2 - Indigenous Historic Trade in the Western Hemisphere

from Part I - Indigenous Peoples and International Trade and Investment


In Chapter 2, Angelique EagleWoman (Wambdi A. Was’teWinyan) explores some historical trade relationships and the vast networks connecting Indigenous commerce in the Americas. She sets forth the values and worldviews that traditionally undergirded the commercial framework as well as providing an overview of the inter-nation trade in goods and services that has developed over hundreds of years. The chapter closes with insight into the potential for revitalizing and reconnecting traditional trade alliances to rebuild Indigenous economies.
