Abstract:

"The Embattled Northeast breaks with established wisdom concerning the dynamics of Indian-white relations. It shows that Euramericans' technological superiority did not undermine the Abenaki's self-confidence, but that trade pushed the tribes toward reaching an alliance among themselves as the first step in dealing with colonials. The study also tells how the Abenaki adapted to the post-contact world in order to secure their lives in religious terms, combining their own religious beliefs with compatible French Jesuit teachings"--Jacket.
