Book #12: Slavery in Indian Country

Also great. I’m really learning a lot about the ways that Indian slavery changed over time as a result of different and evolving interactions with colonists and between tribes. For example: the plantation economy of the Carolinas was greatly enabled by money generated by buying and selling Indians. Also, some of the major Indian confederacies were formed as a result of Indian slavery and its far-reaching consequences. And the common practice of Indians enslaving other Indians, which predated contact with colonial powers, changed greatly over time and place. I could go on and on.
