Summary
The first history of Indian slavery in the Mississippi Valley during the colonial era. Based almost entirely on original source documents from the United States, France, and Spain, Carl J. Ekberg's "Stealing Indian Women" provides a novel overview of Indian slavery in the Mississippi Valley. His detailed study of a fascinating and convoluted criminal case involving various slave women and a mé tis (mixed-blood) woodsman named Cé ladon illuminates race and gender relations, Creole culture, and the lives of Indian slaves--particularly women--in ways never before possible
