Please join Chef and author Angela Marcellino at Highfield Hall as she presents her new cookbook: The True Natives of Cape Cod Massachusetts and their Food Ways. Enjoy a food tasting, author talk and book signing.


About The True Natives of Cape Cod Massachusetts and their Food Ways:

Angela Marcellino presents stories of her ancestors of the Portuguese Diaspora and Seychelles Islands, driven by the whaling industry to the shores of New Bedford and Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The recipes are used as a metaphor to examine the author’s own cultural and ethnic identity and personal journey. The recipes tell the story of America starting from when the People of the First Light first walked the land, now known as Cape Cod, to when the English settlers arrived.


About the Angela Marcellino:

Centered in Mashpee, one of the last and largest declared Indian districts of Massachusetts, incorporated into a town in 1870, Angela also shares stories of her legacy as a member of the Peters family and their ties to the Kennedy family. Her grandfather represented the Indian town for over thirty-seven years, and the family has deep commitment to the survival of this unique community.

She is a member of the present-day Mashpee Wampanoag federally recognized tribe who still live on their ancestral lands, where they walk, speak their language, and continue to celebrate their culture. Angela has strong ties to her Mashpee tribal community and her Indigenous culture. She has worked as a program administrator for over twenty years for federally recognized Tribes and Native American nonprofit organizations. She has served on several boards and commissions, including eight years on the Mashpee Wampanoag Economic Development Corporation Commission as well as the Mashpee Wampanoag Museum Committee and Mashpee Wampanoag Housing Commission. Angela has had the privilege of cooking and serving traditional meals for her friends in her community.
