Bonds of Alliance

This chapter discusses how Indians employed the Indian slave trade to shape the contours of the alliance even as it limited French options. As French colonizers sought to enlarge their influence in the West, they embraced an ever-expanding number of Indians as commercial and military partners. The Indian slave trade emerged as the most valuable tool employed by New France's Native allies to limit French expansion and determine the makeup of the French-led alliance.
