An Archaeology of Indian Removal: Mapping the Chickasaw Experience

Dr. Terrance Weik is a historical archaeologist who takes an anthropological, diaspora approach to Africans in the Americas. While conducting his field work at Strawberry Plains, a South Carolina plantation, he discovered the potential for beginning a new phase of research on African and Native American interactions. His current project is examining indigenous Chickasaw slaveholding, community building, African agency, frontier entrepreneurship, and intercultural engagements. The latest dimension to this project involves the parallels between African diasporic displacement and “Indian Removal.”
