Types of Charters
New Hampshire- Royal Charter
Massachusetts- Royal Charter
Conneticut- Charter
Rhode Island- Charter
New England didn’t have very fertile land- this resulted in not a lot of farming
Native Americans showed many settlers how to grow crops
Indian corn, pumpkin, squash, and beans
Settlers also fished for things like:
Cods, halibut, and whales (whales supplied oil)
The forests were full of riches--Wild animals like turkey and deer were often found.
Because New England was so close to the Appalachian Mountains, there was a natural large supply of fish, lumber, and fur

Relations with Native Americans - Massachusetts
Relations with Native Americans-
New Hampshire
Native American relations were not that violent in New Hampshire
The New Hampshire Colony tried to stay close to the Atlantic so that they could keep in consistent contact with England
Although relations weren't violent, they did interact. The two traded very often
Example, trading metal for survival skills
Even though relations were peaceful, the English were worried and built defenses for safety
Relations with Native Americans-
Rhode Island
Roger Williams kept Native American relations very good
He respected the Natives and even won over the trust of one of the most powerful native tribes-- the Narragansett
The two were so close that Williams even convinced the tribe to form an alliance and attack the Pequots
But this peace did not last very long and the natives started to smell war
The War

By 1607, there were already about 45,000 settlers and they kept taking Native American land
One of the largest conflicts was in 1675 ---King Philip's War (aka Metacom's Rebellion)
Tribes included: Wampanoag, Pequot, Narraganset,
Metacom and his people attacked English villages in New England.
The natives destroyed 12 English Village and killed about 600 English settlers.
The war ended in August 1676, after Metacom was captured and beheaded.

The Puritans believed that the Natives were inferior to them
But many believed that the natives could be converted to Christians
The natives thought that the Puritans conversion actions were violent and unkind
Accepting Christianity usually meant giving up their language and abandoning their homes.

Relations with Native Americans - Connecticut
The Indian tribe, the Pequots had bad relations with the Connecticut settlers
Although Connecticut's military played a crucial role in the war, Connecticut didn't suffer a lot during King Philip's War
Connecticut played a large role in the New England Confereration
