The seed of Brothertown was watered 246 years ago today (March 13, 1773) when our ancestors gathered in Mohegan to discuss removal to new lands. They longed for a place where they could escape Colonial encroachment, pressures, and racism and could live their lives together in peace; a place where their descendants would be free to enjoy their sovereignty and the bonds of Native kinship. Thank you, Ancestors, for your thoughtfulness and bravery in providing for us. May we treat our descendants with the same planning and concern.
Join the Council meeting in person or online via Zoom this Saturday at 10am CT to continue what your ancestors began. See your Tribal family, witness what it means to be a sovereign nation, and hear what the Tribe plans to do in the days and years ahead. If you’re not already registered to attend, contact Councilman Elsen.
