Native American Power in the United States, 1783-1795

This book is a study of the role of Native Americans in the physical and political development of the United States during the first few years of its existence. An evaluation of the function and operation of power both within Native American groups and their relations with outsiders, which informed their diverse and complex strategies of resistance to white westward expansion, forms a central component of the study. That resistance, strengthened by alliances with the British on the northern frontier and Spain in the south, did more than just physically prevent the United States from occupying its western territories. It fostered early federal-state antagonism, stimulated east-west sectionalism, and heightened international tensions on the continent almost to the point of war. The new republic of the United States was based on a precarious and as yet unformed political structure, its integrity threatened by both foreign interference and domestic fragmentation. The Native American contribution to the fragility of the union during this period made them key players in the struggle to create a stable and enduring union. Celia Barnes is currently working as Director of Studies at the Piccadilly School of English in Bolzano, Italy.
