The Wampanoag were among the first Native People of America to greet the european newcomers. At first they got along with each other kind of well, but later relations became less good since the europeans became more and more, taking more and more land of the Indians, who found it difficult over time to follow their own traditional way of life. Those newcomers over the decades even thought to control the Indians in their ways of religion and ways of living until many Indians had enough and war broke out in 1676, when Metacomet, also known as King Philip, united Wampanoag, Narragansett, Nipmuck, Massachusett and other Bands to fight for their rights. After first success the Indians were hunted down, many killed or taken captive. A number of those captives were shiped as slaves to Bermuda, while other survivers were allowed to live on small reservations in their former homelands. Descendants are still living there.
