Black Caribs, Indigeneity, and Resistance in 18th Century St. Vincent2:30pm

02:30 PM - 04:00 PM
Storrs Campus UCHI Conference RoomTacuma Peters (Ph.D., U.C. Berkeley) is a recipient of the 2019 Woodrow Wilson Foundation Career Enhancement Fellowship and Assistant Professor in Political Theory and Constitutional Democracy
at James Madison College and in the Department of Philosophy at Michigan State University.
“"Black Caribs, Indigeneity, and Resistance in Eighteenth Century St. Vincent” examines the “Carib Wars” of the mid- to late-eighteenth century. It interprets the political thought and practices that led to Carib resistance to British claims to land and sovereignty in the wake of
the Seven Years’ War. Through an examination of the limited writings of Black Carib leaders, the strategies utilized to resist British colonialism, the history of European interpretations of
Carib polities, and the extant historiography on the two conflicts, Peters argues that St. Vincent after the Seven Years’ War provides a key site of inquiry into the processes of racialization and land dispossession that characterize settler colonialism. Peters concludes by addressing the problems that incomplete and colonial archives pose to historians of political thought and by
meditating on the relationship of Carib anti-colonialism to the concepts and practices of marronage and confederacy.
Darian Spearman, PhD Candidate in Philosophy, will serve as discussant.
