Excerpt from A Bibliography of the English Colonial Treaties With the American Indians: Including a Synopsis of Each Treaty

During the long period in which Great Britain and France struggled for the supremacy on the North American continent the affairs and friendship of the Indians were of the greatest importance. This was especially true of the Iroquois and the Western In dians. In New England the settlers early became the masters except of the eastern tribes of Abenakis and their kindred. The French working through their missionaries persuaded part of the Abenakis to migrate to Canada and through them exerted-much in?uence with those who still remained in territory claimed by the English. Numerous treaties were made between these Indians and the Governors of Massachusetts Bay; and while many of the details in the treaties that were printed seem to relate only to trade, the real object of the English was to retain the Indian friendship.

The Iroquois played a more important part than the Eastern Indians and finally came to be regarded by the British colonies as a buffer state between them and the French. The Iroquois were well aware of their importance to both sides and the treaties with them show what astute politicians they were.
