Guided History Walk:
From the Praying Indians of the Lower Cape to King Philip’s War of 1675
About this walk:
Co-sponsored by Harwich Conservation Trust and Wellfleet Conservation Trust, join Todd Kelley and Marcus Hendricks for a guided walk offering a unique perspective of the difficult social times for the First People of the Lower Cape before and at the time of King Philip’s War of 1675. We will venture down Cape and consider the pressures from encroaching colonial boundaries at this time period. Look through the lens of local native people and how they had to make life altering decisions about family and community in a rapidly changing world. Compare the common ground peril of social displacement for communities and the relative short term safety by remaining insulated as the Praying Indians of the Lower Cape up until the death of Parson Samuel Treat and the Great Snow of 1717.
