What was an indentured survent?

Indentured servitude was a type of forced labor in early America. It was most prevalent in Jamestown and other early colonies. Basically, how it works is: Steve wants to go to America from the old world, but is too poor to pay for boat passage. Henry is rich and going to America, and tells Steve, "Hey, if you work for me for a few years (commonly about 4, later around 7 years) I'll pay for your passage to America." However, indentured servants would SELDOM, if ever, live out their contracts. For this reason, many people say the system of indentured servitude was the same as the institution of non-racial slavery, because the indentured servants worked for no pay for the rest of their lives. The system of indentured servitude started to collapse when servants started to outlive their contracts. It was replaced before long by a racial system of slavery brought to the present-day lower 48 states from the Caribbean.

How did indentured servitude and slavery arise in North America?

Indentured servitude and slavery arose in North America by the colonies/ colonists needed another source of labor since most Native Americans became sick and as a result died because they weren't immune to the diseases that the Europeans brought with them to America. The colonists, especially Spanish priest Bartolome de Las Casas came up with an idea of enslaving/ capturing Africans to America to do the work because they had an immunity to the British diseases. Over colonial time, the demands for slaves increased. Since their was very high death rates, which led to labor shortages, the colonists began using indentured servants [were servants that signed a contract to work for four to seven years for those who paid for their journey to America]. That is how indentured servitude and slavery arose in North America.

What is a debtor slave?

Context leads me to believe that a debtor slave is someone who is forced into slavery until he or she can pay off all of his or her debts. I am not familiar with the term, "debtor slave," but I suspect it is similar to if not actually is an indentured servant. Indentured servitude is a condition that existed that allowed those in debt to work as a personal servant or sort of employee to another person who sponsored them by paying off all or part of that person's debt. Indentured servitude has been illegal in most of the United States since the mid 1800's, with the exception of Louisiana, where it was still legal into the 1980's. This may or may not have changed by now.

Did the slaves know that they would be freed?

It depends on which slaves you are referring to, but in general, forced servitude tends to inflict a mentality of hopelessness on the victim, so unless the slavery was something like a lease agreement, or indentured service, most probably never thought they would experience freedom.
