Elliott Bay Book Company says
Coll Thrush, Associate Professor of History at the University of British Columbia and author of Native Seattle (a much-admired history of Seattle’s earliest days taking into account both the stories of Native people and settlers) speaks tonight about his newest book, Indigenous London: Native Travelers at the Heart of Empire (Yale University Press). This is London’s history as told through experiences of early travelers from Indigenous communities - from what would become North America, Australia and New Zealand. Beginning in the 16th Century, diplomats, captives and performers including Inuit travelers, the Powhatan Pocahontas, and Sioux performers visiting a few months after the Battle of Greasy Grass (aka Little Big Horn) were just a few of those whose stories appear in this thoroughly original, well researched and fascinating book that creates a very different view of the global city. Professor Thrush traveled to London with a group of students from UBC’s First Nations and Indigenous Studies programs during the summer of 2016, adding to recent cultural exchanges.
