Covered with Night: A Story of Murder and Indigenous Justice in Early America Online
Professor Nicole Eustace of New York University will share work from her book Covered with Night, the tale of a murderous attack by settler colonists from Pennsylvania against a Seneca hunter in the winter of 1722; the resulting cross-cultural debates about the nature of true justice; and the eventual creation of a treaty agreement at Albany, NY in September of that year that still stands today, the oldest continuously recognized Indigenous treaty in Anglo-American law.
Dr. Nicole Eustace is the Julius Silver Professor of History at New York University where she also directs the Atlantic History Workshop. The author of multiple books and articles on early American history, she received a Pulitzer Prize for Covered with Night in 2022.
