Struggling with the Dutch

(p.61) Chapter 3 Struggling with the Dutch
The Memory of All Ancient Customs

This chapter focuses on the initial attempts of Hudson Valley Indians to integrate Dutch colonizers into their established system of intergroup relations. The Natives found the Europeans unwilling to adapt to local custom, and relations between Dutch and Indians were therefore often marked by conflict and violence. Nevertheless, as the Dutch period came to a close in 1664, the Hudson Valley Indians had reasons to feel that they had scored at least some victories in their dealings with these foreigners, who at times seemed as if they were ready to acquiesce to Native practice. Indeed, the relationship between Indians and colonists still fell far short of domination of the latter by the former.
