Beyond the Mayflower: New Voices from Early America, 1500-1676

A two-week summer institute for 25 K-12 teachers on the evolution of indigenous-colonial relationships in seventeenth-century New England.

Beyond the Mayflower: New Voices from 17th-Century America is a two-week Summer Institute serving twenty-five K–12 educators. It will be held at Plimoth Plantation July 27–August 9, 2020. In 1620, Mayflower entered a Wampanoag homeland comprising almost seventy communities. The establishment of an English colony set in motion events that irrevocably changed a network of indigenous communities, each with its own traditions, challenges, and aspirations. This historical case study explores how indigenous-colonial relationships evolved through collaboration, conflict, and collapse. These legacies endure. Teachers will engage a diverse set of primary sources whose reinterpretation is rapidly changing the teaching of 17th-century American history—archaeological evidence, cartography, material culture, oral history, and written documents. Scholars and cultural leaders will guide educators as they incorporate new voices and ideas about community, leadership, and civics into their classrooms.
