Lpez: The Four C's Americans (Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, & Creek)

In observing this yearís Thanksgiving Day and last monthís Columbus Day, itís the perfect time to reexamine the tradition where these two holidays primarily involve our European ancestors and their declared ďdiscoveryĒ of America.

Alas, students are taught that faulty assertion in classrooms across the U.S. Expectedly, the general public is conditioned to believe it. Thatís not surprising, since U.S. mainstream history relies on the Age of Discovery (1500s-1700s), which in itself is a purely European history era.

The article below briefly summarizes how that colonialism mentality affected indigenous inhabitants of the Southeast and surrounding area. Hopefully, it will help readers realize why the European-centered focus is unjust.

In truth, nomadic humans crossed over frozen Beringia many thousands of years ago and were first to set foot in America. More importantly, their descendants still live here today. That is, America didnít need discovering. To say otherwise is wrong.

1. This is such important knowledge

It is criminal that it is not taught in our public schools at large!

Thank you - bookmarking!
