Katz explores the little-told story of black Indians--people with dual African and Native American ancestry or African Americans who lived primarily with Native Americans. Using fascinating biographies and detailed research, he creates a chronology of this hidden heritage during the settlement of the American West. Illustrations.
From the Publisher:
The compelling account of how two heritages united in their struggle to gain freedom and equality in America?now updated with new content!The first paths to freedom taken by runaway slaves led to Native American villages. There, black men and women found acceptance and friendship among our country's original inhabitants. Though they seldom appear in textbooks and movies, the children of Native- and African-American marriages helped shape the early days of the fur trade, added a new dimension to frontier diplomacy, and made a daring contribution to the fight for American liberty.

Since its original publication, William Loren Katz's Black Indians has remained the definitive work on a long, arduous quest for freedom and equality. This new edition features a new cover and includes updated information about a neglected chapter in American history.Using the records kept by mixed Indian and African-American colonies located in South, Central, and North America, the author traces the development and contributions of these biracial societies, which formed as a result of white oppression.
