Indian slavery in colonial America
European enslavement of American Indians began with Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the New World. The slave trade expanded with European colonies, and though African slave labor filled many needs, huge numbers of America’s indigenous peoples continued to be captured and forced to work as slaves. Although central to the process of colony building in what became the United States, this phenomena has received scant attention from historians. Indian Slavery in Colonial America, edited by Alan Gallay, examines the complicated dynamics of Indian enslavement. How and why Indians became both slaves of the Europeans and suppliers of slavery’s victims is the subject of this book. The essays in this collection use Indian slavery as a lens through which to explore both Indian and European societies and their interactions, as well as relations between and among Native groups. Alan Gallay is a professor of history at Texas Christian University. He is the author or editor of several books, including The Indian Slave Trade: The Rise of the English Empire in the American South, 1670-1717, winner of the 2003 Bancroft Prize, and Voices of the Old South: Eyewitness Accounts, 1528-1861.
