ZOOM “Pokanokets and Pilgrims: Compromise and Conflict in the 17th century” with Dave Weed – Wednesday, February 10 at 1 pm
Dr. David Weed is the Coordinator of the Sowams Heritage Area Project that is working to illuminate the 17th century history of Rhode Island. A psychologist by training, Dr. Weed began investigating the reburial behind his house in Warren three years ago of the Pokanoket Massasoit Ousamequin, who met the Plymouth Pilgrims in 1621. That led to the discovery of over fifty locations from the 1600s in East Bay Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts that are described on his website, SowamsHeritageArea.org, and the history of the Pokanoket people who live among us today.
