Kathryn H. Braund


My research focuses on the history of the Creek and Seminole Indians in the seventeenth through early nineteenth centuries, particularly the deerskin trade. I also have an interest in early trade and exploration and the environment of the Deep South Interior. I use a multi-disciplinary approach, employing the methods and tools of history, anthropology, ethnography, archaeology, and literary analysis. Major themes in my published works include economic interaction and trade, race and ethnicity, travel and scientific description of the landscape, conceptualization of geographical boundaries, and evolving ideas about personal and national identity. I am currently writing a history of the Red Stick War.
