Alien Abductions, Slavery, Cape Cod and Plymouth Plantation 1602-1621
Thursday, May 13
Alien Abductions, Slavery, Cape Cod and Plymouth Plantation 1602-1621  (General Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
A video conference meeting using Zoom. Registration required.
Roger W. Howland will present Alien Abduction, Slavery, Cape Cod and Plymouth Plantation 1602-1621. In this talk, the speaker takes the perspective of the Native Americans who met the Mayflower in November of 1620. Covers the history of Tisquantum (Squanto), his kidnapping in 1614 by Capt. Thomas Hunt, as well as the abductions of a Nauset sagamore and Wampanoag natives. I also review Tisquantum's eventual return to Patuxet with Capt. Dermer, his working for the Newfoundland Company and eventual encounter with the Plymouth Colony. I also cover the original colony set up on Martha's Vineyard in 1602 by Bartholomew Gosnard and subsequent Nauset attacks on various ships with the eventual battle engaged in between the Pilgrims and Nausets at First Encounter Beach.
