Learn about William Penn’s treaty with the indigenous people.

Chester County History Center will hold a free, virtual class William Penn's Treaties in Context on Tuesday, April 4 from 7-8 p.m. Among the major figures in colonial European-Indigenous relations, one is usually portrayed standing alone above the messy everyday business of war and land swindles. “William Penn told the Indians that he loved them all; their Men, Women & Children, and that he held Councils with them to perpetuate the Remembrance of his Affection towards them,” said a Conestoga leader named Tawenna in 1729. Tawenna’s evaluation has proved remarkably durable over the centuries, but the story is more complicated. This talk explores the broader historical contexts and motivations of Penn and Native people as they negotiated with each other in the late seventeenth century. While free, registration is required.
