Description

The first two centuries of contact between Native and non-Native groups set into motion new social practices, definitions of personhood, and hierarchies of class, ethnicity, race, and gender. Diana diPaolo Loren focuses on the social and material interactions between groups living east of the Mississippi River during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In Contact explores how these diverse groups lived, worked, fought, intermarried, and died while unpacking the baggage of colonial contact.
