About this title:

Synopsis: The study of Black Indians’ contributions to the nation’s history is an account of the accomplishments of people of bi-racial and multi-racial ancestry and their connection to ancestral homelands centering on and about the Appalachian Mountains. These people represent a majority of Americans, particularly those of color. Their experiences from the arrival of the Europeans through the Civil War adversely affected relationship with the ancestral grounds that shape lives, cultures, traditions, and perspectives. Jointly, both people of the Appalachian region shaped the nation’s early history and collective identity. Both would jointly raid plantations to free recruits for their fight against slavery, as well as retrieve love ones from this inhumane institution. The study helps us understand how people besieged by slavery, encroachment, and assimilation struggled to restore their freedom, culture, traditions, harmony with nature, and self-determination. This study provides an important contribution to humanity’s self-understanding and how the environment shapes culture, tradition, and relationships with other races and ethnic groups. The relevance of this work is found in its contribution to the understanding of humanity itself.
