Today in the United States, there are more than five hundred federally-recognized Indigenous nations comprising nearly three million people, descendants of the fifteen million Native people who once inhabited this land. The centuries-long genocidal program of the US settler-colonial regimen has largely been omitted from history. Now historian and activist Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz offers a history of the United States told from the perspective of Indigenous peoples and reveals how Native Americans, for centuries, actively resisted expansion of the US empire. In An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States, Dunbar-Ortiz challenges the founding myth of the United States and shows how policy against the Indigenous peoples was colonialist and designed to seize the territories of the original inhabitants, displacing or eliminating them. And as Dunbar-Ortiz reveals, this policy was praised in popular culture, through writers like James Fenimore Cooper and Walt Whitman, and in the highest offices of government and the military. As the genocidal policy reached its zenith under President Andrew Jackson, its ruthlessness was best articulated by US Army general Thomas S. Jesup, who, in 1836, wrote of the Seminoles: "The country can be rid of them only by exterminating them."… (mere)

This is an important book to read, but not an easy one. It's one that really shows how much history books are written by the victors. There are so many historical events that I was taught a super-sanitized version of in school, and so many others that I never even heard about.

[b:An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States|20588662|An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States (ReVisioning American History, #3)|Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1395003842l/20588662._SX50_.jpg|39861426] is one of the best history books I have ever read. When laid out as in this text - year by year, battle by battle, massacre by massacre - it is clear that the indigenous populations of the Americas were systematically wiped out in the name of colonialism, imperialism, and racism. While some of the specific arguments made in may not hold up to scrutiny, the broader points made by the author to be well founded and argued. Highest recommendation. ( )

This was more a history of the abuses Europeans and the subsequent US government committed on the people already living here than a a history of those people. If you want to know about THEM, you need to read something else. ( )

SINOPSIS
HOY EN DÍA en Estados Unidos hay más de quinientas naciones indígenas reconocidas por el Gobierno federal que comprenden casi tres millones de personas, descendientes de los quince millones de nativos que habitaban en estas tierras. El programa genocida que los colonos desarrollaron durante siglos ha sido omitido en gran medida de la historia, pero ahora, por primera vez la historiadora y activista Rosanne Dunbar-Ortiz nos ofrece una historia de Estados Unidos contada desde la perspectiva de los pueblos indígenas. Abarcando más de cuatrocientos años, nos revela cómo los nativos americanos, durante siglos han resistido activamente la expansión del imperio estadounidense, y desafía el mito sobre la fundación de Estados Unidos, exponiendo cómo la política contra los pueblos indígenas era colonialista y estaba diseñada para apoderarse de los territorios de los habitantes originales desplazándolos o eliminándolos. Una política que , por cierto, fue muy elogiada en la cultura popular, a través de escritores como James Fenimore Cooper o Walt Wihitman, así como desde las instituciones gubernamentales y militares más importantes.

Humanoids existed on Earth for around four million hyears as hunters and gatherers living in small communal groups that through their movements found and populated every continent.
Introduction: Under the crust of that portion of Earth called the United States of America--"from California...to the Gulf Stream waters"--are interred the bones, villages, fields, and sacred objects of American Indians.
