A History of Connecticut's Golden Hill Paugussett Tribe
From triumphs to tragedies, Brilvitch vividly recounts the long lost history of southwestern Connecticut's Paugussett Nation. Like all of New England's indigenous people, Bridgeport's Paugussett tribe suffered through the familiar sorrows of displacement and forced assimilation. Despite these adversities, the Paugussett have fought to preserve their cultural identity.

This book captures the essence of the real story of the Paugussett tribe, and keeps the memory and spirit of them alive. I would give this book a five-star rating for sure! Charles Brilvitch is the best historian that ever lived!
This book show by totally objective data that the Golden Hill Paugussetts deserved their Federal recognition. There is non- ending historical data from third party sources which demonstrates a viable tribe with leadership and historical community interaction. This then brings me to question the validity of the Bureau of Indian affairs. Why was this tribe denied? Who so vehemently opposed the recognition and why were they successful in their opposition? This now opens the discussion into the area of criminality.
