Aboriginal Slavery on the Northwest Coast of North AmericaeBook - 1997
This investigation of slavery on the northwest coast of North America shows that northwest coast servitude, relatively neglected by researchers in the past, fits an appropriate cross-cultural definition of slavery. Arguing that slaves and slavery were central to these hunting-fishing-gathering societies, the text points out how important slaves were to the northwest economies for their labour and for their value as major items of exchange.
