This section contains links to pages that have either been set up by the nations themselves, or are pages devoted to a particular nation, and are ALPHABETICAL BY TRIBAL NAME. Pages maintained by Indian Nations or individuals are indicated with this symbol:. Pages without this symbol are primarily ABOUT specific nations, but not by them.
Included are both recognized and unrecognized tribes.
Dick Shovel has begun compiling good general historical & cultural overviews of a couple of dozen tribes. Take a look at First Nations Histories - a good source for student papers! Dick also has a listing of tribes, both federally and state recognized, as well as those with no formal governmental recognition at all. Added 8/3/99; updated 5/15/00.
Most of the New England tribes spoke Algonquian languages, and many of the "Indian" words common in English today - such as raccoon, succotash, Massachusetts, moccasin, etc. - are from one or another of the Algonquian languages, such as Abenaki, Wampanoag, Nipmuc, Penboscot, Shawnee, Delaware, etc. But if you are a student who has been assigned to write a report on the "Algonquian Indians", go back to school and tell your teacher that she has to decide WHICH Algonquian-speakers she has in mind. If she really does mean the Algonquin Indians in Canada, check out this web site.
