    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Most evidence indicates that the Wampanoag Algonquin enjoyed benefit from allying with Europeans, fearing encroachment from the much stronger Narragansett people to the west. It wasn't until trade "currency" broke down and increasing waves of English arrived in New England that these early agreements had no further meaning for either group.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Jenny Hale Pulsipher (historian): (on the first relations of Pilgrims and Wampanoag) It would make very good sense for the Indians to believe this is an alliance - this is a treaty among friends.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Produced by a large team of professional documentary filmmakers, academic experts as well as a number of Native American writers, directors, crew, and advisors, this five-part project is the most expensive and one of the most lengthy ever undertaken by American Experience.
