I read about this cemetery after my first trip to Block Island and decided to look for it on my second trip. I had never been to an “Indian” cemetery before and was curious to see one. This graveyard was used by the Manisee tribe who originally inhabited the island. Upon the introduction of white settlers, it was also used to inter slaves. The natives’ graves are simply marked with rocks, although there are a few more recent headstones to be found as well.
