When I was a kid, back in the fifties, native americans, then known as Indians, redskins, red savages or injuns, were uniformly portrayed in movies and televisions as an aggressive threat to early America. Their aggression was portrayed as without any cause other than the injuns nasty nature. In TV shows, particularly, native americans were almost uniformly the villains.

 Why would they ever attack us?

Maybe they hated our freedoms. Or, as outlandish as it sounds, maybe they didn’t like us stealing their land and treating them as less than human.

Think the Cherokees and the Trail of Tears
