King Philip’s War Reconsidered
Sponsored by: Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History
King Philip’s War is known as one of the most devastating conflicts between Native Americans and European settlers in 17th-century America. Two brand new books by scholars Lisa Brooks – Our Beloved Kin: A New History of King Philip’s War, and Christine DeLucia – Memory Lands: King Philip’s War and the Place of Violence in the Northeast, provide dramatically different perspectives on the conflict and its enduring legacies. The authors will present their perspectives in a discussion moderated by Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel, Medicine Woman and Tribal Historian of the Mohegan Tribe.
Sponsored by the Yale Native American Cultural Center, the Yale Group for the Study of Native America, the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration, the Yale University Department of Anthropology, and the Yale Peabody Museum.
Reception to follow at the Yale Native American Cultural Center, 26 High Street, New Haven.
