Nikkomot is an annual winter gathering celebrated by some southern New England tribes. It originates from a traditional Narragansett give-away celebration.

The JWECC has traditionally celebrated Nikkomo by bringing together students, staff, faculty,and their families, and sharing food.. Food has been a central part of this event. This year giving away to others will be celebrated as well by encouraging participants to bring toiletries to stock a supply closet.
