Facing “The End”

Facing “The End”

Termination and Survivance among the Montaukett of Eastern Long Island, New York

(p.215) 11 Facing “The End”
The Archaeology of Race in the Northeast

University Press of Florida

The Montauketts of eastern Long Island, New York, lived and worked with white settlers since they arrived in the seventeenth century. Over time, however, they suffered isolation, restrictions on hunting rights, limitations on social and marital practices, and loss of land. This chapter discusses the experiences under settler colonialism and the strategies for survivance that characterize Montaukett history. This is accomplished by outlining patterns of racialization that are visible in recorded conflicts, and identifying social networks and settlement patterns that were formed possibly in response to the challenges of institutional racism.

Keywords:   Montaukett, Native American, Long Island, New York, racialization, landscape, networks
