It’s Indigenous Peoples' Day

President Joe Biden has designated October 11th as Indigenous Peoples' Day and acknowledged, in a Columbus Day proclamation, that European explorers harmed Native Americans.

America's indigenous people, of course, predate Columbus by at least 23,000 years. 

The native peoples of the US (many tribes, each distinct in terms of language, culture, history, and politics) had dogs, of course. In fact, prior to the arrival of the Spanish horse, the dog was the largest pack animal in the United States.

The native people saved the first Europeans to the New World by showing the lazy and incompetent British how to plant corn and hunt deer.

And what did the British illegal aliens do to thank them?  

Why they turned around and declared biological war. Ever hear the story about “smallpox blankets”?

It’s true.

The fellow that was intentionally spreading disease to native Americans was a British General by the name of Lord Jeffrey Amherst — the fellow that Amherst College and the town of Amherst, Massachusetts are named after.

In a letter to General Amherst on July 13, 1763, Colonel Henry Bouquet suggests the distribution of smallpox blankets to "inoculate the Indians" with disease.

Amherst’s reply of July 16, 1763 approves the plan and suggests as well they “try Every other method that can serve to Extirpate this Execrable Race."

These same letters discuss the use of dogs to hunt and kill the Indians, the so-called "Spaniard's Method” detailed in a previous Columbus Day post.

Amherst approved of the practice, but says he cannot implement it because there are simply not enough dogs.


Indigenous Peoples' Day?  Only about 500 years too late!
