Highland Settlers and Indian Lands

(p.201) 8 Highland Settlers and Indian Lands
White People, Indians, and Highlanders

Although Highland Scots forged patterns of coexistence with Indian people across large stretches of North America, they were, nonetheless, participants in a huge process of colonial encounter that deprived Indian people of their homelands in both the United States and Canada. This chapter surveys relations between Highland settlers and Indians in New York and Ontario, Nova Scotia, and Red River, Manitoba. Highland settlers not only contributed to the dispossession of Native people but also fundamentally changed the landscapes Native peoples had inhabited.

Keywords:   land, settlement, New York, Nova Scotia, Red River, Mi'kmaq, Ojibwa
