When we explore the history of early America, we often look at people who lived in North America. But what about the people who lived and worked in European metropoles?
What about Native Americans?
We explore early American history through a slightly different lens, a lens that allows us to see interactions that occurred between Native American peoples and English men and women who lived in London.
Our guide for this exploration is Coll Thrush, an Associate Professor of History at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver and author of Indigenous London: Native Travelers at the Heart of the Empire.
