    Tribal Peoples and Colonial Encounters in Scotland and America

    In 19th century paintings, the proud Indian warrior and the Scottish highland chief are portrayed in similar ways-colorful and wild, righteous and warlike, the last of their breeds. In 17th and 18th century accounts, they are both presented as barbarians, in need of English language,religion, and civilization. During the Seven Years’ War, the Cherokees and Highland troops were said to be “cousins.” By the 19th century, one could hear Cree, Mohawk, Cherokee, and Salish spoken with Gaelic accents.
