In the above video, you’ll meet George Koumantzelis, founder of the “Pow-Wow Oak Protectors.” In it he gives a presentation about the history of the historical Pow-Wow Oak tree on Clark Road in Lowell, Massachusetts, and why it is important for the Lowell City Council to vote “YES” on two separate motions: the first – to create a “Protective Deed” for the tree; and the second – to approve the placement of a “Memorial Plaque” by the Pow-Wow Oak Protectors (at their own expense) in the public land by the tree. This tree has been a part of the community for more than 300 years, and was a gathering place for Wamesit Indians who had pow wows, peace conferences and war councils here.
Below we’ve embedded parts 2, 3 and 4, as well as provided you with the website for the Lowell, Massachusetts government’s page, which is here. Make your voice heard and help Koumantzelis save this historic tree.
