Friday, November 14, 2014 - 9:00am to Sunday, March 15, 2015 - 5:00pm

On November 14 “Captured: 1614”, Plymouth 400’s first educational exhibit under the "Our Story-- A Wampanoag History" project, was unveiled at Plymouth Public Library in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This exhibit tells the story of the kidnapping of twenty Native men from Patuxet (the later site of Plymouth village), one of whom was Squanto. The exhibit, produced by the Indian Spiritual and Cultural Training Council and SmokeSygnals Marketing and Communications, brings to light a piece of history that had a monumental effect on the Wampanoag tribe, their relationship with the Pilgrims, and the founding of Plymouth Colony. Captured: 1614 will be expanded each year leading up to 2020 with more pieces of Wampanoag history, and will travel to other public libraries and museums throughout the region.
