      The American Indian Genocide Museum has a vision to defeat prejudice
      and discrimination through education. In the beginning of American
      History a religious leader who claimed to speak for God gave all the
      lands west of the Azores and Cape Verde Islands to the King of Spain,
      if it wasn't already in the possession of some other Catholic King. This
      decree issued by Pope Alexander Vl, effective from Christmas Day
      1492 , is on display at the General Archive of the Indies in Seville,
      Spain.


      The bigotry and intolerance this decree created for Native Americans
      was realized when upon seeing the Tarawa Indians of the Bahamas,
      Columbus wrote, "They would make fine servants. With fifty men we
      could subjugate them and make them do whatever we want".
      The problem with dehumanizing people in order to take their land is,
      that the next step is to take their lives also. Genocide in the Americas is
      not an easy subject to address- not for any American.

      he purpose of this museum is to bring historical truth
      to light through the means of education using actual
      documentation of events that have transpired in the
      near extermination, and in some cases, the total
      extermination of native tribes and cultures. It will be a
      memorial to the victims of ethnic cleansing. Racism,
      discrimination and injustice will be addressed with the
      purpose of promoting public awareness that these
      elements of genocide which existed in the past,
      continue to exist today. A further purpose of the
      museum will be to address prejudice which is
      generated toward native peoples through biased
      reporting of history. The goal of influencing authors of
      school textbooks with irrefutable documentation shall
      be of major importance. A library and microfilm
      archive will be available. The visual use of art,
      sculpture and film will create a memorable learning
      experience.
