We've made it pretty clear that history has done an awful job of representing the persecution of Native Americans after European contact. Starting with the spread of smallpox and other diseases that killed an estimated 90 percent of the population to slavery, forced removals like the Trail of Tears and boarding schools.

Images like these that have been popping up on Facebook and other social media sites serve to remind us all what the original inhabitants of Turtle Island suffered through.
