The biggest genocide in human history didn't occur in Nazi Germany but on American soil.
Almost 100 million Native Americans were slaughtered and lost their land.
What effect did the influx of millions of Europeans, many supposedly Christian, have on the Native Americans?
Their land, often considered sacred by Native Americans, was systematically taken by force, by trickery, or by unfulfilled treaties.
“How the West was won.” Hollywood’s films showed white settlers moving across the American plains and mountains, with John Wayne-type soldiers, cowboys, and settlers battling the fierce, savage, tomahawk-wielding Indians.
While the white man was looking for land and gold, some of Christendom’s priests and preachers were supposedly saving souls.
How does that history look from the standpoint of the original inhabitants, the native people of America? With the arrival of Europeans, Indians “were forced to cope with the introduction into their environment of the most rapacious predator they had ever faced: white European invaders,”
And no it wasn't God's plan.
