Nathaniel Millett, Associate Professor, Dept. of History, Saint Louis University, and Weatherhead Resident Scholar, SAR
Dr. Millett’s colloquium focuses on the myriad of ways that Native Americans shaped the societies of the British West Indies from the sixteenth century through the nineteenth century. He discusses: geopolitics, culture, slavery, race, economics, and Afro-Indian interactions among an array of topics. Ultimately, the argument outlined is that the early modern Anglo-Caribbean needs to be understood as a tri-racial region in which Native Americans played a critical role in shaping societies.
