Dear Friends,

We, the Board of Directors of the Nolumbeka Project, Inc., are pleased to announce that we are now the caretakers of the forty-one acre Wissatinnewag property in Greenfield, MA. The Friends of Wissatinnewag blended into the Nolumbeka Project and the deed to the property was transferred from the Friends of Wissatinnewag, Inc. to the Nolumbeka Project, Inc.  We are eager to move forward on several short and long term projects and welcome your support.

The Nolumbeka Project, Inc. is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, incorporated in 2009, dedicated to the preservation of the history of Native Americans/American Indians of New England through educational programs, art, history, music, heritage seed preservation and cultural events. We are actively building, maintaining and expanding an historical archive research library for use by the Tribes and Educators of the Northeast. This project has received funding from Credit Data Services, Inc. at Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts.
