Guest: Andres Resendez, Professor of History, University of California, Davis The story of African slavery in America is well known. Less told in the history books – and often not at all in school classrooms – is the story of Native American enslavement. In fact, diseases brought to continent by European explorers and colonists are often blamed for nearly wiping out indigenous communities. But the enslavement of Native Americans played an equal role in that, according to historian Andres Resendez. His book, “The Other Slavery: The Uncovered Story of Indian Enslavement in America” won the Bancroft Prize for History in 2017.
