Imagine it is 16th century Connecticut and you are among the Mashantucket Pequot people. You are a child of about 10 helping your family harvest the "three sisters'' (corn, beans and squash). Your dad is off hunting and your mother is preparing the harvest. At the Charter Oak International Academy, students are immersed in the life, culture and art of the Mashantucket Pequot people. This program promotes understanding and relevance to our local indigenous history. Aligned with our state and district standards, this program enhances our curriculum to give students a first-hand experience and a critical perspective.
