A day of Global Climate Strike begins in Aquinnah

Under the auspices of the Aquinnah Cultural Center (that's a community institution through which the Wampanoag Tribe interfaces with the white residents of their lands) we marked the morning of the international cry against enveloping climate disaster at Martha Vineyard Island's western tip.

Pipe music set the mood ...

... as a somber crowd gathered in the glorious morning light.

After a young man shared his hopes and fears, an elder offered a benediction for the day:

"Go in peace. But always go in purpose."
