Fidelia Ann Hoscott Fielding - Notable Native Americans
Fidelia Ann Hoscott Fielding was the last-known speaker of the traditional Mohegan Pequot language. She spent her life practicing her language and cultural practices in the face of changing times and immense odds. The anthropologist Frank G. Speck worked closely with Fielding to document her language, eventually turning his work into 4 publications. This work serves as a major part of the current revitalization efforts of the Mohegan Language Project. Mrs. Fielding was inducted into the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame.
