Tons of stuff you need to know about First Nations People

I have possibly tricked you into reading a book. It is First Nations 101: Tons of Stuff You Need to Know About First Nations People by Lynda Gray. Lynda Gray is an Aboriginal Woman whose ancestors were in the land that whitey came to call the Americas when dumbass Christopher Columbus and the Genocide Crew bumped into it in 1492. Chris thought he was in India!! And so, he called these strangely dressed people "Indians" a silly name that unfortuantely seems to have stuck. Then, he and the boys did some killin'. The book is not all doom and gloom though, as Lynda Gray does an excellent job of educating those of us who are interested. Get interested. Highly recommended.

Not a good idea to use a racially charged slur

In 1492,Columbus never stepped a foot in North America. He was actually in the Caribbean in 1492. He ran into the Arawaks who were Amerindians, and based on their skin tones, he thought they were the same people that looked like the people in India, so referred to them as Indians, when he saw them.

Christopher Columbus: 3 things you think he did that he didn’t

So you think that Christopher Columbus discovered America in the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa Maria and also, while he was at it, proved the Earth wasn’t flat?

Wrong, wrong and wrong. Given that the European explorer has a U.S. federal holiday to his name — and is honored by holidays in other countries as well — let’s look at the disturbing truth about the fearless but brutal Columbus.

*He didn’t prove that the Earth is round.

Kids in school have long been taught that when Columbus set sail in 1492 to find a new route to the East Indies, it was feared he would fall off the edge of the Earth because people then thought the planet was flat. Nope. As early as the sixth century B.C., Pythagoras — later followed by Aristotle and Euclid — wrote about Earth as a sphere, and historians say there is no doubt that the educated in Columbus’s day knew quite well that the Earth was round. Columbus in fact owned a copy of Ptolemy’s Geography, written at the height of the Roman Empire, 1,300 years before Chris Columbus set sail. Several books published in Europe between 1200 and 1500 discussed the Earth’s shape, including “The Sphere,” written in the early 1200s, which was required reading in European universities in the 1300s and beyond. The big question for Columbus, it turns out, was not the shape of the Earth but the size of the ocean he was planning to cross.


* The famous names of the ships he took on his famous 1492 trip across the Atlantic Ocean, the Niña, Pinta and Santa Maria, probably weren’t really named Niña, Pinta and Santa Maria. The Santa Maria was also known at the time as La Gallega, meaning The Galician.” The Niña is now believed to be a nickname for a ship originally called the Santa Clara, and the Pinta was probably also a nickname, though the ship’s real name isn’t clear.

*Columbus didn’t “discover” America — he never set foot in North America.

During four separate trips that started with the one in 1492, Columbus landed on various Caribbean islands that are now the Bahamas as well as the island later called Hispaniola. He also explored the Central and South American coasts. But he didn’t reach North America, which, of course, was already inhabited by Native Americans, and he never thought he had found a new continent. You may also remember that it is believed that Norse explorer Leif Erikson reached Canada perhaps 500 years before Columbus was born, and there are some who believe that Phoenician sailors crossed the Atlantic much earlier than that.
