First of all, it’s not a costume. It’s regalia, and there’s a big difference. Arawak Nation descendant Claudia A. Fox Tree, entered the World of Wellesley Martin Luther King Day, Jr., Breakfast beating a drum. She wore Arawak regalia and spoke her Nation’s language as the crowd of 75 at MassBay Community College listened. When she finished, Fox Tree explained the difference between her actions and those of someone dressed up for Halloween.

“A costume is something someone puts on when they are trying to be someone or something else,” the keynote speaker said. Wearing regalia, a traditional style of indigenous peoples’ attire, has cultural and/or religious significance to the wearer. The point is that when an indigenous person wears regalia, that person is choosing to identify with his or her own culture.
From there the public school special education teacher delivered a talk designed to expand the audience’s ideas about Native Americans. Fox Tree laid on the line Christopher Columbus’ intentions when in 1492 he made first contact with Fox Tree’s tribe and other Native populations on the various Caribbean islands on which he landed. His confidence in his ability to conquer, and his intent to do so, came through in his journal. On his third night
Wellesley Fire Chief Rick DeLorie reports a hazmat situation at MassBay Community College in Wellesley on Tuesday morning has been resolved. Some classes were nixed while the situation was being addressed by safety teams.
On Friday, a lab person placed several chemicals in a container and — eureka! — over the weekend they reacted in such a way that the container became distorted.
Upon receiving the call, Deputy Chief Charles DiGiandomenico took charge and determined the need for a State hazmat team to evaluate. Upon the hazmat techs’ arrival it was determined that due to the significant distortion of the small container that its removal or depressurizing would be best handled by the State Police Bomb Squad. That team assisted with reducing the pressure and removing the container from the building; there was never an explosion concern.
“This was clearly an accidental incident,” DeLorie says. The lab re-opened and classes on that floor were held.
World of Wellesley will screen a community film viewing of Dawnland on October 23, 2018 at MassBay Community College from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm in the auditorium.
For most of the 20th century, government agents systematically forced Native American children from their homes and placed them with white families. As recently as the 1970’s, one in four Native children nationwide were living in non-Native foster care, adoptive homes, or boarding schools. Many children experienced devastating emotional and physical harm by adults who mistreated them and tried to erase their cultural identity.
In Dawnland, they share their stories.

Mary Shelley’s original Frankenstein, the classic gothic horror story of a scientist who creates a grotesque creature, has received some creative treatment of its own in a new edition of the novel. This iteration of the medical-overreach cautionary tale is the pick of the Wellesley Free Library and Mass Bay Community College for their 2018 Community read.
The new version, titled Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus : Annotated for Scientists, Engineers, and Creators of all Kinds, gives Mary Shelley author credit and is edited by David H. Guston, Ed Finn, and Jason Scott Roberpairs. In it, the original 1818 version is paired with annotations and essays exploring the social and ethical aspects of scientific creativity raised by this remarkable story.
The result is a unique and accessible edition of one of the most thought-provoking and influential novels ever written. Two hundred years after it was first published, scholars are using Shelley’s timeless tale to engage the public around issues in science, technology, and creative responsibility. Read this new edition over the summer and watch for fall program announcements, including a presentation by editor David Guston.
