This thesis is a study of indigenous communities in Southern New England during the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries. The whaling industry serves as the setting to discuss and analyze how Native people adapted, redefined, and resisted the changes happening to their culture and communities and the geopolitical relationships they developed with both African and Anglo-Americans.
