Description
An imaginative vision of London’s past crafted from the perspective of indigenous children, men and women who travelled there, willingly or otherwise, beginning in the sixteenth century. They included captives and diplomats, missionaries and shamans, poets and performers. In his tour of the indigenous presence in the metropolis, the author recovers the ways in which North American, New Zealand and Australian native peoples sought to challenge settler colonialism. Their stories and diverse experiences also illustrate how London learned to be a global, imperial city and how indigenous people were part of that process.
