I was taken copleatly surprise,to expereance the culture of the Mashantucket Pequot American tribes. In the CT. And the North Eastern tribes.how they made canoes from whole trees. How they protected their land.and their family's. And how they cultivated,thier land and grow many crops.they really put a great Museum together. With so real statues. Well worth the price of admission.
