Professor Wayne Lee of UNC-Chapel Hill will discuss his new publication from University of North Carolina Press, “The Cutting-Off Way: Indigenous Warfare in Eastern North America, 1500–1800,” which recasts Indigenous warfare in a framework of the lived realities of Native people rather than with regard to European and settler military strategies and practices.
