A study of the 17th-century Narragansett Indians, whose languages and lifeways were described by Roger Williams in A Key Into the Language of America (1643), long considered an objective, thorough and authoritative account. By weaving textual and archaeological evidence with community memory, Patricia Rubertone challenges the canonical status of A Key, imagining a more complicated and dynamic history of Native cultural survival and persistence in New England.
