My current research focuses on colonial raids to enslave Native Americans on Spanish missions in Paraguay and Florida in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. I am interested in how slaving societies, in São Paulo and South Carolina respectively, were created through the enslavement of those Natives and the implications on state and colonial development in both regions in the Atlantic. Some of my former research has focused on how the introduction of Euro-American patrilineal-property traditions challenged Creek matrilineages and identity at the turn of the nineteenth century.
