Weekly Reader - Edition 2;Nov2010, Vol. 80, Special section p2
The article discusses changes in the way of life of the Wampanoag, a Native American tribe. The Wampanoag used to live in round homes called wetus made of wooden frames and covered with grass and tree bark, but now they have homes similar to those owned by most Americans. Wampanoag artists make pottery and other crafts which they sell at powwows.
