Group Description

Let's face it: American history textbooks were (and sometimes are still) full of lies, stereotypes and misconceptions in relation to the Native American Indian. Such books were written by the so-called victor - the white invader - who rewrote history to suit his own needs. It wasn't until the 1960's did the Native people begin to speak out.. telling their side of the story. Unfortunately, White Lies are still retold today and misconceptions held by those before us still hold tight to the American conscious. Knowledge is the key to changing such deep-seeded assumptions - and re-education is needed to correct the misinformation. I hope you will join me and read THE NATIVE TRUTH. Here we will explore the other side of the historical coin - from aboriginal slavery, treaty rights and land claims to cultural theft, reservation conditions, Wounded Knee and Christopher Columbus - giving voice to those stifled for hundreds of years.
