Before you write any more on this topic, do us all a favor and talk to Professor Robbie Ethridge or Professor Sheri M. Shuck-Hall. Or better still read their book "Mapping the Mississippian Shatter Zone: The Colonial Indian Slave Trade and Regional Instability in the American South." My grandson tells me the entire book can also be freely downloaded online, if you look for it. The title of their edited book is somewhat misleading but someone who hasn't read this book does not know Native history and has no business writing about nationhood.
