Activity 2: The "Mashpee Revolt"

Read aloud or share key points from the Mass Moments essay that describes the Mashpees’ efforts to gain self-government. Have students read the petition and make a list of the Mashpees’ grievances and demands; then answer the questions at the end of the document.

Mass Moments is a project of Mass Humanities, whose mission is to support programs that use history, literature, philosophy, and the other humanities disciplines to enhance and improve civic life throughout the Commonwealth.
