“From Refugees to Slave Traders: The Transformation of the Westo”
Native American Studies Center
In the mid-17th century the Rickohockan Indians settled at the Falls of the James River briefly. After battling the English and the Pamunkey, they negotiated a trade deal, changed their name to Westo, and settled along the Savannah River. Their move introduced guns and Native slaving in the Southeast, and had far-reaching consequences. This talk, presented by Maureen Meyers, Senior Archaeologist at New South Associates, will present the ethnohistoric evidence for the Westo and contextualize their action in a changing colonial economic sphere.
