Pequot Museum at Foxwoods – Native American Heritage Month Honoring Mother Earth

In 1990 President George H. W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November 1990 “National American Indian Heritage Month.” Similar proclamations, under variants on the name (including “Native American Heritage Month” and “National American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month”) have been issued each year since 1994.  This month, we continue to honor those who were native to this land.

Last Friday the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation hosted a kick-off event themed, “Honoring Mother Earth. The event at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center included an art display, environmental poems written by Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Members, social dances, flute player, crafts, vendors, photo opportunities and much more.

Mashetucket Pequot Museum, Foxwoods

An exhibit at the Pequot Museum now until November 18th, “Our” Story: 400 Years of Wampanoag History,” is an educational and cultural exhibit about the history and traditions of the Wampanoag Tribe, and revisits events that have been historical footnotes until now despite the significant impact they had on colonization. The exhibit was created to bring to light key legacies of America’s earliest beginnings from the Wampanoag perspective, a perspective that has largely been left out of the narrative of this iconic moment in American history.
