This dictionary of Native American places was originally published in 1909. Alphabetically arranged by Native American name, this reference work gives insight into the Native origins of Rhode Island cities, towns, rivers, streams, lakes, and other locales. What was the Narragansett territory is closely aligned with the current boundaries of the state of Rhode Island. The significance of the word Narragansett is "at the little point?" or "island."
