About the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation
The Mashantucket Pequots are a native Algonquin people, located in southeastern Connecticut, who endured centuries of conflict, survival, and continuity on and around one of North America’s oldest Indian reservations (Est. 1666). In 1637, the Pequots became the first native people to survive a genocidal massacre at the hands of European colonists, in what would become the continental United States. Pequot history is an unprecedented story of redemption and restoration, which today, is showcased at the Tribe’s world-class Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center (www.pequotmuseum.org). Today, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation owns and operates one of the largest and most successful resort casinos in North America—Foxwoods Resort Casino (www.foxwoods.com)—along with a variety of other enterprises, including the Lake of Isles Golf Course (www.lakeofisles.com); Pequot Pharmaceutical Network (www.prxn.com), and the Spa at Norwich Inn (www.thespaatnorwichinn.com). All together, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation remains one of the State of Connecticut’s highest tax payers and largest employers, and has contributed more than $3 billion to Connecticut through a first-of-its-kind, tribal gaming revenue-sharing agreement, enacted in 1993. Likewise, the Tribe provides generous support to organizations that support its neighboring communities. For more information, visit www.mashantucket.com.
