Abstract / Excerpt
“...Yet even as our examination of slave resistance in the Americas has expanded in depth and breadth, certain sites have only been explored in a rather cursory manner. The interactions between Native Americans and African-Americans, for example, have been a relatively recent pivotal point of reference for scholars. Yet slave resistance has become one of the most controversial, and often denied, aspects of the discourse related to the enslavement of people of African descent by Native Americans in nineteenth-century Indian Territory (current-day northeastern Oklahoma).”
