The subject of Indian gaming may evoke images of large and successful gambling casinos here in Connecticut and elsewhere in the United States and Canada. However, Native American gaming has a rich and long tradition stretching back into pre-history. Some of these games were for children, but many were for the entire family and even the whole community. Anthropologist and curator at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center, Steve Cook will tell you about these ancient traditions, showing you selected items from the research collections not currently on display. Afterwards, enjoy the Museumís exhibits detailing Native American history in New England as well as contemporary works by artists and craftspeople from all over the Americas.
