Abstract and Keywords

From 1680 to the late eighteenth century, Indians remained the most powerful polities in a politically reorganized North America. When disruptions occurred across most of the continent, they tended to come from other Indians, from new cycles of disease, or as a consequence of adopting new goods or ideas, rather than as a direct consequence of European actions. This chapter explores this interpretive theme through overviews of Quapaw consumerism in the middle Mississippi valley, the Chickasaws and the southeastern slave trade, Osage expansion in the western Mississippi valley, the Five Nations Iroquois Grand Settlement of 1701, the adoption of horses on the Great Plains, and two places that experienced the less common but better-known situation of living with permanent European settlers: the Rio Grande valley and southern New England.

Keywords: Chickasaws, Great Plains, Osages, Iroquois, Metacom’s War, King Philip’s War, Pueblo Revolt, Quapaws, Seven Years’ War
