John Wompas, Indian Slavery, Native land sales, Atlantic maritime trade, Native Education, Massachusetts
Data Set Description Summary
In the course of writing my book on John Wompas, Swindler Sachem: The Nipmuc Indian Who Sold His Birthright, Dropped out of Harvard, and Conned the King of England (Yale University Press, 2018), I gathered a great deal of information on such subjects as Indian slavery, Native land sales, the Atlantic maritime trade, and Native education in Massachusetts. This information contributed to the book by providing historical context for Wompas’s life, but most nitty-gritty details were tangential to the book’s purpose so do not appear in it. Because those details could help other scholars working on more narrowly focused books or articles, I have placed them here where they can be accessible to anyone who has the URL.
