Nobility Lost

This chapter argues that Native peoples nurtured their own memories of the Seven Years’ War and engaged with the war’s legacy in the same way that they interpreted, rejected, or adapted to changing environments, politics, and people—on their own terms. Their perspectives, as well as the continued presence of former French colonists, open up a different way of looking at French engagements in North America after the Seven Years’ War. The chapter then returns to Lorimier, lost son of Bougainville and scion of France’s North American empire in order to reconfigure spatial and temporal boundaries to reflect the Indian–French prism and resolve the legacy of French North America and France’s Seven Years’ War in a Native perspective.

Keywords:   Seven Years’ War, Native peoples, France, Lorimier, Bougainville
