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."… (mer)

This book is researched and interesting and informative. It reads like a schoolbook, one that should have been required reading inAmerica.

If you think it is just about Indigenous Americans, you are only partly right. It is about colonialism, it is about white supremacy, it is both sobering and prescient considering when it was written. ( )

A Rorschach test of unconscious manifest destiny the author calls the idea that America was always supposed to span form sea to shining sea; a puritan covenant.
The author has been criticized for the usage of the term colonial capitalism when, in fact, colonial mercantilism would have been appropriate. After having identified the passages in question, I concluded that the issue is not clear-cut. Indeed, the author's usage and identification of instances of colonial capitalism strikes me as a bit broad in range, yet as certain aspects of capitalism and mercantilism do quite a bit overlap, I hardly feel an unforgivable error had been committed.

It’s a harrowing read. Should be required reading ( )

I started this book several years ago and misplaced it until I moved some bookshelves and found it behind. I had to reread what I had read before in order to fully grasp the whole book, which tells the story of the United States as a "colonialist-settler state", which, much like the European colonial states, subjected the original civilizations that were already on the North American continent and that it now rules. It challenges the standard tale we are taught in our American schools that European settlers "discovered" America and provides different indigenous peoples' perspectives on key historical events. Ms. Dunbar-Ortiz notes that the indigenous peoples who were and still are in a colonial relationship with the United States inhabitant this land and thrived for millennia before they were "displaced to fragmented reservations and economically decimated," and therefore requires restitution of over a hundred million acres of land and reparations. There is a lot of rich and useful information here, but I think Ms. Dunbar-Ortiz overstates the case glosses over some other facts in order to present a purportedly idyllic world before the Europeans arrived, e.g., that some tribes were predatory and violent, and this continent was hardly the Garden of Eden before European settlers arrived. I also found her descriptions of the Indigenous Peoples' lives to be simplistic and inaccurate. She described the nations as agricultural, but that is not entirely the case. Many nations were hunter-gatherer societies that involved the killing of animals for food. Nevertheless, Mr. Dunbar-Ortiz adds new voices to our collective history. ( )

I feel sick. I want to drink….a lot, but that won’t help. I want a soul hug and to hug others. I want to cry and scream. I am thankful for even more information, no matter how painful. So much makes more sense. ( )

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.
