Abstract:

This book provides the first comprehensive, region-wide, long-term, and accessible study of Native Americans in New England.

This work is a comprehensive and region-wide synthesis of the history of the indigenous peoples of the northeastern corner of what is now the United States—New England—which includes the states of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.

Native Americans of New England takes view of the history of indigenous peoples of the region, reconstructing this past from the earliest available archeological evidence to the present. It examines how historic processes shaped and reshaped the lives of Native peoples, and uses case studies, historic sketches, and biographies to tell these stories. While this volume is aware of the impact that colonization, ethnic cleansing, dispossession, and racism had on the lives of indigenous peoples in New England, it also focuses on Native American resistance, adaptation, and survival under often harsh and unfavorable circumstances.

Native Americans of New England is structured into six chapters that examine the continuous presence of indigenous peoples in the region. The book emphasizes Native Americans' efforts to preserve the integrity and viability of their dynamic and self-directed societies and cultures in New England.


  • Brings New England's Native American past to life through case studies, anecdotes, stories, and biographies
  • Emphasizes the continued Native American presence in the region
  • Includes various resources such as a chronology, community information, Internet resources, and a bibliography
