The AP reported today that Narragansett Indian Norman Gonsalves was stabbed early Sunday morning at the Mashpee Wampanoag powwow.

The mother of the 18-year old Gonsalves, Bella Noka, said her son was trying to break up a fight at the powwow. The Providence Journal reported Gonsalves to be in stable condition at a Cape Cod Hospital.

Mrs. Noka told the Providence Journal that her son has a "punctured liver and diaphragm, and a collapsed lung after being attacked from behind while trying to protect a woman."
