Nikkomo is an annual Narragansett celebration started by the Nipmuc that is also celebrated by some Southern New England tribes. The gathering involves gift giving signifying the days when those who had the most gave to those who had the least so that the entire community was cared for equally. 

Join the Josephine White Eagle Cultural Center in collaboration with CMASS and the Native American Student Association in our celebration. All are welcome.

This community-union involves gift giving so this year, we are inviting our community to donate items for the Student Care Supply Closets.
