New England Region: Its History and People, Part 1
By Trista L. Pollard
  

1     When you travel to New England, you can see America's past. Many of the first colonies were started in this region. The birth of our country happened in this region. The first immigrants settled along the Atlantic coast. They came to start new lives. You can still see New England's past in its towns, villages, and lighthouses. Let's explore this region's history and its people.
 
2     Before British settlers arrived, Indians or Native Americans were the first New Englanders. Two of the largest groups in the Northeast Region were the Algonquian and the Iroquois. The Algonquian tribes lived throughout New England. In Maine there were about twenty tribes. Each of these tribes was related to each other. Two of these tribes were the Penobscot and the Passamaquoddy. Penobscot Bay and the West Quoddy Head Peninsula were named after these tribes.
 
3     In Massachusetts, there were six major tribes. They were the Massachuset, the Wampanoag, the Nauset, the Pennacook, the Nipmuc, and the Pocumtuc. They shared the land and used its natural resources to survive. The Nipmuc and Wampanoag tribes also lived in Rhode Island. They shared this area with the Niantic and the Narragansett tribes. The Narragansett lived near Narragansett Bay. Connecticut had about sixteen tribes. There were 6,000 to 7,000 people in these tribes.
