  • Europeans -and- Natives View Each Other (1700-1775)

    Below is a link to an article from the National Humanities Center titled “European Americans and Native Americans View Each Other, 1700-1775.”
    Quoting from the introduction:
    “Here we canvas the many descriptions of Indians by white colonists and Europeans, and sample the sparse but telling record of the Native American perspective on Europeans and their culture in pre-revolutionary eighteenth-century British America. All come to us, of course, through the white man's eye, ear, and pen. Were it not for white missionaries, explorers, and frontier negotiators (the go-betweens known as “wood's men”), we would have a much sparser record of the Indian response to colonists and their “civilizing” campaigns.”
