    White Native Americans?

    I was working on my genealogy, and I found an ancestor in the Plymouth Colony named Mary "Little Dove" Hyanno. She was supposedly of the Wampanoag tribe, but she was described as a "white Indian with flaming red hair." Apparently, there was a band of "white Indians" among he Wampanoag Tribe.

    I wonder if these were descendants of the Vikings who came to "Vinland" with Leif Eriksson? The landing of Leif Eriksson (Anse aux Meadows) is only a little farther north from the Hyannis, MA area.

    Do I get kicked out of Skadi if I have 1/512th native American?

    I have read many aticles about the Wampanoag Indians while researching early New England history. My ancestor Elder John Crandall bought his land directly from them at Westerly, Rhode Island. The Indians & the Crandalls got along very well. Every year the Crandalls would allow the Wampanoags to come use their property for an annual get-together, as they had before they sold it to him.
    This same land has remained in the Crandall family since the 1600's. Recently the town of Westerly coveted the area for development and the present Crandall refused to sell. Then they were going to force him to sell it to them by enforcing the right of public domain. But, he out witted them by giving the land to the present day Wampanoags, and therefore making it exempt from the right of public domain.
    I thought perhaps you would like to hear this interesting story about the Wampanoags at Westerly, and my Crandall ancestors.

    Interesting facts about the Plymouth area. I live out west, so I have never seen New England. From what I can deduce the Europeans and Native Americans got along pretty well in the New England area, in spite of what the Hollywood "Revisionist History" movies would have you believe.

    I thought that this had been refuted. Whatever the case, while there was no doubt more contact between Europe and the New World prior to its "discovery" in 1492, I find it doubtful that there would have been "white Native Americans".
