Essays and speeches by Brothertown and Stockbridge leaders.

Essays and speeches by Brothertown and Stockbridge Indians.


The link below leads to several short documents by and about the emigration of the Stockbridge, Munsee and Brothertown Indians to Wisconsin in the 1820's. The first is a sketch of the history of the Brothertown (sometimes found as Brotherton) by tribal member Thomas Commuck. This is followed by memoirs and speeches by Stockbridge Indians Levi Konkapot and John W. Quinney. These latter are introduced by white missionary Cutting Marsh (who concluded, after nearly two decades advocating for Indian rights in Wisconsin, "I am ashamed of my country").
