About Waban

Waban Webquish is an indigenous professional who provides education on the history and traditions of his cultural heritage through guided walks and seminars as well as creates and distributes handmade Wampum jewelry, traditional indigenous items, and culturally sustainable foods. 
Waban accepts bookings for private walks around Cape Cod and Southeastern MA. In Spring 2023 he will be doing educational kayak tours for those who are interested. He is available for lectures at colleges and universities. Waban also participates in many farmer’s markets on the Cape and islands and in Southeastern MA. Please reach out through email if you are interested in booking.
In the Spring of 2020, Waban began working on the Turtle Wetu Project in collaboration with the Yarmouth Historical Society. This is an ongoing project that will include a series of walks discussing indigenous history from the local area, as well as festivals celebrating local indigenous culture. You can find more information on this through the Old Yarmouth Historical Society website.  Following traditional indigenous teachings, nothing goes to waste. When fishing for Quahogs, the leftover shells are used to make jewelry and the meat is cooked to produce Cape Cod's best-tasting Stuffed Quahogs. There is a long history and extensive culture behind the well-known Wampanoag Shells and Waban is happy to share this culture with the world.

Fishing using live bait, a method our tribe has done for thousands of years.

“Culture and Heritage will alwayskeep balance in one's life.”

Sharing Our Traditions

Let's get back to our roots by working with nature as we have for thousands of years, through sustainable methods and practices. You've never felt this close to home.

  • 1


    We fish for Quahogs using a simple rake and bucket. Young quahogs are tossed back, adults are chosen for size and quality.

  • 2


    The quahog meat is used for stuffers, pie, and other recipes. You won't find any other better tasting or fresher quahog on the Cape.

  • 3


    A true artist with over a decade of experience, Waban uses the shells of the quahogs to create original and authentic jewelry.
