A Troubled Marriage : Indigenous Elites of the Colonial Americas
Part of the DiA!logos Series series
A Troubled Marriage describes the lives of native leaders whose resilience and creativity allowed them to survive and prosper in the traumatic era of European conquest and colonial rule.
They served as soldiers, scholars, artists, artisans, and missionaries within early transatlantic empires and later nation-states.
These Indian and mestizo men and women wove together cultures, shaping the new traditions and institutions of the colonial Americas.
In a comparative study that spans more than three centuries and much of the Western Hemisphere, McEnroe challenges common assumptions about the relationships among victors, vanquished, and their shared progeny.
