Chapter One reviews the history of U.S.-Native relations, focusing on cultural interactions and identities during the time period between European contact and the beginning of the nineteenth century prior to the removal era. The chapter details the early interactions among American Indians and both Europeans and Americans. Both institutional and Native discourses are examined to demonstrate how colonizing rhetoric and decolonizing rhetoric undergirded the early relationships preceding the Indian Removal Act of 1830.
