If Disney was a bit more accurate…

Someone did a brilliant editing job using Disney’s Pocahontas and Corporate Avenger’s “Christians Murdered Indians” (look them up if you haven’t heard of them before; highly recommend), although the disclaimer was unnecessary.

It’s important to note that while few First Nations in the United States were militarily conquered, manifest destiny and colonalization still impacted all First Nations and continues to do so (despite what some ‘leaders’ may claim).  It will be quite the healing process to decolonize and reassert ourselves as sovereign, thriving Indigenous Peoples by our own terms.  But I have confidence that that day will come.
