Presented By: Todd Morgan Kelley and Marcus Hendricks

Join storytellers Todd Morgan Kelley and Marcus Hendricks, Wampanoag and Nipmuc; for their “Tale of Two Worlds” presentation. Sixteenth century European exploration competed for the new frontier of the North American eastern seaboard for future trade, influence, settlement and power of state. By the seventeenth century those agendas had advanced. The 1606 French exploration of coastal New France (New England) followed by the 1620 Mayflower fourteen years later both nearly foundered off Chatham. The intention of these two voyages were fundamentally different yet profoundly intertwined. Prior to the Mayflower, Indigenous culture in the northeast was at its height. By the time of the Mayflower’s arrival great populations of Indigenous People were decimated by “Indian Fever.” Join us for this timely presentation about The Tale of Two Worlds: European Collision into the Nature of Cape Cod!
