As a North American of European ancestry, Victoria Freeman sought to answer the following question: how did I come to inherit a society that has dispossessed and oppressed the Indigenous peoples of this continent? After seven years of research into her own family’s involvement in the colonization of North America, she uncovered a story that begins in England, in 1588, and concludes in Ontario, in the 1920s.
Who is an Indian? is possibly the oldest question facing Indigenous peoples across the Americas, and one with significant implications for decisions relating to resource distribution, conflicts over who gets to live where and for how long, and clashing principles of governance and law. For centuries, the dominant views on this issue have been strongly shaped by ideas of both race and place. But just as important, who is permitted to ask, and answer this question?

Native Peoples of Southern New England, 1650-1775 by Kathleen J Bragdon, Professor of Anthropology at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, offers a new volume about the various Nations of the New England region during the American colonial period.

The Common Pot: The Recovery of Native Space in the Northeast is a recent historical study by Abenaki History professor Lisa Brooks in the University of Minnesota Press series, Indigenous Americas. The book offers a unique view of the early writings of Samson Occom, Joseph Brant, Hendrick Aupaumut, and William Apess. Instead of using the standard literary and historical view of these men as persons struggling to walk in two worlds, this examination view the works of these leaders as ways they used to extend their arguments for reclaiming Indigenous lands and rights.

Newspaper journalist's account of the Mashantucket Pequots and the development of their Foxwoods Resort and Casino in 1992. The Mashantucket Pequots have had a long and proud history, enduring for centuries even after colonists and historians believed them to have been exterminated by the British in 1637. By the early 1970s, however, the legacy of their generations rested on the shoulders of a single elderly woman, upon whose death the Pequots' reservation would fall into government hands.
