Historian Reséndez's (A Land So Strange, 2007) assertion in this insightful and timely contribution to native history is that the enslavement of North American Indians from the sixteenth through the late nineteenth century is a "key missing piece" of the annals of the hemisphere. He focuses on the areas that experienced the most intense slavery: the Caribbean, Mexico, and the American Southwest. Although the New Laws passed by Spain in 1542 prohibited Indian slavery in both Spain and the Americas, they were virtually unenforceable and complicated by the proliferation of mines and the resulting need for laborers. By the early 1800s, Indian slavery almost disappeared from the East Coast, replaced by African slavery, but it remained strong in the West as Apaches and Comanches took slaves in their raids into Mexico, Yaquis were transported from Sonora and enslaved, and the Mormons made extensive use of slave labor. Reséndez concludes this significant work by observing that although slavery was abolished in 1865 by the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution, it is unclear when the enslavement of Indians actually ended.
