In the U.S. Constitution, the Three-Fifths Compromise is part of Article 1, Section 2, clause 3. It says:
Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.
This appears to say that Native Americans, like the kidnapped African slaves, were to be counted as three-fifths of a person.
Is this interpretation correct and was this how it was historically understood?
