UMaine Wabanaki Studies, Text
With the coming of the Europeans to the lands upon which the Wabanakis lived, hunted, and fished, many disastrous changes took place. In the battle between England and France on New World soil, the Wabanaki people suffered and struggled in the face of war, disease, famine, and dislocation. As these two countries fought in Europe, so did their missionaries and colonists fight in the New World to religiously convert the Wabanakis, in order to gain their trust and alliances. The many years of bloody fighting took their toll on the Wabanakis, who ended up losing their young, their elders, their way of life, and their ancestral lands.
