Indigenous Women and the Making of the Early Atlantic World: The Cape Colony and Surinam

Indigenous women acted as agents both for their societies, and in their own right, in the first interactions between Europeans and the communities bordering the Atlantic Ocean. My larger project is a book entitled Indigenous Women and the Making of the Early Atlantic World. The summer stipend would fund research for the second chapter, at the National Archives in The Hague, the Netherlands, in July and August 2003. I will investigate Dutch interaction with indigenous Khoisan women in the seventeenth-century Cape Colony, at the time of the first Dutch East India Company (VOC) settlement from 1652 until 1713. I will begin archival research also on the Dutch West India Company and indigenous women in seventeenth-century Surinam.
