Publisher's Summary

The compelling account of how two heritages united in their struggle to gain freedom and equality in America.

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 includes updated information about a neglected chapter in American history.

Amazing Book!

Amazing Book! It's unfortunate that we don't learn about this history early on. The author did a great job and the narrating was great as well!

An absolute necessity

This book is an absolute necessity to all Young Americans and old as well, especially in this time of racial turmoil in our country This book is needed for all eyes and ears to read or listen to. My only very small complaint with this book is the narrator moved from chapter tochapter very quickly and there wasn't a break or pause in speech. Small complaint.

This will make you ask, ‘What else don’t I know?'

This book is a massive revelation of the outrageous neglect of the American education system. It is a treasure of knowledge ––to any American, but especially, to people who have an African or Native heritage. One of the books few flaws is that it is not longer and more in-depth. It provides a wealth of names and events to google, but every chapter could have been expanded into a book of its own. That said, the author explained that the length of the book was due to restrictions of the publisher.

The narrator is professional and sufficiently respectful, but he did seem awkward when he read quotes with the dialect of a Black woman from the Antebellum era. But that’s a minor blemish, if at all.

I’m writing this on the day before Thanksgiving. I’m grateful that we live in a time when works like this can be published and distributed. Many of the voices described in this book did not have that blessing. Peace.

The Indigenous are the so called Black people.

This story needs to be corrected about the copper colored people who were here before the so called Indians.
