While each tribe has its own separate history, the struggle to maintain a separate, sovereign existence is common to most tribes, and while Pequot history has many unique elements, their struggle and ultimate triumph similarly demonstrate that the first key to economic development is sovereignty. Although the status of tribes as separate sovereigns has not always been clear, the concept has still played a vital part in tribal and U. S. history.
