The field of Atlantic history has grown substantially in recent years. With this growth, the focus of Atlantic history has broadened from comparative histories of the Americas to an all encompassing geographic space of interaction incorporating the Americas, Europe, Africa, and the Atlantic Ocean. Within the parameters of this Atlantic World, Atlantic historians have moved to broader narratives involving several genres (e.g. European empires, commodities, Atlantic slave trade, and piracy to name a few). As Atlantic history has blossomed, its development has fostered new perspectives and avenues of historical research not possible with individual histories. This thesis will demonstrate the value of studying Native Americans within the context of an Atlantic World through an analysis of the rebellions of Pontiac in North America (1763-1766) and Tupac Amaru in South America (1780-1781). Despite being separated by time and geographic space, the rebellions of Pontiac and Tupac Amaru were creations of an Atlantic World. Through narratives of both rebellions in an Atlantic World context, it will be seen how both rebellions were more existentially and ontologically similar than different. Leaders similarly manipulated the authority of majesty to carry on their rebellions, and both rebellions had comparable forms of nativism. Also, forces within the Atlantic World plausibly made rebels of Amaru's Rebellion aware of the events of Pontiac's Rebellion in North America along with other printed works which possibly influenced Amaru's Rebellion. Through this case study of Pontiac's and Tupac Amaru's Rebellions, the value of an Atlantic World perspective in Native American history becomes apparent.
