British Era Trade in the Midwest

Author(s): Jessica Yann

Year: 2016


This paper investigates several common assumptions regarding the economic nature of trade interactions in the Midwest during the period from approximately 1760 to 1820. Using a resource dependency theory framework, this research analyzes archaeological and historical sources to demonstrate that these interactions were more nuanced, and more complex, than typically portrayed. It also demonstrates that these economic interactions were strongly intertwined with political decision making. Examining these interactions contextualizes the history of this region during this time, and allows for a better understanding of Native American and European dynamics.
