The first Deaf settlers in America, came here on the Mayflower, seeking a new life in America, a land of opportunities where discrimination are nonexistence, at least at the time. The Indians were set out to annilate the Pilgrams, but notice one Deaf among them using gestures, who were able to facililate communication, saving our scalps. It was this Deaf individual that chiseled "1620" into a rock at  Plymouth, the rest is history.
