Pokanokets and Pilgrims: Conflict and Compromise in the 17th Century
Osamequin, the Massasoit of the Pokanoket Tribe, met with Pilgrim Governor Carver on March 22, 1621 and struck a treaty of mutual protection. A period of more than fifty years of peaceful relations between them followed and only ended with the King Philip’s War in 1675. Join us for a presentation about the differences between these two cultures and their struggle to maintain a mutually beneficial relationship. In this 90-minute presentation, Dr. David Weed, Coordinator of the Sowams Heritage Area Project, will give an overview of the transition from Native to colonial domination of the land and talk about how the Project is helping to illuminate the 17th century history of eight communities from Providence to Bristol.
