Mashpee Nine and Virtual Q&A

Mashpee Nine is the story of injustice, activism, and vindication that emboldened cultural pride and integrity for the Mashpee Wampanoag in 1976. The story documents the raid and brutal arrest of nine men participating in a traditional drumming ceremony on the Mashpee Pond campsite.

The events took place in the context of the dramatic growth of a small Native American town on Cape Cod. The subsequent trial became a celebrated cause for cultural justice within the community.

This film is being presented as part of Southampton’s Mayflower 400 programme to mark the
 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower and in partnership with the University of
 Southampton's Human Worlds Festival. The film's director, Paula Peters, will also join the meeting afterwards for a Q&A.

This is an online event. Ticket holders will be emailed a link to access the film and conversation which follows.
