The collected writings of Samson Occom, Mohegan leadership and literature in eighteenth-century Native America by Samson Occom ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
His letters, sermons, journals, prose, petitions, and hymns - many of them never before published - document the emergence of pantribal political consciousness among the Native peoples of New England as well as Native efforts to adapt Christianity as a tool of decolonization. Presenting previously unpublished and newly recovered writings, this collection offers a fascinating look into the mind and milieu of a charismatic Indian leader and public intellectual. At the same time, the publication of his full known corpus more than doubles the amount of available Native American writing from before 1800, thus providing a vital resource for scholars and students of history and Native American cultures."--BOOK JACKET
