Join Kristen Wyman of the Natick Nipmuc Tribe and Elizabeth Solomon of the Massachusett Tribe at Ponkapoag for a conversation about the development of praying towns in 17th-century New England and how missionary work influenced national Indian policy and continues to perpetuate a myth of Indian extinction today.
