Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses indigenous spatiality. It studies the way that this was often constructed, in contrast to a presumed British spatiality. It also tries to mark the sense that indigenous populations resisted colonial rule and tried to manage and restrict colonists, and that it is this resistance that makes its presence felt in the accounts of the colonists. This chapter also examines cannibalism and the seclusion of indigenous women.

Keywords: indigenous spatiality; British spatiality; colonial rule; colonists' accounts; cannibalism; seclusion; indigenous women
