BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY: BLACK INDIANS IN THE UNITED STATES:

Historic relationships between Native Americans and African Americans were relatively neglected in the United States history studies. At various times African had more or less contact with Native Americans, although they did not live together in as great numbers as with Europeans. African slaves brought to the United States and their descendants have had a history of cultural,exchange and intermarriage with native Americans and other slaves who possessed Native American and European ancestry. Most interaction took place in the Southern United States where slaves were held in greater numbers.















































Numerous African American thus have some Native or inguistic ties to native people. Relationship among native American groups and African Americans have been varied and complex. Some groups were more accepting of Africans than others and welcome them as full members of their respective cultures and communities. Native peoples often disagreed about the role of ethnic African people in their communities. Other native Americans saw uses for slavery and did not oppose it for others.
