Looking for a panelist and chair for next year's AHA in Seattle.
This panel examines the ways Indians in the colonial period negotiated, bargained, and politicked with other Indian groups and extended these concepts to dealings with Europeans. By keeping in mind that Europeans played a small, albeit vocal, role upon a crowded stage, one can better recognize different metaphors, meanings, and goals that emphasize objectives different from European efforts to protect settlements, secure trade, and build empires. So far, one paper will discuss the adoption of the Tuscaroras as the "Sixth Nation" of the Iroquois. A second paper will look at the intersection of native protocols and networks with English and American diplomatic efforts in the Ohio River valley.
Looking for a third panelist and a chair.
panelist: email to me an abstract and CV
