Joseph Johnson was an 18th-century Mohegan Indian leader, preacher, and schoolteacher in upper New York state. Johnson’s diaries, written between 1771 and 1773, document daily life in the Indian Christian communities, and his letters to white benefactors reveal both an uncommon talent for diplomacy and a powerful vision of Indian solidarity.
