8 Big Lies History Books Tell About Natives

Vincent Schilling

History books written by non-Natives don't share the truth when it comes to Natives.

Do history books written by white folks tell the truth about Natives? We think not. Here are just some of the lies they tell.

Columbus NEVER landed in the Upper 48—Ever

Every year across the country’s countless elementary school students recite: “In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue” and many perform a play about him discovering Indians in America. The thing is Columbus never landed in what would become the United States, he actually landed in the Caribbean.

Basically Everything About Pocahontas

Pocahontas was about 8 years old when John Smith arrived, and was later married to another young Indian warrior. She also had a child that was given away before she married John Rolfe.

Sorry Disney, and many incorrectly written textbooks, Pocahontas never fell in love with John Smith. According to tribal oral histories as well as The True Story of Pocahontas by members of the Mattaponi Tribe, Pocahontas’ original young Native husband was killed and Pocahontas’ newborn was given to relatives before she was forced into captivity at about 15 or 16 years of age.

The First Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was named after an entire tribe’s massacre—not a peaceful meal between pilgrims and Indians.

In 1621, Wampanoag Indians investigated gun and cannon fire at a Pilgrim settlement to see them celebrating a successful harvest. The Indians—all male warriors, were fed as a gesture of peace. The act was not repeated annually.

In 1636, when a murdered man was discovered in a boat in Plymouth, English Major John Mason collected his soldiers and killed and burned down the wigwams of all the neighboring Pequot Indians who were blamed for the murder.

The following day, Plymouth Governor William Bradford applauded the massacre of the 400 Indians, including the women and children. The Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, William Newell, proclaimed: “From that day forth, shall be a day of celebration and thanks giving for subduing the Pequots.” For the next 100 years, every Thanksgiving Day ordained by a governor was in honor of the bloody victory, thanking God that the battle had been won.

What is a Redskin?

“It was only five generations ago that a white man could get money for one of my grandfather’s scalps,” wrote 1491’s comedian Dallas Goldtooth on Facebook. “At this time… it was ‘Redskin’ that was used to describe us.”

In his post, Goldtooth also included a newspaper clipping from after the U.S. Dakota Wars of 1862: “The state reward for dead Indians has been increased to $200 for every red-skin sent to Purgatory.”

Lincoln Ordered a Mass Execution

In the fall of 1862, Native tribes in Minnesota waged war on white settlers out of frustration from starvation, mistreatment and harsh conditions. After soldiers captured over 300 Indians, President Abraham Lincoln approved the largest mass execution in U.S. history on 38 Dakota men. On the day of their hanging, an estimated 4,000 spectators watched them hung. Their bodies were later taken and used as medical cadavers.

Hitler Studied Reservations

There are many accounts of the Nazis and Hitler studying Indian reservations for guidance in planning encampments for the Jewish. Perhaps Lia Mandelbaum says it best in her article found in the Jewish Journal entitled “Hitler’s Inspiration and Guide: The Native American Holocaust.”

From 1863 to 1868, the U.S. military persecuted and imprisoned 9,500 Navajo (the Diné) and 500 Mescalero Apache (the N’de). Living under armed guards, in holes in the ground, with extremely scarce rations, it is no wonder that more than 3,500 Navajo and Mescalero Apache men, women, and children died while in the concentration camp.

During the film I learned about something that shook me to my core that I had not heard before. I learned that the genocidal mentality and actions of the U.S. policy makers would find similar expression years later when the Nazis, under Hitler, studied the plans of Bosque Redondo to design the concentration camps for Jews.

There Are 567 Federally Recognized Tribes in the U.S.

When I was a student in high school, I learned that George Washington saw Indians in Virginia and possibly heard once or twice about the Cherokee Trail of Tears. But in 18 years of public school (and a few of private Catholic School)—not once did I learn about the multitude of tribes, languages or cultures involved in this country. NOT ONCE.

Unwritten History of African Americans and Natives

Dr. Arica L. Coleman is the assistant professor of Black American Studies at the University of Delaware. She is African American and Native American (Rappahannock). Due to her ancestry, she has done a lot of thinking about the relations and interactions of blacks, Indians and whites on the East Coast, primarily in Virginia.

According to Coleman, who turned her Ph.D. dissertation into a book titled That the Blood Stay Pure, there was Indian slavery in Virginia.

“The first slaves in the Americas were Native American and this business that the Native Americans died off as a result of disease and war [is inaccurate]—those were not the only reasons for their demise, there was the Indian slave trade, which is something we do not discuss a lot,” she writes.

Coleman also writes about Walter Plecker, a man who once worked as the first registrar of Virginia’s Bureau of Vital Records. A man who literally changed races in Virginia’s birth records. His actions have been coined as “pencil genocide.”

RELATED: Exploring the Political Exploitation of Blood Quantum in the U.S.

Similarly, William Loren Katz, the author of Black Indians has written how entire cities of blacks and Indians came together as a strong force against European settlers including huge factions of black Seminoles who created nearly impenetrable forces against those soldiers foolish enough to try and break into Florida, and suffered miserable defeats over several years.

History is writen by the victors. Also by the victors media which is controlled by jews. Yes Hitler did indeed study the US mistreatment of the tribes but in order to find out HOW TO NOT TREAT THE JEWS. The jews were the vast majprity of communists in the eorld at the time. There was a grand toral of 271,803 dead at all camps combined of which LESS THAN 70,000 were jews....there was no plan of genocide nor is there any proof that that the holohoax even occured.. the jews cried holohoax in 1917 and recieved monetary comp for it. Money which was funneled to europe and used to fund COMMUNISM....the comp from ww2s holohoax is ised to fund isreals land geabbing genocidal tactics. Hitler who had an IQ of 186 was one of the smartest men in the world. All the all-lies leadership had IQs lESS THAN 100....the VAST MAJORITY OF NSDAP OFFICIALS WERE OVER 120.... THERE IS NO PROOF OF THE HOLOHOAX...plus the so called "native" americans stole the lands from PROTO EUROPEANS.

False. ​ There are pictures, buildings, archeological remnants of Native Americans, DNA OF THEIR SKELETONS IN THE GROUND FOR TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS, going all the way back to pre Clovis culture that has nothing to do with Europeans, FROM NORTH TO CENTRAL TO SOUTH AMERICA irregardless of the few Arab, Chinese, African or European, explorers who showed up here from time to time, on this land OF NORTH, CENTRAL, AND SOUTH AMERICA. They were here before you Europeans or even your 'Fictional' Proto Europeans. There was no mass of proto Europeans here. No amount of lies and fakery on your behalf will change that. DNA has refuted your lies, thereby embarrassing you as another grifter trying to FALSIFY and project what WHITE America did to the Natives. Not going to work. People are starting to figure you people out for your lies that you peddle built from your WHITE SOCIAL DARWINISM religion that began 'right here' in America WITH EUROPEANS in the last 500 years, of dehumanizing everyone who is not part of your Euro group, in order to take away THEIR GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS. People like you try to build up this false image of white people as gods. Your liars. Your not god's at all. Everything you learned in the RENAISSANCE you learned from the Arabs, by stealing their scientific discoveries and calling it your own. The very same Arabs America and Europe are trying to kill today just like they did the Natives of America. Ingrates are what you Europeans are, you would have been nowhere were it not for others. You 'do not' have the right to erase the Natives from their existence being here before anyone else. Nor do you get to 'claim ownership' of this land from the Natives or their culture, or whatever they have done. You exposed yourself as another one of the liars.

Then also Mohammed the false prophet in Quran says he is white and even made a law saying if anyone says he is black they will be executed. So read it is in Islamic writings. So Arabs think they are white evidently also. So really I don't care he that own black slaves and called a black man the satan.

Your writing screams out your insecurity. It's pretty obvious. If that's not what you intended, then perhaps, keep your irrational projections of your own insecurities under wraps, until you've got them figured out. Less embarrassing that way.

If Hitler was so smart, why did he make so many incredibly stupid military decisions?
His megalomania and paranoia were a big part of the Nazis losing that war.
Notice I said the Nazis. Not all Germans went along with them, not at all.
And not all contemporary whites go along with your excrement, either.
And if there is no proof for the "HOLOHOAX" /s, then why was someone like Sophie Scholl prepared to die to oppose the Nazi regime?
The hell with you! I'm proud of my Germanic ancestry, and I admire Germany for how they turned their nation around post-WW2.
And I'm proud of my friends for their ancestry. If we don't respect each other, how can we respect ourselves?
But for you, I have no respect. I utterly oppose those like you who have chosen to wallow in filth.

You do know that supposed "survivors" stories are never corroborated by other "survivors" , sophie school is the stereotypical communist so of course she would push a false narrative dreamt up by the jew ILYA EHRENBERG in the soviet union.... and there is LITERALLY NO PROOF OF THE HOLOHOAX.. that's why it is the ONLY EVENT IN HISTORY WHICH IS LEGALLY ENFORCED...

In fact according to Jewish sources such as the New York Times and Daily News the western European Jewish population rose by anywhere from 1.25 to 2.3 million during HITLERS REIGN..

also there existed 2.3 million Jewish in all of German occupied lands throughout WW2 yet 3.5 million collected survivor benefits

"Turned their nation around post WW2" SO you mean how they allowed their country to be partitioned, over ruled by foreign powers and be subservient to foreign economies..... you really need to discard that outdated 1950s history education..... Germany in 1933 to 1945 was the richest country ever with GDP that was 4x higher than the US. And had unemployment. They had their own economy based upon labor. In fact many of the leaders of the foreign powers of the US, UK, France and Russia all made admissions how better Germany was with Hitler and how the world colluded against her due to the economic plans (Action Reinhardt which was named after Oscar Reinhardt NOT Reinhardt Heydrich) she had which revitalized her...

Germany post 1945 is a sad sad place where the citizens have less rights than citizens of France.... hell Hitler also gave ALL TAX PAYING CITIZENS IF GERMANY THEIR GUN RIGHTS ( WHICH WERE REVOKED BY THE JEWISH WEIMAR REPUBLIC) BACK....in fact the biggest lie is that the SS was solely charged with murder yet the SS and WAFFEN SS were both FOUNDED BY JEWS AND HAD NO GEWER THAN 125,000 JEWS IN ITS ORDER OF BATTLE...in fact Reichsführer #s 1-3 and 5 were ALL FULL JEWS, 1ST MISCHLINGS OR 2ND MISCHLINGS.

Anne franks diary is a post war construct.

In fact if one does actual research they will find such evidence which refutes the fraudocaust such as LETTERS GROM HIMMLERAND THE HEAD OF THE GESTAPO WHICH INSTRUCT THAT JEWS ARE TO BE LEFT ALONE AND NOT HARASSED, HOW PEOPLE ARE NEVER TO BE THREATENED WITH INCARCERATION IN CONCENTRATION CAMPS. HOW CAMP INMATES ARE TO SLEEP 8 HOURS, GET A HEARTY MEAL THEN DO 8 HRS PAID LABOR AT 14Rm/Hr FOLLOWED BY YET ANOTHER HEARTY MEAL AND GET 8 HRS REST. YES THE JEWS WERE PAID... and the photos are pathetically created forgeries and are exceedingly obvious esp with shadow and light play and settings......there are literally NO GENUINE PHOTOS which support the soviet pushed holohoax narrative.......there are pics of the theatres, canteens, hospitals, schools, infirmaries, day care centres, soccer fields.....that were provided for the inmates and the majority of the 70,000 jews who died WERE COMMUNISTS....Perhaps the biggest piece of evidence that refutes the holohoax narrative is the findings of Dr. Robert. P. Larsen whom did no fewer than 200 autopsies at every single concentration camp after WW2 and this man who was the WORLDS LEADING FORENSIC EXPERT stated in his post war memoirs and findings (which were banned from the largely Jewish Nuremberg tribunals (3600 out of 4000 officials in this illegal post de-facto case were Jewish which is unconstitutional as it is a predisposition courtroom and biased. And the interrogators bragged about using gruesome torture techniques to extract the demanded confess
Ions from the Germans) " That it is in the ethical and professional opinions of myself and of my peers that there is absolutely no proof to support the allegations leveled against the leadership of the Third Reich and against the Germans themselves, these conclusions were arrived upon only after the completion of over 27,000 autopsies which revealed no trace of any abused, torture, forced labor or enforced starvation and any starvation was in fact caused and or exacerbated by through the criminal actions of the U.S.A.A.F and R.A.F which indiscriminately targeted civilians children, female and elderly alike, the centres of food and clothing production and the railways themselves. The camps of Auschwitz, Bergen Belden, Buchenvald amongst others indeed displayed overwhelming evidence of being subject to numerous bombing raids which no doubt ballooned the number of deceased in said camps. During the course of my work I have only discovered 65,486 bodies which had a golden start on their garments, no evidence of chemicals or mass Graves has ever been found thus it is in my opinion that the Germans be vindicated of this criminal misdoing as I have stated above there is absolutely NO PROOF that Germany ever partook in any program to exterminate peoples".. also the post war career of Paul Rassinier who unlike many of the prominent Jewish holohiax profiteers actually spent the entire war in over 10 of the concentration camps.. till his dying day he fought to vindicate Germany of the false allegations thrown upon her. He was a French communist who was incarcerated along with some of his co conspirators some of whom were in fa t Jewish and many of which had survived the war.. he proves without reasonable doubt in his innumerable works that the holohoax is a farce. And that there was absolutely no plan or emplaced program to exterminate Europe's jews and that he never experienced and inhumane conditions or treatment nor did he ever witness any actions against jews.

Over 100,000 camp inmates including 22,486 jews were RELEASED FROM THE CONCENTRATION VAMPS THROUGHOUT WW2 AFTER COMPLETION OF THEIR SENTENCES

As a European, German and NOT communist, I just want to say you are totaly ignorant about our history. Please shut up and study before you write some more shit. My father as he was 18 was as stupid as to enlist into the SS. He was ashamed of his terrible mistake all his life long and told me the truth about that tragedy. It is terrible to see people like you walk over this wonderful planet.

The only ones ignorant of reality are you fools....there is ABSOLUTELY NO PROOF that Germany ever killed jews and men like Patton, Charles. P. Larsen and some jews attested to that... in fact ALL scientific and forensic findings were excluded from admission at the Nuremberg kangaroo courses which were 100% unconstitutional as dead victims were alive and present, the judge was prejudiced and the of the 4000 personell of the courts over 3600 were jews. None of the findings were allowed as they all denied and or refuted the claims.... the camps were not secret their opening was a public event, red cross was stationed at EVERY SINGLE CAMP BY REICHS LAW, the public and or tourists were allowed to tour every camp. There are no aerial recon photos which show any signs of criminal activity, by himmlers law ALL personell were treated fairly, fed 2 substantial meals a day and worked 8hrs, slept 8hrs, and had 8hrs of RandR. that document is accessible online. Also camp personally who abused inmates were reprimanded and thrown into prison. The SS were not able to go out and kill people at will, krystalknacht has been proven to have been instigated by a communist, operation Reinhardt has nothing to do with jews or Reinhardt Heydrich but EVERYTHING to do with the economy and OSCAR REINHARDT, the wansee conference was about the borders of the Reich and had nothing to do with jews..... my great grandfather was a general field Marshall who had unlimited access. Also I've spoken to US vets who served in the 3rd army, 101st and 82nd who all stated in private that THEY SAW ABSOLUTELY NO TRACE OF ANY MURDERS OR CRIMES COMMITTED BY GERMANY BUT WERE ORDERED TO MAINTAIN THAT IT HAPPENED

Like I've stated the release of over 22 thousand jews from the camps refutes the long held lie that jews were exterminated.Jewish population of western Europe INCREASED BY MIRE THAN 1.25 MILLION FROM 1933 TO 1945. THE ONLY GREAT DECREASE IN JEWISH POPULATION CAME ABOUT IN 1946. these figures are supported by the New York times, daily news, and other news papers which are owned by jews themselves. And many if the jews who cried wolf have been exposed as fraudsters as they were paid huge sums of money in form of "reparations"

You said white settlers are going to, lie about natives Americans, what about Native American lying about white settlers. See your onesidedness while claiming others are onesided.

I disagree you're just as messed up as European settlers, and sinners and have done just as much evil as we have and your bias. We are all sinners I am tired of this self-righteousness so you lost and it was perhaps fate. So the Lord Yeshua the Messiah died for our sins and rose from the dead to saved us and so we can receive remission for sins and be reconciled to God.

Then I honestly don't believe European settlers were victimizing only and the native Americans were the victims all the time. The Native Americans lost the wars the US government defeated them. I am sick of saying native American what is their language called that is what I will call them.

Then the odd thing is you probably think all Native Americans are the same peoples. If they have a different language group they are not the same people. So if Cherokee language is different from Najavo while Najovo is the same language group as Apache and is not the same a Cherokee they are different peoples. I mean Germanic peoples are not the same as Celts or Gaelic and Brythonic peoples. Like Old Norse is Germanic, Irish is Gaelic different peoples.

Hrolfr27
Hrolfr27

Well, I forget that Europeans are mixed up because other tribes conquered each other. Then they just intermarried and created whole new languages from the merging of them. Then to claim that Europeans didn't intermingle with Native peoples is against human nature, I don't mean the sinful kind I mean the whole man falls for woman thing even foreign women. So that both two peoples can't love each other seems like segregation and racism really. Well, it is known that Pochantas was with Rolfe (Hroulfr, HrodUlf (famous(or renown) wolf)). So it can't be that all intermarriages are so-called rapes because I can tell you men go to foreign land and fall for foreign women all the time even if others think it is wrong. Like eastern Cherokees and some Lumbees case in point.

God bless you and sorry if I seem harsh Yeshua did die for us because we are all sinners and no one is better than no one.

Also true
Native Americans held slaves, mutilated and tortured there enemies, robbed raped and killed routinely. Also interesting that Native Americans also bought and sold African Slaves
My point is that brutality in the Indian Culture existed well before any white man contacted them. And during the Indian Wars atrocities were committed by both whites and Native Americans
