Baxter Lecture — The True Cost of Colonization: American History from an Indigenous Perspective
Boston Public Library President David Leonard welcomes scholar and a politically, socially, and culturally active member of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Paula Peters to discuss the romanticized myth of the Pilgrims' arrival and the true cost of colonization from the perspective of the indigenous people.

By exploring the history of contact prior to 1620 we can begin to understand the decisions that were made upon their arrival off the coast of Cape Cod and the transition from the village of Patuxet to the Plimoth colony.

This talk is sponsored by the Baxter Fund and is part of the Repairing America Initiative at the Boston Public Library, a pledge to focus its 2021 programming and services on bridging the gaps that divide America. By prioritizing economic recovery, civic engagement, COVID-19 recovery, racial equity, workforce development, and youth engagement, the BPL is working to help Americans rise above the challenges they face.
