This is essential reading for all inhabitants of the Americas. A long neglected, indeed suppressed, part of the history of the many peoples whose descendents inhabit North, Central and South America. The courageous First Nations and African slaves understood the meaning of community, family, freedom and peace and did their best to establish these values. European capitalists have much to be ashamed of in their treatment of others. Hopefully present day citizens will wake up and right the wrongs of the past.
This book is clearly written. It goes far in shining light on a painful past.
Thank you, William Katz, for writing it.

I learned how Africans and Native Americans met to become biracial people in a world
where slavery was considered the norm in southern states. I was amazed to learn
how much the Africans and Native Americans shared in terms of religion, a belief in
economic cooperation and that the two races were not prejudice against one another.
I would recommend this book to any person who wants to learn more about how the
Black Indians started in America notwithstanding the white man's racial doctrines.

at an early age or even in their teen years could give them a better idea of who they are. This information may even create in a child a sense of identity that commands mutual respect.
