The huge Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center was our first stop. An impressive tour through the millenia and centuries - from the Ice age in New England, caribou hunting 11000 years ago, a recreated Pequot village and their life in Connecticut 450 years ago, the Pequot war against the English in 1637 and their defeat as a powerful reading tribe, up to today’s life of this tribal nation.
