Oregon and the Collapse of Illahee

U.S. Empire and the Transformation of an Indigenous World, 1792-1859

Gray H. Whaley

Publication Year: 2010

Whaley argues that the process of Oregon's founding is best understood as a contest between the British Empire and a nascent American one, with Oregon's Native people and their lands at the heart of the conflict. He identifies race, republicanism, liberal economics, and violence as the key ideological and practical components of American settler-colonialism. Native peoples faced capriciousness, demographic collapse, and attempted genocide, but they fought to preserve ###Illahee# even as external forces caused the collapse of their world. Whaley's analysis compellingly challenges standard accounts of the quintessential antebellum Promised Land.
