Description

Professor of English Literature examines seven Indigenous resistance struggles in Mexico, United States and Canada and how they quickly became fodder for dramas and epics produced by colonial writers. He examines the Indigenous leadership of these resistance movements and shows how each became the object of stage plays and biographies. The leaders of these resistance movements include Moctezuma, Metacom, Pontiac, Logan, the Natchez, the Pueblo Revolt, and Tecumseh.
