The Other Slavery: Histories of Indian Bondage from New Spain to the Southwestern United States

Stories of enslaved Indigenous peoples have often been absent from the historical narrative. Join the Smithsonian for a virtual symposium that explores the hidden stories of enslaved Indigenous peoples, focusing on the legacy of Spanish colonization in the Americas and Asia and its impact on what is now the southwestern United States. Experts from a range of academic disciplines, including Indigenous studies, anthropology and history, will examine untold stories of coerced labor and peonage and the long-term impact of Indian slavery.  Panelists will discuss the legacies of Native American enslavement with Indigenous community leaders and cultural workers. The event will explore the different forms and complexity of human bondage that resulted in hybrid cultures, tangled economic practices, and intricate social relationships between the Spanish and Indigenous communities. Overall, this program seeks to give a comprehensive “first voice” to these hushed stories and living legacies.

The symposium is presented by the Smithsonian Latino Center, the National Museum of the American Indian, and the National Museum of African American History and Culture as part of the Smithsonian’s initiative, Our Shared Future: Reckoning with Our Racial Past.

The Other Slavery symposium is made possible, in part, through support from the One Smithsonian Symposia Fund through the Smithsonian Institution’s Office of Museums and Culture. Bank of America is proud to be the Founding Partner of Our Shared Future: Reckoning with Our Racial Past.

This event will be on demand starting at 12:01AM on September 24th and will remain on demand until September 27th.
