Governor Kieft's War
Kieft's War, also known as the Wappinger War, was a conflict (1643–1645) between settlers of the nascent colony of New Netherland and the native Lenape population in what would later become the New York metropolitan area of the United States. It is named for Director of New Netherland Willem Kieft, who had ordered an attack without approval of his advisory council and against the wishes of the colonists. Dutch soldiers attacked Lenape camps and massacred the native inhabitants, which encouraged unification among the regional Algonquian tribes against the Dutch, and precipitated waves of attacks on both sides. This was one of the earliest conflicts between Native Americans and European settlers. Displeased with Kieft, the Dutch West India Company recalled him and he died while returning to the Netherlands. Peter Stuyvesant succeeded him in New Netherland. Because of the continuing threat by the Algonquians, numerous Dutch settlers returned to the Netherlands, and growth of the colony slowed.

The Dutch, like all Europeans that came to the New World, engaged in a series of conflicts with coastal Native Americans during the first half-century after settlement. However, it should be noted that after the British takeover in 1664 there were few serious Indian-European conflicts in the coastal areas of the former New Netherland because by that time Dutch policies had already led to European supremacy and to the moral defeat of nearly all of the coastal tribes.
