoring Indigenous Veterans
The Honoring Indigenous Veterans of Turtle Island Committee includes Indigenous veterans, educators, artists, advocates and allies who are committed to ensuring Indigenous Veterans are honored. The project furthers Tomaquag Museum’s mission to educate the public and promote thoughtful dialogue regarding Indigenous history, culture, arts, and Mother Earth. Tomaquag's Indigenous Empowerment Network (IEN), established in 2016, strives to eradicate poverty in the Indigenous Community of Rhode Island through education, cultural competency, job training, employment, small business incubation, addressing social justice and building equity through Tomaquag Museum and our ever expanding network of partners.
We are excited to present new updates about the Honoring Indigenous Veterans monument!
Kutaputush, Thank you to all who have supported the t-shirt sales, raffle sales, donated and sponsored so far! We have reached our original goal of $50,000! We are hoping to raise an additional $15,000 to add four benches to the monument.
