The Seven Years’ War in Indian Country

Lecture no. 7 from the course: Native Peoples of North America

The Seven Years’ War in Indian Country

Taught by Professor Daniel M. Cobb | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

The French and Indian War is often portrayed in history as a crucial turning point for Native nations in the East. In some cases, that is true. For some, it served as a victory, for others a defeat. And for a greater number still it had no immediate impact on their lives. This lecture will change the storyline you’ve heard by exploring the perspectives of Native people who experienced the era quite differently—tribal nations that deployed both time-tested and innovative strategies to survive between Europe’s would-be empires.
