As Long as Grass Grows: The Indigenous Fight for Environmental Justice, from Colonization to Standing Rock | Loaded: A Disarming History of the Second Amendment (City Lights Open Media) | The Other Slavery: The Uncovered Story of Indian Enslavement in America | Racism without Racists: Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in America | Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians but Were Afraid to Ask | An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States | Who We Be
In this enlightening book, scholars and activists Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz and Dina Gilio-Whitaker tackle a wide range of myths about Native American culture and history that have misinformed generations. Tracing how these ideas evolved, and drawing from history, the authors disrupt long-held and enduring myths such as:
âColumbus Discovered Americaâ
âThanksgiving Proves the Indians Welcomed Pilgrimsâ
âIndians Were Savage and Warlikeâ
âEuropeans Brought Civilization to Backward Indiansâ
âThe United States Did Not Have a Policy of Genocideâ
âSports Mascots Honor Native Americansâ
âMost Indians Are on Government Welfareâ
âIndian Casinos Make Them All Richâ
âIndians Are Naturally Predisposed to Alcoholâ
Each chapter deftly shows how these myths are rooted in the fears and prejudice of European settlers and in the larger political agendas of a settler state aimed at acquiring Indigenous land and tied to narratives of erasure and disappearance. Accessibly written and revelatory, âAll the Real Indians Died Offâ challenges readers to rethink what they have been taught about Native Americans and history.
