History notes that relations between them were "Strained." I guess this could best be described by "The Indian Massacre of 1622" where the Natives killed 347 colonist for: * Invading their lands, * Burning their homes and crops, * Attempting to take the land by force, * Lying to the natives saying they were "only there to trade not to take the land", * Inviting them to 'dances' and then murdering them * Refusing to follow the law of the land when they came there (a close analogy of the current Immigration population these same descendants now complain about with "Mexicans"). The colonists responded by proposing a "Truce" with the tribe, and gave them poisoned wine which killed 200, they had to strangle the other 50 who didn't drink the wine.

What right did colonist have?

Colonists, such as the European people who colonised the American continent, believed they had the right to settle in those lands because they were "unclaimed" by anyone else (e.g. not part of another European state). Generally speaking they did not recognise any native American countries and also considered it a divine obligation to impose the Christian religion on the "uncivilized" and "pagan" native people of America who would otherwise live damned lives of ignorance and barbarity. Of course, viewed with modern morality, the colonists had no "right" to take other peoples lands.
