“Thus we observe that relations between Negroes and Indians have been of significance historically, through influencing on occasion the Indian relations of the United States government, and to a much larger extent biologically, through modifying the racial make-up of both the races and even, as some believe, creating a new race which might, perhaps, for want of better term, be called 'Aframerindian.' ”
Kenneth Wiggins Porter, “Notes Supplementary to ‘Relations between Negroes and Indians’ ”
in The Journal of Negro History XVIII (January, 1933, Number 1): 321.
