Northern Indian Removal: An Unfamiliar History

"Northern Indian Removal" addresses the foundations and consequences of American expansion and Indian removal policy within the Great Lakes region in the early nineteenth century. Over the course of eight chapters I will deal exclusively with the process of removal among the northern tribes. The impact of diverse colonial interactions within the Great Lakes region made a significant difference in the manner in which northern Indians handled both American expansion and the enactment of removal policy. I will present an assessment of northern removal that will provide insight into not only into those colonial experiences of individual tribes but also into the place and perception of American Indians in the antebellum United States. This work will appeal to scholars of both American Indian and American history because it responds to a gap in the historiography of Indian removal and places the experiences of Great Lakes Indians within the national narrative of American history.
