The public is invited to a program to acknowledge Indigenous Peoples' Day on October 14. Join us to pay tribute to the people who first occupied the land in the Hartford area. The Noah Webster House and the Connecticut Human Rights Partnership are proud to present  "Native Identity - A Historic Perspective" which will be hosted by First Church, West Hartford and with support from CT Humanities.

Facilitated by members of the Akomawt Educational Initiative, attendees will be challenged to consider the dehumanizing nature of non-Native control of Native identity and the cultural impact of past indentured servitude on Native communities.

The program begins with a presentation reviewing the Treaty of Hartford in 1638 where Pequot captives were divided among the English settlers and the Mohegan and Narragansett tribes and moving through current events in the Greater Hartford area and in the state. A panel discussion and Q&A will follow with endawnis Spears and Christopher Newell of the The Akomawt Educational Initiative, and Tall Oak a Wampanoag/Pequot Tribal Elder. These experts are ideal candidates for deepening our understanding of Native history and current day struggles and successes.

Registration is required and seating is limited.
