Weetumuw Katnuhtôhtâkamuq:
The Weetumuw School

 

Our mission at Weetumuw Katnuhtôhtâkamuq is to prepare students ages 3-10 for academic excellence and community leadership by instilling traditional Wampanoag values through Wôpanâak language immersion and culture-based education for decolonization using a Montessori pedagogy. Weetumuw Katnuhtôhtâkamuq students are immersed in Wampanoag language and culture in a safe, healthy, and loving environment, with the goal of fostering academic excellence, leadership skills, and a strong sense of personal, community, and cultural pride.

The Wôpanâak Language Reclamation Project (WLRP) offers two educational programs through the Weetumuw School:

 

Mukayuhsak Weekuw: 'The Children's House' 

This is our primary classroom of students, Pre-K and Kindergarten. Within Mukayuhsak Weekuw we have our Ahtuhqeesak (Little Deer) and our Mashqeesak (Little Bears). This programs offers a full day language immersion preschool open to children.

 

Wushkeenune8ak Weekuw: 'Young People's House' 

This is our lower elementary, Grades 1 through 3, and our upper elementary, Grade 4 school.  Within Wushkeenune8ak Weekuw, we have our Tumôhqak (Beavers).

 

These programs are offered to enrolled members or household members (tribal or non-tribal) of any of the four Wampanoag tribal communities served by the project:  Mashpee, Aquinnah, Assonet & Herring Pond. See the registration link below.
