Aboriginal Slavery on the Northwest Coast of North America

University of California Press

This chapter traces the history of Northwest Coast slavery in antiquity, focusing on the decades immediately preceding 1770, and describes evidence from the three major types of sources of information: archaeology, eighteenth-century European accounts, and language. The findings suggest that slavery was practiced by the aboriginal inhabitants of the region before contact with Europeans in the last third of the eighteenth century, probably for centuries.
