The chieftains sometimes ﬁelded large armies, which could be divided into squadrons and accompanied by the pounding of drums. ” Indigenous people engaged in targeted violence and, less frequently, “indiscriminate slaughter” and ritual sacriﬁce. 7 Warfare in indigenous cultural traditions characteristically was short and seasonal but cruel and vicious. Indians attacked by surprise, carried out excruciating tortures, took scalps and otherwise mutilated the corpses of the dead. Profoundly gendered, Indian violence was a young warrior’s masculine path to glory.
Contact with the enemy and taking scalps provided evidence of courage and accomplishment in battle, thereby enhancing the warrior’s status in society. Success on the battleﬁeld was a prerequisite for would-be chieftains. ”8 The killing of some captives and the taking of others characterized the Indian way of war. Indians took into their societies captives—both Indian and European—to replace those who had been lost to war or disease (thus to “cover the dead”). Especially as their populations became ravaged by diseases to which they lacked immunities, many North American Indian tribes employed war and captive-taking to rebuild their numbers.
The once powerful tribe had been devastated by a smallpox epidemic and was vulnerable. 40 Once the war began, however, the Mohegan and Narragansett underscored the rivalries among indigenous bands by allying with the Puritans in order to strike back at their longstanding enemies, the Pequot. Atrocity-ﬁlled genocidal warfare characterized New England’s ﬁrst full-scale Anglo-Indian conﬂict. In May 1637 Massachusetts Bay and its Indian allies launched an exterminatory assault against a Pequot village on the Mystic River.
