Lisa Brooks presents a New History of King Philip’s War at the Carpenter Museum in Rehoboth, MA

Lisa Brooks, Ph.D., Associate Professor of English and American Studies at Amherst College gave a talk on her recently published book, Our Beloved Kin: A New History of King Philip’s War at the Carpenter Museum in Rehoboth, MA. The book recovers a complex picture of war, captivity, and Native resistance during the “First Indian War” (later named King Philip’s War) by relaying the stories of Weetamoo, a female Wampanoag leader, and James Printer, a Nipmuc scholar, whose stories converge in the captivity of Mary Rowlandson. Dr. Brooks described the geography of the King Philip War including the locations of indigenous “bowls” and the home of Weetamoo on a map of Sowams.
