Program for Sunday, November 21, 2021
The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum recently replaced its traditional—and traditionally biased—display commemorating the Mayflower’s arrival with a groundbreaking new and permanent exhibit. Our Story: The Complicated Relationship of the Indigenous Wampanoag and the Mayflower Pilgrims was built in partnership with SmokeSygnals, a leading Native American creative agency. K. David Weidner will talk about the Museum’s intentions in commissioning noted Wampanoag historians to tell the history of the Indigenous people on Cape Cod, up to and including the arrival of Mayflower. Yes, the new exhibit is interactive, modern, technological, but—for the Museum’s trustees—most importantly, it is honest and accurate.
