The True Cost of Colonization: American History from an Indigenous Perspective
Paula Peters is a scholar and a politically, socially, and culturally active member of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe. She’ll discuss the romanticized myth of the Pilgrims’ arrival and the true cost of colonization from the perspective of the indigenous people.
By exploring the history of contact prior to 1620 we can begin to understand the decisions that were made upon their arrival off the coast of Cape Cod and the transition from the village of Patuxet to the Plimoth colony.
