Andrés Reséndez, The Other Slavery: The Uncovered Story of Indian Enslavement in America

From the time of the conquistadors until the early 20th century, tens of thousands of Indians were enslaved in the New World to work the gold and silver mines. This “other slavery” predated African slavery and lasted far longer. Reséndez makes the case that the indigenous population of North America was decimated not by smallpox, but by slavery. He argues that although Indian slavery was illegal, those who wanted to profit used social collusion and labor coercion to enslave the Indians. He challenges us to consider how influence, power, and capital are used to enslave people today.
