“considering the impact of colonization on American Indians,” before the pilgrims came to the New World, Indians were killing each other and raping the women. When the pilgrims reached the New World, the Indians were killing each other and raping the women. After the pilgrims reached the New World the Indians were killing each other and raping the women.

The Indians weren’t angels, they were just like any other nation, killing their neighbors and their enemies. I don’t understand why people don’t get this. Every country was founded on bloodshed, EVERY COUNTRY!

Although I disagree with your views, I don’t disagree with your right to state them. Try that in Cuba or Iraq or North Korea.

Happy Thanksgiving.
