How American History Erases Mass Murders Against Native Americans

How American History Erases Mass Murders Against Native AmericansWhen the media mouthpieces talk about a mass killing being the worst in our history, don’t forget about historical genocide of Native Americans.

Erasing them from history is a sure way to doom ourselves to repeat the same mistakes again.

When Columbus reached the indigenous people of the Caribbean in 1492, an era of colonization, slavery, murder, and exploitation of the indigenous inhabitants began.

The journals of Columbus and his men tell terrible tales of the things they did to the indigenous people they encountered.

These so-called civilized people chopped up the bodies of Natives people and fed them to their hunting dogs, Kidnapped and sold pre-teen girls in the sex trade, enslavement and seeing if one could slice through a Native with one stroke.

In the Island nations that Columbus conquered it is estimated that 3-5 million Indigenous people had disappeared due to illness and the brutality of their tactics, reported The Indigenous American.

Later, the campaign against Native people proceeded and spread throughout the western hemisphere. The resulting slaughter led by the “civilized” Europeans killed over 100 million people. In North America alone, it is estimated the 20-50 million people were lost in the brutal campaigns of Europeans in the Americas.

This huge part of American history is largely left out of the classroom in the U.S. in an attempt to remove it from history.

If people have not done their own research, they might even still believe the fairy tale version of Columbus as a hero that discovered a new land, someone who deserves a national holiday, rather than the historical Columbus-the mass murderer and slave trader.

The erasure of Native American genocide from the Classrooms and popular culture serves to erase the distasteful memory for the collective mind space. If you can make people forget, it’s as if you’re absolved of the crime.

While some of the modern massacres are terrible, are they really as bad as the genocide experienced by Native Americans?

We cannot forget what happened to them in the name of civilization, colonization, race, and religion.

These things need to be taught in schools. We cannot continue to pretend they did not happen and continue to pretend Columbus and his men were heroes.
