The compelling account of how two heritages united in their struggle to gain freedom and equality in America--now updated with new content!

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 features a new cover and includes updated information about a neglected chapter in American history.

I have finished reading this book and enjoyed each chapter. This book truly focused on the relationship that African Americans and Native Americans have with each other and their contribution to America which has been not told until now.

I definitely would recommend this book as required reading in academia and to acknowledge the men and women who have been left out of the history books due to American Racism.

Mr. Katz's book is excellent and do yourself a favor and read this book.
