Beloved Cousins and Protectors: Native Women Leaders before and during King Philip’s War

October 18, 2018 @ 6:30 pm EDT

Pilgrim Hall Museum
75 Court Street
Plymouth, MA 2360 United States

Dr. Lisa Brooks considers Native women’s leadership in a lecture based on her new book, Our Beloved Kin. Brooks describes the contest of war, captivity, and Native resistance during the “First Indian War” (King Philip’s War) through the intertwined stories of Weetamoo, a female Wampanoag leader, and Nipmuc scholar James Printer. Drawing on archival research, landscape analysis, and tribal histories, Brooks’ pathbreaking scholarship offers new insights into colonial New England and the origins of America.
