Starting this week, visitors to Plimoth Plantation will be able to tour the Mayflower II, a newly-restored recreation of the original ship that carried 102 Pilgrims to the shores of Plymouth nearly 400 years ago.

To celebrate the project’s long-awaited completion, Richard Pickering and Kate Sheehan from Plimoth Plantation called in to Boston Public Radio on Wednesday. They spoke about how the organization is working to better raise awareness of the settlers' impact on the Patuxet Wampanoag tribe.

Richard Pickering is deputy director at Plimoth Plantation, and Kate Sheehan is the museum’s associate director of marketing.
