Brown University’s SRP launched The Namaus (All Things Fish) Project at the Narragansett Tribe’s Annual Powwow in Charlestown, R.I., August 9-10, 2015. The SRP Community Engagement Core is working with the Tribe to assess the impacts of environmental contamination on the Narragansett Tribe, and to facilitate informed decision-making regarding fish consumption and fish contamination. The exhibit included an aquarium with “fish” from Tribal Ponds to engage youth. Adults were recruited for Talking Circles.
