    They generally saw the American Indians as trade partners and allies

    Explanation:

    Dutch traders were the first Europeans to meet with pecots in 1622 and, despite the misunderstandings that arose during the first contact, they quickly established mutually beneficial cooperation. By the end of the 1620s, Dutch merchants exported about 10,000 hides per year from the New Netherlands, a significant part of which were delivered to them by pecots.
