In the 1520s Verrazzano traded with Indians who had done so previously with other Europeans and were very selective in their choices. Peoples along the entire east coast obtained diverse European items during the sixteenth century. Such goods quickly entered longstanding trading networks and reached societies located far in the interior, sometimes decades before Europeans arrived in their territory. The Europeans especially coveted the furs the Indians obtained from trapping and hunting. As some coastal tribes became more dependent on European goods, they resorted to hunting full time, neglecting other subsistence pursuits and relying on outsiders for their food supplies.
As some coastal tribes became more dependent on European goods, they resorted to hunting full time, neglecting other subsistence pursuits and relying on outsiders for their food supplies. Tribal chiefs found their power enhanced, as custom dictated that they receive a share of each hunt and as Europeans made known their preference for dealing with single leaders. This translated into more goods that leaders could redistribute to their people in return for greater authority and prestige. Neighboring societies competed more frequently over hunting zones and access to European traders.
