Originally this video was made with the song "The Last Resort" by The Eagles, but due to copy-rights, I had to replace the song with something else offered to me by Youtube .. ==================== My gratitude is extended to PatongTed and scottytoohottie123 for assisting in the making of this video. ====================
"In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue" . . . and made the first contact with the "Indians." For Native Americans, the world after 1492 would never be the same. This date marked the beginning of the long road of persecution and genocide of Native Americans, our indigenous people. Genocide was an important cause of the decline for many tribes.
"By conservative estimates, the population of the United states prior to European contact was greater than 12 million. Four centuries later, the count was reduced by 95% to 237 thousand."
