Aboriginal Slavery on the Northwest Coast of North America

This chapter examines rank and class within the culture areas in the Northwest Coast of North America in the context of an approach of social stratification that considers the presence of both slave and free strata, and discusses ethnographic data supporting a class interpretation. The analysis reveals that the intensity of class divisions appears to have varied during the development of slavery.

Keywords:   rank, class, culture areas, Northwest Coast, North America, social stratification, class interpretation, class divisions
