"The Other Slavery"

University of California, Davis, professor Andres Resendez examines the system of bondage that targeted Native Americans, a system that was every bit as terrible, degrading, and vast as African slavery. Anywhere between 2.5 and 5 million Native Americans may have been enslaved throughout the hemisphere in the centuries between the arrival of Columbus and the beginning of the 20th century. And interestingly, in contrast to African slavery which targeted mostly adult males, the majority of these Indian slaves were women and children.
