This chapter details events from 1675 to 1750. These include the start of Plymouth's policing of its southern coast by late June 1675 to capture “any Indeans that may be found passing over” Narragansett Bay or headed to the outlying glacial islands; King Philip's War and its connections to the sea; the imprisonment and enslavement of Native Americans at the hands of the English; how whaling shaped coastal Natives' postwar world; the role of colonists in the near extinction of whales; and efforts to bring Christianity to the Natives led by Native ministers, the most famous being the Mohegan Samson Occom.
