The pre-colonial and colonial history of New England is rarely told with the balance that comes from inclusion of the Native perspective. Ms. Peters, a Mashpee Wampanoag, explores the primary resources of the period through an indigenous lens providing a fresh, unique analysis of the period. This lecture compliments the exhibit, “Our” Story: 400 Years of Wampanoag History, on display at New England Historic Genealogical Society, April 3 – April 25, 2018.
