    Archaeological Discoveries at Block Island and Nipsachuck
    October is CT Archaeology Awareness Month. Visit the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center for a two hour experience.  First, archaeologist Kevin McBride will discuss his latest discoveries in Rhode Island, specifically on Block Island and at the Second Battle of Nipsachuck Site, a King Philip’s War Period (1675-6) battlefield in North Smithfield.  Next, participants will get a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum’s archeology laboratory and view artifacts recovered from McBride’s investigations.  Following the tour, participants are encouraged to explore the museum at their leisure.  This event is recommended for those 13 and older, and is free with museum admission. Contact Ashley Bissonnette at ABissonnette@pequotmuseum.org to reserve a space.

    Honoring the Veterans Powwow
    Not only have Natives served in every branch of the U.S. military for over the past 200 years, the value of selflessly defending one’s nation is one of the most highly-regarded Native traditions. Just as Honor, Courage and Commitment is fundamental to the character of every warfighter, those very same values are treasured in Native culture, for thousands of years to the present day. We invite all members of the military, both Veteran and active duty and their families to join us in honoring and thanking this Country’s greatest heroes at our 2015 Veterans Powwow.
