This chapter focuses on captivity and slavery in aboriginal cultures in the Southeast and Northwest Coast of North America, discussing some possible servile statuses found in aboriginal eastern North American societies in order to provide a continent-wide context for Northwest Coast slavery. It explains that the common starting point of slavery for both the Northwest Coast and eastern North America was captives taken in intergroup fighting, who either became slaves or tortured and killed, before, or shortly after, they arrived in their captors' home communities.

Keywords:   captivity, slavery, aboriginal cultures, Northwest Coast, eastern North America, intergroup fighting
