NOT ALWAYS STOCKED This title is not always in stock: allow additional time for special order to arrive. Although the Montaukett were among the first peoples 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.
