    Book synopsis: This book radically rethinks the theoretical parameters through which we interpret both current and past ideas of captivity, adoption and slavery among Native American societies in an interdisciplinary perspective. The book covers a period of over 800 years of North American history from Native American archaeological cultures to the nineteenth century. Individual case studies reframe concepts related to adoption, captivity and slavery through art, literature, archaeology, and anthropology to highlight the importance of the interaction between perceptions, representations and lived experience associated with the facts of slavery.
