CHARLESTOWN – 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.
“The crows smoked...that is why they turned black” explained Harris to a captivated audience of children and their parents. “The 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)”.
