What Would Sitting Bull Do?

"The reason for killing and destroying such an infinate number of souls is that the Christians have an ultimate aim, which is to aquire gold, and to swell themselves with riches in a very brief time and thus rise to a high estate disproportionate to their merits."
From Devastation of the Indies by Bartolome de Las Casas ~ 1542
In reference to, Christopher Columbus

" we are celebrating a man who... began the genocide of indigenous peoples, exploitation of resources in this hemisphere and also was the first person to initiate the transatlantic slave trade in this hemisphere."
Roberto Mucaro-Borrero ~ Indiginous Activist
In reference to, Christopher Columbus
