Stone Walls

This article implies all walls are built by colonizers and the only Native Americans involved were those who might have been hired as slaves.

However, I learned from other experts that many rock walls in New England were built by the indigenous people, particularly once confined in "praying villages," such as, those in Natick and Carlisle. The walls typically lead to marshes or bluffs and were treated more like paths than walls.
