This season, Heritage will also feature another new outdoor installation: a full-scale
reproduction of a wetu, a traditional dwelling used by the Wampanoag tribe through
the late 1600s. The wetu will be made by members of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe,
following centuries-old construction methods. Construction of the wetu begins on

Wampanoag Tribe from interpretive signage.
