This event, offered free of charge, explores the impacts of Settler Colonialism, the devastation and the resilience of the Wampanoag people, in the aftermath of King Philip's War.

King Philip's War, 1675-1676, remains little known in the telling of American history, compared to the roster of subsequent conflicts usually recounted in America's development. Nevertheless, this war and its aftermath not only heavily impacted and changed the lives of Indigenous people, but created the space for the establishment of this country, and therefore is foundational in American history.

The history following King Philip's War is one of continued devastation for Wampanoag People: the taking of the land, reservations, removal, slavery, indentured servitude, erasure. Using primary sources, Linda Coombs discusses the impacts of colonization in the many forms that it manifests. It is also the history of the resiliency and strength of spirit that carried people through these times.

Linda Coombs has worked for over 45 years as an educator at museums including the Boston Children's Museum and Plimouth Patuxet (formerly Plimoth Plantation). She is the author of a new book for young adults titled "Colonization and the Wampanoag Story."

The program, the third in the new "2024 Educational Series," is sponsored by L.I.N.K. (Linking Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Knowledge) in collaboration with UU Falmouth (Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Falmouth). Held monthly, the free series covers a range of topics chosen in consultation with Elders and teachers in the Mashpee and Aquinnah Tribes. L.I.N.K's mission is to raise awareness among Cape Cod residents of the culture and contributions of the "First People," the Wampanoags, and the painful history they have endured.

More information is available at L.I.N.K.'s website, linkcapecod.org, and at UU Falmouth's website, uuffm.org or uufalmouth.org.
