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 Colonists, and Cultures of Labor and Exchange in the Southeast, 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.
