Q3: For many of us, the story of the Revolutions in Period 5 (1750-1900) focuses on people of European descent. How can we challenge that pattern and foreground peoples of African and indigenous heritage?

A3: the most obvious way is to make Haïti an integral part of the AoR, but another important theme IMO is that of Black Loyalists in the AmRev and their resettlement in Nova Scotia and later Sierra Leone—the Black Loyalists complicate the emancipatory narrative of the AmRev 1/

We can also tell the story of 7Yr War/AmRev/1812 with Indigenous peoples at the center—what do these stories mean for the autonomy of First Nations/Native Americans? How does increasing settler self-government affect Indigenous peoples? 2/

I also heard a paper at on Indigenous royalism during LAm wars of independence—poor Indigenous people didn’t see rich white liberals as their champions and tended to fight for the monarchy, which again complicates our story of liberation in AoR 3/

In Settler Colonialism ep of a panelist (sorry, can't tell if it was you) explained that settlers rhetorically erased indigenous people before displacing many demographically. We to need consciously avoid replicating this in our classes

I don’t recall if it was me in the recording but it could have been; I discuss the erasure of the indigenous in my dissertation. And I agree, we should actively avoid doing this erasure when we talk about independence struggles in settler colonies!
