Indians

At the time of the landing of the Mayflower, Ousamequin (Yellow Feather), the powerful Native leader of the Pokanoket people, and Great Sachem or Massasoit of the Wampanoag Confederacy, lived in the area now known as Warren, Rhode Island. Despite his own vigor and equanimity, he ruled over a people who had been devistated by diseases brought by European fishermen. The relationships that early explorers to this region had with the Natives were mostly contentious, with both sides frequently initiating combat and taking captives as slaves. In fact, there were many hostile exchanges with the Natives before the the Mayflower voyagers even reached Plymouth. Massasoit forged political and personal ties with William Bradofrd and other colonial leaders which resulted in a peace treaty on March 22, 1621.

More information on the Treaty can be found at Duane A. Cline's page: The Wampanoag/Pilgrim Treaty. This alliance was significant since two outbreaks of smallpox brought by the English had devastated the Wampanoag during the previous five years. While Bradford and Massasoit created a peace that lasted a generation, their children could not sustain it. However, this treaty insured that the Wampanoag did not join the Pequot War in 1636 which resulted in the near total annihilation of the Pequot people.

Numerous conflicts between the colonists and various Indian tribes culminated on 20 July 1636 with the killing of a respected trader named John Oldham while on a trading voyage to Block Island. John Mason was put in charge of a militia raised in Hartford and he set out with Mohegan warriors. On 26 May 1637 Mason's group attacked the Pequot village at Misistuck and killed perhaps 700 Indians, mostly women and children, by turning the village into a "fiery oven." Those Pequot who survived the massacre at Mystic were distributed as slaves to the Mohegan, Narragansett and the Metoac. Others were enslaved and shipped to the West Indies or were forced to become household servants in Puritan households in Connecticut and Massachusetts Bay colonies. The Pequot War ended with the first Treaty of Hartford, signed on September 21, 1638.

In 1675 a fairly long period of peace came to an end with King Phillip's War. Metacom (or Pometecomet, or Metacomet) was the second son of Massasoit who was known as "Philip." When Massasoit's first son, Wamsutta, died in 1662, Metacom succeeded him. Metacom believed that Wamsutta had been treacherously murdered at the hands of the English; this was one of the leading factors that eventually lead to King Philip's War, the bloodiest war in American history that lasted eleven years. On 20 June 1675, some Pokanoket set two Enghish homes on fire and killed some cattle in Swansea, Massachusetts. 3 Thus began the war that would end with the virtual removal of all Indians from New England.
