Quinnetukut: Our Homeland, Our Story
Our story is one of community, of connections to Mother Earth and to one another. It is also the story of an enduring presence. The land now called Connecticut we have always known as Quinnetukut, the place of the long water. Our homelands have been here, along river banks, in forested uplands, and beside coastal marshes for thousands of years. We are always 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 new permanent exhibit follows the 10,000 year story 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.
