Narragansett Indian Tribe Native Arts Fest

November 30, 2012


NARRAGANSETT—Handmade crafts, storytelling and lessons in eco-friendly living made Saturday’s Narragansett Indian Tribe Native Arts Festival at the Towers a hands-on celebration of Native American Heritage Month.

Leftover Thanksgiving turkey might bring to mind stories of the native Americans who taught the earliest European settlers how to live off the land in order to survive. But for some Narragansett tribal members, making the most of natural resources isn’t a relic of history—it’s a part of daily life.

November 13, 2012

SOUTH KINGSTOWN-It appears the challenges newly elected local politicians face in the coming years include working harmoniously together for the benefit of South Kingstown, and of course, the budget.

Echoing his campaign theme for general assembly, Spencer Dickinson said he wants to focus on changing the ‘business as usual’ feel within Rhode Island’s statehouse.

“We are not at the point where we can solve problems. We have to change the way we do things first,” said Rep. Dickinson, who was re-elected on Tuesday.
