Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the post-Revolutionary experiences of New England Native communities that did not migrate to Brothertown. It also looks at the ways in which the process of evangelization started all over again, for in the postwar years the Society for Propagating the Gospel among the Indians and Others in North America sent missionaries to several of these communities, most notably the Narragansetts. This chapter also demonstrates the ways in which Brothertown was just one of many minor migrations and movements in these postwar years. Nonetheless, Native communities still leaned upon traditional modes of living to survive and stand strong.
