Doug Harris, Deputy Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the Narragansett Indian Tribal Historic Preservation Office speaks upon request about Indigenous Ceremonial Stone Landscapes in the Northeast.
Many stone features on Pratt Hill in Upton align with the August 13th sunset, which marks the height of the Perseid meteor shower. This is an important time of gathering and celebration for the Narragansett Tribe. In the Tribal spiritual tradition, each streak of light in the night sky during the meteor shower is the soul of a person who died during the previous year making its way to Kawtantuit’s house in the southwest.
