38 Curtis Road, Washington, CT 06793. Phone: 860-868-0518.

In the 1620s, the Wampanoags and white settlers lived in relative peace in what is now southeastern Massachusetts. But five decades of English immigration, mistreatment, European diseases, and widespread environmental degradation brought the Indians and their way of life to the brink of disaster. After the Mayflower, the first episode of American Experience’s miniseries “We Shall Remain”, explores the polar strategies—peaceful diplomacy and warfare— the Wampanoag people employed in their struggle to maintain their cultural identity and community.   Run time: 90 minutes. Fee: Included in regular museum admission; IAIS Member Free.
