Amer Indian/Native Amer. Ethos project

Hi Everyone,
I'm working on a project where one American Indian ethos contributor has
had to pull out due to excessive commitments, so I'm hoping you or someone
you know can help.

James Baumlin and I are editing an encyclopedic-like text about ethos. As
you may know Jim is well known for his ethos work going back over 30 years.
The book will be in three parts. One is the Western tradition section and
focus on classical and post-classical rhetoric. The second one focuses on
non-Western ethos. And the third includes alternative ethos.

Call For Panel-- Marine Histories of Native America- Panel Proposal, Western History Association Annual Conference 2018

Washing the Dust Off Indigenous Sovereignty: Marine Histories of Native America- Panel Proposal, Western History Association Annual Conference 2018

Until recently, historical scholarship has failed to appreciate the Indigenous peoples of North America as anything other than land-bound societies, treating maritime history as the realm of European empires and ignoring the deep relationships between Native American groups and the waterways of the continent. 

Query Griffe- definition

Dear Members,

 A question for this group.  In your experience, how would you define the racial term "griffe"?  In the18th and 19th century primary sources I have reviewed it is apparent that it is a mixture of American Indian and African. However, a colleague has argued that it was also widely used to mean black mixture that did not include any American Indian.  Obviously, context is important whenever these terms were being used, but I wanted to get feedback from this group as to any insight or experience you may have had while examining primary sources.


DEADLINE APPROACHING: CFP The Many 14th Amendments

The U.S. Civil War from 1861-1865 resulted in a forging of a second constitution that in time transformed the structures of American governance. With the passage of the Fourteenth Amendment, the nation recast the relationship between the state and subordinated people. This revolutionary amendment created a national citizenship, set terms for southern states to reenter the union, codified new powers for the federal government, and spurred an enduring struggle for due process and equality under law that continues until today. The Fourteenth Amendment has no single legacy.
