Bremer, Emma Elizabeth
MetadataShow full item record
North America was home to a vast set of trade networks both prehistorically and historically. In several instances key passages within these networks were controlled by societies who acted as middlemen. This position allowed them to command great power and wealth, which created tension with their neighbors and trade partners. This study examines how the Monongahela of the upper Ohio River valley (A.D. 1100-1635), the Mohawk of the Mohawk valley (A.D. 1525-1776), and the Meskwaki of the Fox River Passage (A.D. 1665-1730) settled within their territories and how these decisions may have reflected considerations including subsistence, control of routes, and defense.
