Visit the Pequot Museum and Prepare to be Transformed.We are transforming how indigenous cultures and peoples are represented. For our website we purposefully juxtaposed black and white imagery against their contemporary counterpart in color. Quahogs are transformed into modern wampum jewlery (artist James Jones, Mashantucket Pequot.) Corn is transformed into sublime cuisine (our own Chef Sherry Pocknett, Mashpee Wampanoag.) The historic image of a warrior is transformed into into a modern powwow dancer (artist Morningstar Figueroa, Mashantucket Pequot.) These artists represent a next generation Native narrative that gives greater understanding to the evolution of a new Native voice. We will be featuring rotating artists on our webpage to convey the beauty and diversity of their art, so come back to see who will be featured next. Please visit the museum to see how your views, ideas and opinions of Native culture and peoples will be transformed.
