A collection of 15 essays examines the lives of important but relatively unknown Native Americans. Each study draws on research in local records, oral traditions, and new models of cultural interaction. The chapters explore the complexities of Indian-colonial relations from the seventeenth to early nineteenth centuries from Maine to the Ohio Valley. These works are directed on the attention of Skickellamy, an Oneida diplomat, The Mohawk sachehm Theyanoguin; Aswashunkes, a Saconett sunksquaw; or Molly Ockett, a Pigwacket doctor.Some essays provide fascinating details of Indian-white relations. Others exhibit the strengths of new paradigms for expanding understanding of Native American Responses.
