We are continually adapting to new ideas, new technologies and a changing environment yet our traditions and communities continue. We are still here. We are the Indigenous Peoples of Connecticut.

This exhibit follows the 10,000 plus year long history of Connecticut�s Native American Peoples to their lives and culture today. Discover their stories of survival, ingenuity and spiritual connections to Mother Earth as well as their technological and artistic accomplishments.
