About the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation

The Mashantucket Pequots are a native Algonquin people in southeastern
Connecticut who endured centuries of conflict and survival on the oldest
continuously occupied reservation in the U.S. (est. 1666). As the first
native people within the continental United States to survive attempted
genocidal massacre by European immigrants (1637), the Mashantucket
Pequots have an unprecedented story of restoration, which is exhibited
at their world-class Museum and Research Center (www.pequotmuseum.org).
