Write a note on enslavement of Native Indians in the newly established colonies of Carolinas. (5)
The colonies of the Carolina were established in 1600’s. The trade system was very effective in the colony that took place between the natives, the colonists and England. Due to the trade system, plantations were set up in the Carolina colonies and production of rice and indigo was started. Soon after the creation of the colony, the slavery of the Native Americans had started under the formation of the framework that was named as “Slave Codes”. The native American slaves were expected to hunt, while the African Slaves worked in the plantations. The slavery of Native Americans continued with the continuation of the trade. The price given to the native slaves was also lower than the Black slaves, because lots of native slaves had escaped. For solving the problem of escape native slaves, they were sent to West Indies where they could not escape. With the outbreak of Yamasee War in the 1715, the slavery of the Native Americans ended completely.
