The Montaukett Indians of Eastern Long Island
By

Rating
Although the Montaukett were among the first tribes to establish relations with the English in the seventeenth century, until now 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 the issues of land tenure in the relations between the English and the Montaukett. Strong also explores issues of cultural assimilation, political and social tensions, and patterns of economic dependency among the Montaukett.

Reviews

"Perhaps no one is better qualified to write a history of the Montaukett Indians than John A. Strong. For nearly twenty years, his writings on the Algonquin people of Long Island have filled an important void in our understanding of the Northeastern Woodlands." - American Indian Culture and Research Journal "A major strength of this volume is John Strong's extensive use of original documents to underpin his contemporary view of a highly complex story. For a more accurate history of the island, this darker side needs to be known." - Gaynell Stone, Suffolk County Archeological Association"
