Our Curator of Emigration, Liam Corry, will lead a tour which delves into how Native American history is fully enmeshed in the stories of the Ulster migrants featured at the Ulster American Folk Park.

Every American house featured at the museum stood on land used by Native Americans. This history had been marginalised and is often left untold.

The Fulton house, at Ulster American Folk Park, was located close to the site of a massacre of peaceful Native Americans by Ulster men.

Focusing on five of our Ulster migrant family stories, the tour will explore relationships, from first contact to forced movement to reservations.

You will hear about the agency and determination of Native American people who strove for and continue to strive for their rights.
