The Mashantucket Pequots are a native Algonquin people in Southeastern Connecticut known for their “Pequot spirit of survival”. Their unprecedented story can be relived in vivid detail at the Tribe’s world-renowned Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center. The tenacity of the Mashantucket Pequots brought them through centuries of persecution to economic prominence today. Since opening one of the first Native American gaming halls in the country in 1986, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation (MPTN) has also developed a host of lucrative economic ventures including the Lake of Isles Golf Course and the Spa at Norwich Inn. The MPTN is one of Connecticut’s highest state tax payers and largest employers.
