The story that really struck a chord with me was Tommy Orange’s ‘There There’. I am a distant relative of the Pequot's and know a lot of the history of this region in respect to the Wampanoags, especially King Phillip and his execution in my backyard of Bristol. I have decided to take the information from this semester and look into another controversy happening at this very moment across the border in Massachusetts, and that is the state emblem of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as well as the banning the use/representation of Native American’s as school mascots, emblems, etc.
