Waking the Ancestors: Recovering the Lost Sacred Sounds of Colonial America
National Museum of American History
Washington, DC
Share this event:

The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History invites you to the premiere of a documentary theater program created by Plimoth Plantation, a Smithsonian Affiliate.

The arrival of Mayflower on the shores of North America in 1620 forever transformed the lives of those living on the continent. Explore the intersection of two religious musical traditions; hymns and psalms from the Church of England and Calvinist congregations, and the sacred song and dance of the Wampanoag, the indigenous people of Cape Cod, the Islands and southern Massachusetts.

Waking the Ancestors is performed by Plimoth Plantations Wampanoag and Colonial living history educators.
