Dr Stephanie Pratt Talk – Mayflower and the English views of Indigenous North Americans in the early 17th century
What views did the Mayflower Separatists hold towards the Indigenous Peoples of North America? Visual and written accounts of the interactions between colonists and Native peoples will be addressed in the talk given by Dr Stephanie Pratt, a Dakota (Sioux) and Anglo-American scholar living in Devon for over 30 years.
Richard Holledge – author of Voices of The Mayflower
Richard will base his talk on the research he did when writing Voices of the Mayflower, with a particular emphasis on Dartmouth.
