About Marcus

Marcus Hendricks is an indigenous professional who provides education on the history and traditions of his cultural heritage as well as creates and distributes handmade Wampum jewelry, traditional indigenous items, and culturally sustainable foods.  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 Marcus is happy to share this culture with the world. In the Spring of 2020, Marcus 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. hsoy.org/coming-events-1 
Marcus accepts bookings for private walks around the Cape Cod area and participates in many farmer’s markets, including Brewster, Wellfleet, and others on the Cape and islands and in Southeastern MA. brewsterhistoricalsociety.org/farmers-market wellfleetfarmersmarket.com

“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

    Fish

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

  • 2

    Cook

    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

    Make

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