Indigenous Peoples' Day Meeting with Documentary Screening


Come for a screening of the Emmy Award winning documentary, Mystic Voices: The Story of the Pequot War. Then stay for the monthly meeting of the Indigenous Peoples' Day Committee.

"What led the first declared war in America? Why is the slaughter seldom talked about? In May 1637, English Puritan colonists torch a Pequot Indian village at Missituck (Mystic), Connecticut, massacring 400-700 men, women and children in less than an hour.

Pequots are forbidden to use their tribal name and are subjugated to other Native Tribes allied with the English. With the help of sympathetic English leaders, they eventually are able to re-establish their own communities, which become the first Indian reservations in America."
