These Algonquian people had their shit together; in Massachusetts, & preceding the Pilgrims, the 1776 revolution, and the American Transcendentalists.  I am partly posting this because their lifestyle somewhat reflects on things I have been writing or posting lately.  And into the future.  (Read also about the interesting, "King Philip's War"). Wiki: The Wampanoag:

The Wampanoag /ˈwɑːmpənɔːɡ/, also called Massasoit[1] and also rendered Wôpanâak, are a Native American people in North America. They were a loose confederacy made up of several tribes.

In the beginning of the 17th century, at the time of first contact with the English, the Wampanoag lived in southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island, a territory that encompassed present-day Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket islands. Their population numbered in the thousands due to the richness of the environment and their cultivation of corn, beans and squash. Three thousand Wampanoag lived on Martha's Vineyard alone.

Many Wampanoag people today are enrolled in two federally recognized tribes, the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe and the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head, or four state-recognized tribes in Massachusetts.

Here's a great resource for Native American research: Native Heritage Project.
