CHARLESTOWN â€“ On Sept. 21, Ninigret Park hosted the annual Harvest Festival to raise money for the Community Garden, which grows fresh food for people in need.
The festival was very family-oriented, providing activities for children and adults alike.
One speaker, Thawn Harris, told stories from Native American tradition with a modern twist.
â€śThe crows smoked...that is why they turned blackâ€ť explained Harris to a captivated audience of children and their parents. â€śThe other birds and the Surgeon General told them not to smoke. They don't smoke anymore...when they try to make songs like the other birds, (they cough)â€ť.
