THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE
Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.
I hate this country.
What I learned from this video:
- 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
- Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
- Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
- The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
- There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies
- In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
- Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
- "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
- California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”
The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)
In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites
This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.
Is this real? Shouldn’t there be ruins of the cities and aquaducts?
if ur first question regarding the native american genocide is “is this real?” you really should not be following my blog
I’m not doubting the genocide or government policies against Native Americans. What I meant was the cities thing. Like all the rest is blatant fact that the westerners were fucking evil, but how is the city thing real? Like did the colonists destroy the cities? This video seems mostly factual but it also seems really sensationalized.
look what I found on pinterest http://www.pinterest.com/svelteheat/maya-more-architecture/
They tried it.

Let that one sink in. Recently in Canada they discovered a settlement that was built, that is the size of Manhattan. http://www.livescience.com/21494-ancient-mantle-site-discovered.html
"It’s the largest, most complex, cosmopolitan village of its time," said Williamson, also of the University of Toronto, in an interview with LiveScience. "All of the archaeologists, basically, when they see Mantle, they’re just utterly stunned."
Also a reminder that all the hunting and residential school shit happened in Canada too, we just used a lot more small pox diseased blankets to wipe out villages. That’s not even touching on giving first nations “land certificates” then tricking them into selling them for alcohol which we got them addicted to, after never explaining what that paper meant.
Also our last residential school closed in 1996. And there is currently a failure to inquire into the vast numbers of missing first nations women. Many First Nations communities in Canada do not have clean drinking water. This is not just a shame of the past. It is a problem of the present.
