On Our Own Ground: Pequot Community Papers, 1813-1850

The Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center and the Native Northeast Research Collaborative invite you to explore people, places, and events in 19th Century Eastern and Mashantucket Pequot community records.

The Digital Humanities grant product includes digital images, transcriptions, annotations, interactive biographies, geographies, and commentary generated and organized by NNRC editors with the assistance of community scholars from the Eastern and Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nations and Native editorial assistants from the Mohegan and Mashantucket Nations. These materials are part of an important but often overlooked collection that provides insight into the daily life of these two communities. The records are freely-accessible on the NNRC’s digital platform, the Native Northeast Portal.

The On Our Own Ground Collection was funded through the generosity of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
