The first two-hundred years of Western civilization in the
Americas was a time when fundamental and sometimes catastrophic
changes occurred in Native American communities in the South.
In "The Transformation of the Southeastern Indians," historians,
anthropologists, and archaeologists provide perspectives on how
this era shaped American Indian society for later generations and
how it even affects these communities today.
This collection of essays presents the most current scholarship
on the social history of the South, identifying and examining the
historical forces, trends, and events that were attendant to the
formation of the Indians of the colonial South.
The essayists discuss how Southeastern Indian culture and
society evolved. They focus on such aspects as the introduction of
European diseases to the New World, long-distance migration and
relocation, the influences of the Spanish mission system, the
effects of the English plantation system, the northern fur trade of
the English, and the French, Dutch, and English trade of Indian
slaves and deerskins in the South.
This book covers the full geographic and social scope of the
Southeast, including the indigenous peoples of Florida, Virginia,
Maryland, the Appalachian Mountains, the Carolina Piedmont, the
Ohio Valley, and the Central and Lower Mississippi Valleys.
