Our Beloved Kin

Yale University Press

This chapter unravels and questions the “ends” of King Philip’s War, inviting continuing community engaged research. It examines the “ends of war” from multiple places and perspectives, including Nashaway, Boston/Cambridge, Nipsachuck, Pocasset, and the Northern Front of Wabanaki, to present a wide view of a complex, dynamic historical space. The chapter explores a treaty process initiated with the return of Mary Rowlandson, the recruitment of Native scouts, and the diplomatic measures through which these scouts protected their kin, as well as the escalating forces of colonial containment, particularly in the colonies of Massachusetts, Plymouth, and Rhode Island. It also highlights particular environmental and political factors which influenced the impacts of containment, especially in the summer of 1676.

Keywords:   Nashaway, Cambridge, Nipsachuck, Pocasset, King Philip’s War, Treaties, Diplomacy, Scouts
