American Indians have a term that translates as “cannibals” for people who eat up everything around them, including other people’s lives. That is what they called the people from Europe.

There’s a lot written about why American Indians didn’t fight back the way they could have. And there’s also some interesting history about the native people in Brazil, who took an entirely different approach to the Portuguese who landed there — which was to kill them all off — until the Portuguese decided that they had to intermarry with the population in order to earn the right to stay.

The local Arapaho tribe here in Colorado called the white man “spider people,” because they kept building webs of roads everywhere.

So true, Kalima. At the moment I’m reading a biography of Sampson Occum, a New England native American of the late 18th century, who was, apparently, a lot more enlightened than the guys who “civilized” him! Fascinating story.
