Why were Native Americans not enslaved in North America?A) They died from the harsh working conditions and disease.B) Being familiar with the wilderness made it easy for them to escape.C) They traded goods with the slaveholders.D) All the Native Americans decided to move to South America.
Weegy: A) They died from the harsh working conditions and disease. Native Americans were slaves from Canada to South America and right across the North American continent. [ There were far more Native American slaves than black slaves and they were enslaved far longer than Black slaves. Native Americans were slaves for “500 years” from the 1400s to the 1900s. Native Americans were slaves for 200 years before African Americans ever set foot in the Western hemisphere. Native American slaves were shipped to the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East. Native Americans were slaves long after slavery was abolished because the laws did not apply to them, because they were not citizens. - - - - The first Native American group encountered by Columbus, the 250,000 Arawaks of Haiti, were violently enslaved. Only 500 survived by the year 1550, and the group was extinct before 1650. - - - - The Massachusetts government offered 20 shillings bounty for every Indian scalp, and 40 shillings for every prisoner who could be sold into slavery. Soldiers were allowed to enslave any Indian woman or child under 14 they could capture. Peaceful Indians of Dartmouth and Dover were invited to negotiate or seek refuge at trading posts- and were sold onto slave ships. It is not known how many Indians were sold into slavery, but in this campaign, 500 enslaved Indians were shipped from Plymouth alone. It has been recently estimated that more than 600,000 South-eastern Native Americans were enslaved between 1521 and 1776. Adult Native American slaves would often escape Virginia plantations unless their toes were cut off. - - - - - - - In Canada, the Royal Council (1745) sanctioned Indian slavery. In early operations of the Hudson's Bay Company, trading Indian women was a matter of business. Arriving at York, Indian Women were traded along with beaver pelts and buffalo robes. ] (More)
