Lecture no. 6 from the course: Native Peoples of North America
Taught by Professor Daniel M. Cobb | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
Through an exploration of the Iroquois Confederacy and the Lenape—or Delaware—people in the Northeast, the Great Lakes region—called by the French the pays d’en haut-- and the Southeast, you’ll learn how Native Americans kept or lost their lands through treaties, war, and negotiations. In many cases, the repercussions of these conflicts sometimes went beyond relocation, resulting in enslavement or near annihilation.
