During 1999 a major story in the news was the 'Orkney Homecoming'. The Orkney Homecoming was a celebration in Scotland which attracted a large number of visitors from all over the world, with a powerful contingent from the First Nations of northern Canada, claiming descent from Hudson Bay Company employees recruited in the Orkneys. Unfamiliar faces, but with incongruously familiar last names. A new bond of friendship between two very different peoples has clearly been forged. This event is merely the latest manifestation of a more ancient bond between two kindred peoples - the Scots and the Native Americans - linked forever by parallel histories (in which a bitter legacy of massacres, subjugation, forced removals and enforced acculteration have all had their part), an affinity of spirits, and a unique coincidence of destinies. This book seeks out to catalogue the many links which exist between the Scots and the Native Americans, placing special emphasis upon those interactions which have taken place on Scottish soil, and on those Native Americans who, swimming against the tide of mass emigrations in the opposite direction, have in the course of several centuries made their way to Scotland, for different reasons.
