Part 1 - The Dartmouth Mayflower Project

Followed by......

Part 2 - Dr Stephanie Pratt - Mayflower and the English views of Indigenous North Americans in the Early 17th Century

What views did the Mayflower Separatists hold towards the Indigenous Peoples of North America? Did these views change once they had actual interactions with local Native peoples of New England, such as the Wampanoag and others, and as the colonies grew in numbers?  Visual and written accounts of the interactions between colonists and Native peoples will be addressed in the talk given by Dr Stephanie Pratt, a Dakota (Sioux) and Anglo-American scholar living in Devon for over 30 years.

Dr Pratt is a Dakota and Anglo-American Historian/Scholar. She was formerly an Associate Professor (Reader) of Art History at Plymouth University and now an Independent scholar and freelance consultant.

Dr Pratt is the first Cultural Ambassador for her Tribal Council (at the Crow Creek Dakota (Sioux) Reservation in South Dakota, USA). Dr Pratt was recently consultant and cultural advisor to the British Library; the National Maritime Museum; The Box in Plymouth; Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery in Exeter, among others.

This is an online streamed event and all tickets are £10.00 per person.

The event link will be available to view for 24-hrs from the start time.

Joining instructions will follow closer to the event.
