Drew Lopenzina: 
“400 Years of Settlement Through an Indian’s Looking-Glass”

In 1835 William Apess, a Pequot activist and minister, marked the anniversary of the Mayflower landing as a day of “mourning and not of joy.” When we reexamine colonization through the lens of indigenous culture, tradition, and memory, we are left with more than simply a tale of conquest or mere winners and losers. This presentation forwards a tale of survival for Native peoples of the Northeast–a reconsideration of historical processes and how we choose to remember that has been 400 years in the making.
