Summary
Examines the origins and legacies of a captive exchange economy within and among native American and Euramerican communities throughout the Southwest Borderlands from the Spanish colonial era to the end of the nineteenth century, detailing a "slave system" in which victims symbolized social wealth, performed services for their masters, and produced material goods under the threat of violence, with slave and livestock raiding and trading among Apaches, Comanches, Kiowas, Navajos, Utes, and Spaniards providing labor resources, redistributing wealth, and fostering kin connections that integrated disparate groups even as these practices renewed cycles of violence and warfare
