When the Mayflower left Europe, its passengers sought to find a place in 
the world that they could be free to practice their religion as they saw 
fit, to escape the overreach of the crown and the materialism of that 
surrounded them. Sadly when they arrived they sought to impose the same 
overreach and intolerance on the Native people they were trying to 
escape. After 400 years the mentality of colonization, the 
commodification of the natural world, and Native people is still causing 
great harm to the ability of the earth to sustain human life.

• Hartman Deetz is an artist/ educator who is an enrolled member of the 
Mashpee Wampanoag tribe. Deetz has been involved in activism advocating 
for Native rights and environmental preservation for the majority of his 
life, traveling nationally and abroad to learn from and advocate for 
issues affecting Native people.
