US will mark the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower's voyage with an $11M replica -

• by Emily Crane

The United States is preparing to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower's historic voyage from the U.K. to Massachusetts in 1620 

The Pilgrims' landing at Plymouth, Massachusetts and the interactions between the British and Native American significantly shaped the building of America 

For the 400th anniversary commemorations, Native Americans - particularly the Wampanoag tribe - have played a huge role in shaping the events being held

The 400th commemorations have been years in the making with a replica Mayfair ship undergoing million dollar restorations in anticipation for the events

There are seven main events being held from April through to November that range from a replica voyage and an ancestral walk to honor the Native tribes
