Pequot Culture and History

As a complement to our Mohegan-Pequot language information, we would like to share our collection of indexed links about the Pequot people and various aspects of their society. The emphasis of these pages is on American Indians as a living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Pequot history is interesting and important, but the Pequots are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern authors as well as traditional folklore, contemporary artwork as well as museum pieces, and the issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
