Released Tuesday, 30th January 2018
Good episode? Give it some love!
History books like to tell us that Native Americans did not fully understand British methods and ideas of trade. Is this really true?
Did Native Americans only understand trade as a form of simplistic, gift exchange?
Jessica Stern, a Professor of History at California State University, Fullerton and the author of The Lives in Objects: Native Americans, British Co…, takes us on a journey into the southeast during the early 18th century to show us how trade between Native Americans and British colonists really took place.
