From dj: "Existing side by side with Negro slavery Indian enslavement began in the colonies with the distribution and sale of war captives into a condition of servitude. Aided and abetted by French, English and Spanish interests engaged in conflict over territorial control in the New World the use of Indians in bondage progressed from that of servitude with limitation on the period of bondage to outright treatment as chattel property. Virtually all the colonies were involved.." Primary emphasis on England.
