Within this long coastal strip, indigenous population had already been in decline for a century as a result of European contact. In the Southeast, indigenous population fell by some 23 percent over the course of the sixteenth century. In the Northeast, where fewer intrusions occurred, decline over the same period was less marked, with population falling by less than 5 percent. The arrival of the English in force during the seventeenth century would change the equation. Overall, rates of indigenous population decline accelerated catastrophically, accompanied by a relative shift in emphasis to the Northeast as the locale of greatest loss.
