After Columbus: The Smithsonian Chronicle of the North American Indians

After Columbus: The Smithsonian Chronicle of the North American Indians. Although the quincentenary of Columbus's arrival in this hemisphere all seems a thing of the past now, the celebration of what was essentially the eradication of their culture incensed the American Indians. This exquisitely illustrated overview of North American Indian life sets out to describe what life on this continent was like before the arrival of the European conquerors

Herman J. Viola is a longstanding author, educator, and curator. I particularly enjoyed the manner in which Viola and his contributors used ironic humor to educate readers and put issues and situations in context. A former director at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, he was the driving force in founding the museum’s National Anthropological Archives, which kept the first Native American records.

If you want the same old rant on Why The White Race Is Evil and Ruined America, buy this book. Otherwise go to someone who writes in a balanced manner, like Stephen Ambrose. CRAZY HORSE AND CUSTER is a great place to start. The only thing I liked about this book was the photographs. Otherwise it was predictable and a total yawn.

This is a fair report on the state of affairs if Native Americans 500 years after Columbus. In the earliest days of Europeans, the French, the English and the Spanish exploration and settlement in the New World, Native American lives changed by whiteman conquest, trade, epidemics, horse and guns. Their land and livelihood were pushed aside by the Manifest Destiny. This book is composed of 3 parts, namely, Encounter, Inheritance Lost and Fighting for Rights, with ample pictures and text. With 500 years being compressed into a little bite over 250 pages, this book only highlight the major events along the history timeline. The famous Indian saying is true: we used to have land and they have the Bible. And now, we have the Bible and they have the land. Ben Franklin paid the Iroquois Confederacy a compliment in 1754: it is hard to believe that the 13 American colonies could not agree to a polictical union when "Six Nations of ignorant savages" had formed one. (P.91) Between 1880 and WW I, having defeated Native americans militaril, US government tried to defeat them politically, economically, and spiritually. (P.187) This book also talks about Modoc War, Wounded Knee and Ishi.
The last paragraph raises important question: It would be sad if these great people, whose ancestors welcomed the first visitors to the New World 500 years ago, ofte with warmth and friendship, were to be lost to the American experience, in greeting the newcomers, Indians launched a tradition that has become the hallmark of US: this land continues to welcome immigrants from all over the world. (P.278).
In the annual Thanksgiving Dinner, let us celebrate the goodwill and friendship of Native Americans who welcome and support the newcomers. Let us educate ourselves what Native Americans endure and survive and what their great contributions to US and the world! Over half of State names and many cities came from Native americans. Edible plants of food domesticated by Native Americans have become major staples around the world, namely corn (maize), potato, sweet potato, peanut, squash and pumpkin, tomato, papaya, avocado, pineapple, guava, chilli peppers, chocolate (cacao) and many different kind of beans.
This is an important chapter in American history for every American.
