The Montaukett Indians of Eastern Long Island

Front Cover
Syracuse University Press, 2006 - History - 196 pages
1 Review
Although the Montaukett were among the first tribes to establish relations with the English in the seventeenth century, very little has been written about the evolution of their interaction with the settlers. John A. Strong, a noted authority on the Indians of Long Island, has written a concise history that focuses on issues of land tenure in the relations between the English and the Montaukett. Strong also explores cultural assimilation, political and social tensions, and patterns of economic dependency among the Montaukett.
