The Great Awakening has long been recognized by historians as an important moment in time for Indian communities in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and on Long Island, New York. This chapter examines the experience of the Awakening in individual communities while placing the “Indian Great Awakening” within the Great Awakening as a whole. This chapter also interprets Indian participation within a longer trajectory of Indians making religious and cultural decisions to meet their own needs.
