Indian genocide        California

 

 

The state

of sunshine and pleasure

is drenched

in the blood of Indians,

the victims of mass killings.

 

These peaked between 1846,

when Americans conquered

California from Mexico,

and 1873,

when they snuffed out

the last group resistance

by natives in the state.

 

The slaughter

of California’s Indians

was rapid and thorough

even by the grim standards

prevailing elsewhere

in North America.

 

Before 1846,

California’s native peoples

suffered great losses

from diseases

and dispossession.

 

But Spanish colonizers

and their Mexican successors

wanted to preserve Indians

as mission inmates

or as cheap and dependent

farm labor.

 

The American newcomers,

however,

came by the thousands

and treated natives

as menaces best destroyed,

the sooner the better.

 

Lacking firearms,

subdivided

into many distinct groups,

and greatly outnumbered

by 1852,

the California natives were

more vulnerable to attack

than Indians elsewhere.

 

As Benjamin Madley writes

in “An American Genocide,”

by 1873,

roaming bands

of Indian-killers

played a major role

in reducing native numbers

by more than 80 percent.

Off-reservation boarding schools

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The federal government

began sending American Indians

to off-reservation

boarding schools in the 1870s,

when the United States

was still at war with Indians.

 

An Army officer,

Richard Pratt,

founded the first

of these schools.

 

He based it

on an education program

he had developed

in an Indian prison.

 

He described his philosophy

in a speech he gave in 1892.

 

"A great general has said

that the only good Indian

is a dead one," Pratt said.

 

"In a sense,

I agree with the sentiment,

but only in this:

that all the Indian there is

in the race should be dead.

Kill the Indian in him,

and save the man."

Sand Creek Massacre        Eads, Colo.

 

 

In 1864,

Col. John Chivington

led a group of soldiers

in an attack on

a Cheyenne and Arapaho village.

 

After attempting

to make peace,

Cheyenne Chief Black Kettle

had been ordered

by the U.S. Army

to camp along

the banks of Sand Creek

and fly an American flag,

but this did not protect them

from Colonel Chivington’s

attack.

Edward S. Curtis's

The North American Indian

 

 

The North American Indian

by Edward S. Curtis

is one of the most significant

and controversial representations

of traditional American Indian culture

ever produced.

 

Issued in a limited edition

from 1907-1930,

the publication continues

to exert a major influence

on the image of Indians

in popular culture.

 

Curtis said

he wanted to document

"the old time Indian, his dress,

his ceremonies, his life

and manners."

 

In over 2000 photogravure

plates and narrative,

Curtis portrayed

the traditional customs

and lifeways of eighty Indian tribes.

History of the American West

 

Photographs        1860-1920

 

 

Over 30,000 photographs,

drawn from the holding

of the Western History

and Genealogy Department

at Denver Public Library,

illuminate many aspects

of the history

of the American West.

 

Most of the photographs

were taken

between 1860 and 1920.

 

They illustrate

Colorado towns and landscape,

document the place of mining

in the history of Colorado and the West,

and show the lives of Native Americans

from more than forty tribes living west

of the Mississippi River.

1779

 

The American Revolution

and Native Americans

 

 

Narratives of atrocity

were themselves weapons of war,

and “both sides recognized

the power of print media,”

Hoock points out.

 

The Patriots’

near monopoly

on American printing presses

meant that reports

of British and Hessian cruelty

spread and survived

disproportionately.

 

But Patriots, too,

engaged in decidedly

irregular warfare,

especially with Britain’s

native allies.

 

Hoock narrates

the brutal

“campaign of terror”

Gen. John Sullivan

waged in Iroquoia

during the summer of 1779,

a scorched-earth march

involving one-third

of the total Continental

fighting force.

 

George Washington

himself

planned the campaign,

telling Sullivan to pursue

“the total destruction

and devastation

of their settlements

and the capture

of as many prisoners

of every age and sex

as possible.

It will be essential

to ruin their crops

now in the ground

and prevent

their planting more,”

wrote the Patriots’

supreme commander,

whom the Seneca

nicknamed

Town Destroyer.

 

Sullivan followed

Washington’s orders;

his men put at least

41 Indian towns

to the torch.

 

They desecrated

native graves,

raped native women

and mutilated

native bodies

for profit

and for sport.

 

One lieutenant,

William Barton,

sent a party of his men

“to look for

some dead Indians.”

 

The soldiers

returned to camp

having skinned two of them

from their hips down

for boot legs:

a pair for Barton’s

commander

and “the other for myself,”

he wrote in

his official journal.
