There, black men and women found acceptance and friendship among our countryand#8217;s original inhabitants. Though they seldom appear in textbooks and movies, the children of Native- and African-American marriages helped shape the early days of the fur trade, added a new dimension to frontier diplomacy, and made a daring contribution to the fight for American liberty.andlt;BRandgt;Since its original publication, William Loren Katzand#8217;s andlt;iandgt;Black Indiansandlt;/iandgt; has remained the definitive work on a long, arduous quest for freedom and equality.
