Joyous Publishing

A nonfiction account of how the colonists enslaved the Indians, laying the foundation for the enslavement of millions of Black people.

In what is now the eastern and southern United States and Canada, the colonists used enslavement as a weapon of war in an effort to destroy the Indian nations and obtain the land for their own use. The practice began before Columbus kidnapped Indians to take to Spain and continued until about the end of the Revolutionary War. The English, Dutch, French, and Spanish colonists all employed enslavement of Indians as a policy. 

Regarding King Philip's War of 1675-76:
"Captain Benjamin Church, who had been a good friend to the Indians until the outbreak of the war, marched to the aid of Dartmouth but arrived too late to save it. Seeking safety in the turmoil, 160 of the Dartmouth Tribe who were part of the Wampanoag Federation but who were not involved in the war, surrendered themselves to Church, who promised them kind treatment. He sent them to Plymouth, but much to his disgust, the authorities disregarded his promise and sold the Indians into slavery."
