Summary
  • In New Worlds for All, Calloway explores the unique & vibrant new cultures that Indians & Europeans forged together in early America. The process, Calloway writes, lasted longer than the United States has existed as a nation. During that time, most of America was still "Indian country," & even in areas of European settlement, Indians and Europeans remained a part of each other's daily lives: living, working, worshiping, traveling, & trading together - as well as fearing, avoiding, despising, & killing one another
  • Ranging across the continent & over 300 years, New Worlds for All describes encounters between Spanish conquistadors and Zuni warriors, Huron shamans & French Jesuit missionaries, English merchants & Montagnais traders. Calloway's discussion of conflict & cooperation includes the use of natural resources & shared knowledge about trail networks, herbal medicines, metal tools, & weapons. He depicts the European emulation of Indian military tactics, the varied responses of Indian societies to Christianity, attempts made on all sides to learn the languages and customs of the other, and the intermingling of peoples at the fringes of competing cultures - through captivity & adoption, attempts to escape one's own society & embrace another, or intermarriage. The New World, Calloway concludes, brought new identities for all, as Indian & European cultures combined to create a uniquely American identity
