He also studied with white schoolteachers at Mohegan (Silverman 2010:53), learning the English language so he could read the Bible for himself. By his seventeenth year, Occom had found his calling in life: to spread Christianity to his Native brethren in southeastern Connecticut and the surrounding areas. As described in the introductory chapter, this mission tied in directly to his plans for Native revitalization and survival in colonial New England. Together these twin goals constituted his life’s work, a fact that he seemed aware of at an impressively early age (Occom 2006e [1768]).

Written and oral records of colonial encounters added new depth to archaeological interpretations and mitigated the reliance on material essences in such research.

Instead of focusing on the cultural traits exhibited by various ethnic groups, he innovated a new approach by directing his attention toward the creation or maintenance of ethnic boundaries. He saw such boundaries as negotiated between insiders and outsiders rather than as stable and unchanging (Barth 26 chapter 2 1998a [1969]:15).
