Plimoth Patuxet

In March 1649, Ousamequin (Massasoit) and representatives of the colonists of Duxbury concluded a deed for the purchase of a tract of land that would eventually be incorporated as the town of Bridgewater, Massachusetts. In exchange for the land, the colonists provided what seems, from a 21st-century perspective, a mere handful of household goods, including coats, hatchets, hoes, knives and textiles. But what did this agreement really mean? How were the goods perceived by the two parties – and how did their perspectives on land ownership and use inform their understanding of the agreement? Meet our public humanities fellows, Corey Walker and Remy Willocks! Throughout the year, they have researched the Indigenous and colonial collaboration and conflict that took place in 17th-century Plimoth & Patuxet. Join them as they share their insights including thoughts on this famous land agreement.
