About this book

The new world created through Anglophone emigration in the 19th century has been much studied. But there have been few accounts of what this meant for the Indigenous populations. This book shows that Indigenous communities tenaciously held land in the midst of dispossession, whilst becoming interconnected through their struggles to do so.

Reviews



'Though the restless mobility at the heart of 'settler' colonialism is well known, its indigenous histories have been comparatively invisible in the British empire context. As this wide-ranging collections shows, indigenous perseverance happened on the move. Taken together, the essays remind us that dispossession required flexible responses at multiple scales and speeds. They urge us to think of the polycentric, networked histories made visible here not as simply as a static archive, but as the dynamic grounds for thinking new kinds of indigenous futures as well.' - Antoinette Burton, University of Illinois, USA
