This epilogue considers the ways in which ideas about religion and conversion play out in present-day Native communities in southern New England. By looking at the present-day Indian churches at Shinnecock, Narragansett, Mohegan, and Mashantucket, this epilogue concludes that the legacy of the Awakening and education is tangible, but the religious practices and affiliations of Natives are as diverse as ever.
