A concise history of the Montaukett tribe of Long Island, bringing an important period of American Indian history vividly to life.

Reviews
"Written by . . . noted authority on the Indians of Long Island, The Montaukett Indians of Eastern Long Island is the true story of one of the first Native American tribes to contact and establish relations with the English in the seventeenth century. Covering the first meeting and clash of cultures in the 1600’s down to the modern day. [The book] is a concise history that covers issues of cultural assimilation, political problems, social tensions, and recurring patterns of economic dependency among the Montaukett. A handful of black-and-white photographs and illustrations add a visual touch to this valuable contribution to Native American studies shelves, focusing on an oft overlooked tribe that has nonetheless played a crucial role in American history."
Library Bookwatch

"Perhaps no one is better qualified to write a history of the Montaukett Indians than John A. Strong. For nearly twenty years, his writings on the Algonquin people of Long Island have filled an important void in our understanding of the Northeastern Woodlands."
dashAmerican Indian Culture and Research Journal

"A major strength of this volume is John Strong’s extensive use of original documents to underpin his contemporary view of a highly complex story. For a more accurate history of the island, this darker side needs to be known."
dash The Long Island Historical Journal

Description
Although the Montaukett were among the first tribes to establish relations with the English in the seventeenth century, very little has been written about the evolution of their interaction with the settlers. John A. Strong, a noted authority on the Indians of Long Island, has written a concise history that focuses on issues of land tenure in the relations between the English and the Montaukett. Strong also explores cultural assimilation, political and social tensions, and patterns of economic dependency among the Montaukett.
