Mr. Monagan's American Identity Students Visit Mashantucket Pequot Museum

On September 19, the eighth grade traveled to the Mashantucket Pequot Museum to learn more about one of the nations that are indigenous to the Connecticut area. The eighth grade began their study of American Identity this year by investigating the cultures of some of our land's first inhabitants. In addition to viewing replica Pequot villages, boats and art, students watched a short film on the Pequot War and were able to discuss the clashing of cultures that occurred when Europeans landed in North America and imposed their culture on the people that were here.
