This book explores the relationship between indigenous and Atlantic slaveries in New France. Between about 1660 and 1760, French colonists and their Native allies enslaved thousands of Indians. The collection of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation includes relics of slavery: Indian slave halter (fitting emblem of indigenous North American slavery), shackles or leg irons, whips, and iron collars. Although they were produced at nearly the same time and for similar purposes, these slave restraints, like the cultures that made them, can seem worlds apart.
