Info

Presenter: Katherine Hermes, Ph.D. Professor of History, Central Connecticut State University. Location: Torrington Historical Society Carriage House. When English settlers came to Connecticut in 1635, they did so at the invitation of the Wangunk sachem, Sowheag, and his son, Sequasson. Conflict soon followed with the Pequot War in 1637. Most conflicts, however, did not result in war and were the stuff of everyday encounters. The Wangunk, Tunxis and other Native people used their own law and the English courts to argue for justice, and sometimes they received it. This program will discuss Native jurispractice and demands for justice in colonial courts, 1637-1775.
