PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A new exhibition at the Rhode Island State Archives chronicles the history of the region’s indigenous peoples.

The exhibit runs through December in the state archives office in downtown Providence.

Items on display include photographs, several deeds between colonists and tribes in the Narragansett Bay area, petitions from tribal members concerning disposition of their lands, and acts and resolutions of the Rhode Island General Assembly affecting Native American rights.

The exhibit is called “First Nations who helped form Rhode Island” and is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 337 Westminster St., in Providence.
