Overview

Native American Adoption, Captivity, and Slavery in Changing Contexts radically rethinks the theoretical parameters through which we interpret both current and past ideas of adoption, captivity, and slavery among Native American societies in an interdisciplinary perspective. The book covers a period of over 800 years of North American history, from Native American archaeological cultures to the late nineteenth century. Individual case studies reframe concepts related to adoption, captivity, and slavery through art, literature, archaeology, and anthropology. In doing so, they highlight the importance of the interaction between perceptions, representations, and lived experience associated with the facts of slavery.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'This rich and challenging volume offers important new perspectives on the history of Native American enslavement in both indigenous and colonial settings. With scholarship ranging across most of North America and spanning several centuries, the authors-all established authorities in their fields-demonstrate the diversity of slavery in the Americas and the centrality of Native enslavement to early modern colonialism. This is essential reading, not only for students of Native American history, but also for anyone interested in the history and anthropology of slavery.' - Brett Rushforth, author of Bonds of Alliance: Indigenous and Atlantic Slaveries in New France

'Challenging the simplistic and often culturally biased literature on this topic, the authors analyze written and visual documents as expressions of complex encounters First Nations people experienced with other tribes, with the various colonial nations with whom they sometimes warred and sometimes formed alliances, and, notably, with African slaves. After finishing Native American Adoption, Captivity, and Slavery in Changing Contexts I felt immensely satisfied with all I had learned. This is a wonderful book and I enthusiastically recommend it.' - Aldona Jonaitis, director emerita, University of Alaska Museum of the North

'Bringing together perspectives from archeology, ethnohistory, art history, literary studies, and religious studies, this volume contributes substantially to our knowledge of the significance of slavery, captivity, and adoption in Native North America, in both indigenous and colonial contexts.' - Pauline Turbaner Strong, author of Captive Selves, Captivating Others: The Politics and Poetics of Colonial American Captivity Narratives

Max Carocci lectures on Indigenous Arts of the Americas for the program World Arts and Artefacts, which he directs in joint collaboration with Birkbeck College's department of History of Art and Screen Media (University of London) and the British Museum. He has recently curated Warriors of the Plains, an exhibition on Plains Indian arts, for the British Museum. His forthcoming monograph, The Arts of Plains Indian Warfare (2012), expands his long-standing focus on Native American arts from an anthropological perspective, which he has developed over more than twenty years of research and publications about Native American expressive cultures. He is also curator of the forthcoming exhibition on Native American photographic collections from the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland due to open at their London headquarters in 2012.

Stephanie Pratt is an associate professor(reader) of Art History at the University of Plymouth. She has published a number of essays concerning the visual representation of Native Americans in European art from the period c. 1600 to the end of the nineteenth century. Her monograph, American Indians in British Art, 1700–1840, was published in 2005. Recently, she has focused on how Native American cultures and arts have been represented in Western museums and galleries and is developing a book-length study of early North American collections of Native American ethnographica. She is principal curator for the upcoming exhibition George Catlin's Indian Gallery: Displaying Indigenous America in Nineteenth Century Europe, to be held at the National Portrait Gallery, London, in 2013.
