The We Shall Remain series, produced by American Experience in association with Native American Public Telecommunications for WGBH Boston, will premiere on PBS April 13, 2009. Episode 1, "After the Mayflower" focuses on the relationships between Wampanoag people and English colonists during the first years of contact. In support of the series, WGBH has produced an Event Kit for Libraries containing many great ideas for related library and school programming, including Guidelines for Evaluating Media About Native Peoples. These guidelines were adapted from the Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center’s Evaluative Criteria for Books about Native Americans (2006), and the American Indian Library Association publication “I” Is For Inclusion: The Portrayal of Native Americans in Books for Young People (2007).
We are the Information Resources Department of the Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center. Consisting of a Research Library, Children's Library and Archives & Special Collections, our holdings of over 50,000 titles contain current and historical works on the histories and cultures of North American indigenous peoples, with a special focus on the Northeast.
