    I just read a fascinating book on Squanto that suggests that his people distrusted him as a kind self promoter power hungry person. He was singularly influential because he was one of few who spoke English. I wonder if being kidnapped make him a victim of the Stockholm Syndrone. It’s said that the Wampanoag poisoned him and don’t think highly of him today. Fascinating how Tabloid his story is.

      Fascinating! I had never heard this before, but it does make sense. I am just finishing a book on a kidnapping of a native boy that happened several centuries later but with a similar effect – Jemmy Button was taken from Tierra del Fuego to England in the early 19th century. He was later returned, and it seems like for years afterwards he had a conflicted relationship with his former community and his own identity.
