p. 413. Indians in the Eastlocked

  • Theda Perdue
  •  and Michael D. Green


As the American Revolution ended, Native peoples saw new challenges. Although the United States had just been created, the survival of the new nation relied on cooperation with the indigenous nations to continue and thrive. ‘Indians in the East’ looks at the early history of relations between the new Americans and Native Americans following the American Revolution, how the Indian tribes were treated, and specifically how Indians in the East were treated and driven from their homelands. Some Indians remained in the East, but they retained so little land that they seemed to be more of an annoyance than a threat to the whites.
