8 Myths and Atrocities About Christopher Columbus and Columbus Day

http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/advanced/search?fq%5b0%5d=ts_field_full_name%3AVincent%20Schilling" rel="nofollow - Vincent Schilling
10/14/13

On the second Monday of October each year, Native Americans cringe at the thought of honoring a man who committed atrocities against Indigenous Peoples.

Columbus Day was conceived by the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic Fraternal organization, in the 1930s because they wanted a Catholic hero. After President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the day into law as a federal holiday in 1937, the rest has been history.

In an attempt to further thwart the celebration of this “holiday,” we at ICTMN have outlined eight misnomers and bloody, greedy, sexually perverse and horrendous atrocities committed by Columbus and his men.

On the Way—Columbus Stole a Sailor’s Reward

After obtaining funding for his explorations to reach Asia from the seizure and sale of properties from Spanish Jews and Muslims by order of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, Columbus headed out to explore a new world with money and ships.

Brimming with the excitement of discovering new land, Columbus offered a reward of 10,000 maravedis or about $540 (a sailor’s yearly salary) for the first person to discover such land. Though another sailor saw the land in October 1492, Columbus retracted the reward he had previously offered because he claimed he had seen a dim light in the west.

Columbus Never Landed on American Soil—Not in 1492, Not Ever

We’re not talking about the Leif Ericson Viking explorer story.  We mean Columbus didn’t land on the higher 48—ever. Columbus quite literally landed in what is now known as the Bahamas and later Hispaniola, present-day Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

Upon arrival, Columbus and his expedition of weapon laden Spaniards met the Arawaks, Tainos and Lucayans—all friendly, according to Columbus’ writings. Soon after arriving, Columbus wrecked the Santa Maria and the Arawaks worked for hours to save the crew and cargo.

Impressed with the friendliness of the native people, Columbus seized control of the land in the name of Spain. He also helped himself to some locals. In his journal he wrote:

“As soon as I arrived in the Indies, on the first Island which I found, I took some of the natives by force in order that they might learn and might give me information of whatever there is in these parts.”

Columbus Painted a Horrible Picture of Peaceful Natives

When Columbus first saw the Native Arawaks that came to greet him and his crew he spoke with a peaceful and admiring tone.

“They ... brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things... They willingly traded everything they owned...  They were well-built, with good bodies and handsome features.... They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane... . They would make fine servants.... With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.”

After several months in the Caribbean, on January 13, 1493 two Natives were murdered during trading. Columbus, who had otherwise described the Natives as gentle people wrote “(they are) evil and I believe they are from the island of Caribe, and that they eat men.” He also described them as “savage cannibals, with dog-like noses that drink the blood of their victims.”

The cannibal story is taught as fact in some of today’s schools.

Columbus’ Men Were Rapists and Murderers

On Columbus’s first trip to the Caribbean, he later returned to Spain and left behind 39 men who went ahead and helped themselves to Native women. Upon his return the men were all dead.

With 1,200 more soldiers at his disposal, rape and pillaging became rampant as well as tolerated by Columbus.

This is supported by a reported close friend of Columbus, Michele de Cuneo who wrote the first disturbing account of a relation between himself and a Native female gift given to him by Columbus.

“While I was in the boat I captured a very beautiful Carib woman, whom the said Lord Admiral gave to me, and with whom, having taken her into my cabin, she being naked according to their custom, I conceived desire to take pleasure. I wanted to put my desire into execution but she did not want it and treated me with her finger nails in such a manner that I wished I had never begun. But seeing that (to tell you the end of it all), I took a rope and thrashed her well, for which she raised such unheard of screams that you would not have believed your ears. Finally we came to an agreement in such manner that I can tell you that she seemed to have been brought up in a school of harlots.”

Several accounts of cruelty and murder include Spaniards testing the sharpness of blades on Native people by cutting them in half, beheading them in contests and throwing Natives into vats of boiling soap. There are also accounts of suckling infants being lifted from their mother’s breasts by Spaniards, only to be dashed headfirst into large rocks.

Bartolome De Las Casas, a former slave owner who became Bishop of Chiapas, described these exploits. “Such inhumanities and barbarisms were committed in my sight as no age can parallel,” he wrote. “My eyes have seen these acts so foreign to human nature that now I tremble as I write.”

Columbus Enslaved the Native People for Gold

Because Columbus reported a plethora of Natives for slaves, rivers of gold and fertile pastures to Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand, Columbus was given 17 ships and more than 1,200 men on his next expedition. However, Columbus had to deliver. In the next few years, Columbus was desperate to fulfill those promises—hundreds of Native slaves died on their way back to Spain and gold was not as bountiful as expected.

Columbus forced the Natives to work in gold mines until exhaustion. Those who opposed were beheaded or had their ears cut off.

In the provinces of Cicao all persons over 14 had to supply at least a thimble of gold dust every three months and were given copper necklaces as proof of their compliance. Those who did not fulfill their obligation had their hands cut off, which were tied around their necks while they bled to death—some 10,000 died handless.

In two years’ time, approximately 250,000 Indians on Haiti were dead. Many deaths included mass suicides or intentional poisonings or mothers killing their babies to avoid persecution.

According to Columbus, in a few years before his death, “Gold is the most precious of all commodities; gold constitutes treasure, and he who possesses it has all he needs in the world, as also the means of rescuing souls from purgatory, and restoring them to the enjoyment of paradise.”

Columbus Provided Native Sex Slaves to His Men

In addition to putting the Natives to work as slaves in his gold mines, Columbus also sold sex slaves to his men—some as young as 9. Columbus and his men also raided villages for sex and sport.

In the year 1500, Columbus wrote: “A hundred castellanoes are as easily obtained for a woman as for a farm, and it is very general and there are plenty of dealers who go about looking for girls; those from nine to ten are now in demand.”

Columbus’ Men Used Native People as Dog Food

In the early years of Columbus’ conquests there were butcher shops throughout the Caribbean where Indian bodies were sold as dog food. There was also a practice known as the montería infernal, the infernal chase, or manhunt, in which Indians were hunted by war-dogs.

These dogs—who also wore armor and had been fed human flesh, were a fierce match for the Indians. Live babies were also fed to these war dogs as sport, sometimes in front of horrified parents.

Columbus Returned to Spain in Shackles—But Was Pardoned

After a multitude of complaints against Columbus about his mismanagement of the island of Hispaniola, a royal commissioner arrested Columbus in 1500 and brought him back to Spain in chains.

Though he was stripped of his governor title, he was pardoned by King Ferdinand, who then subsidized a fourth voyage.

Good post....  My folks made sure I wrote the truth about Columbus when we had to do a book report in grade school.... my teacher was like Confused...LOL.... Its crazy but again never have full faith that the whole truth is being told when its written by those who were the oppressors. I remember when I got curious and researched the real story of Pocahontas.... DeadCry.. This is why I believe that parents need to educate their kids on history beyond what theyre being given in schools...or else they will go into the world blinded by a false reality.

The Taino genocide

Fri 20 Sep 2013 by http://abagond.wordpress.com/author/abagond/" rel="nofollow - abagond

http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&docid=JBkUkAmr3j3mHM&tbnid=N2f8jYRpjRvDmM:&ved=0CAUQjRw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.reygladiador.com%2Feng%2Fkonkwistadorzy.htm&ei=vV5cUpTZDYm6yAH0Tg&bvm=bv.53899372,d.aWc&psig=AFQjCNHN44kvOsCC7VC8m7a7CeLCdDn4Dg&ust=1381871623811527" rel="nofollow">

The Taino genocide (1492-1518) is where the Spanish wiped out most of the Tainos (Arawaks), the native people of the northern Caribbean (present-day Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, etc). Columbus himself set it in motion and oversaw it till 1500.

According to one estimate, genocide and disease wiped out 3 million of the 3.5 million Tainos – 85%. Most were already dead when smallpox arrived in 1518.

Columbus noticed two things about the Tainos:

  1. They wore gold jewellery.
  2. Their most advanced weapon was the spear.

Columbus:

With 50 men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.

Columbus made La Taina, the land of the Tainos, into a living hell. It went way beyond simply killing those who fought Spanish rule. The Spanish had the Tainos:

  • grilled,
  • cut up into pieces like sheep,
  • run down by hunting dogs and torn to pieces,
  • strung up and burned alive 13 at a time – in memory of Jesus and his 12 Apostles

http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&docid=FZjcjKCZiwrjhM&tbnid=H5J6QaCnmU9dOM:&ved=0CAUQjRw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FBartolom%25C3%25A9_de_las_Casas&ei=A19cUpblC6feyAHl9oCYCQ&bvm=bv.53899372,d.aWc&psig=AFQjCNHytybLOvYvk3lN1pi4kx71ArgvZQ&ust=1381871738401808" rel="nofollow">

They killed even women and children. Even babies: the Spanish threw babies against rocks and into rivers – and laughed. They cut off pieces of Tainos for entertainment. They cut off their heads for practice. They raped women and girls – and brought back syphilis to Europe. They even raped the wife of a king.

The Spanish were kinder to their animals than to the Tainos.

If a Taino killed a Spaniard, the Spanish killed 100 Tainos in return.

They killed Tainos by the thousands, even those who brought them food and gifts. They killed half the people of the kingdom of Maguana outright.

http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&docid=jPikdLeoajr0HM&tbnid=wIGjtKp-fUW1DM:&ved=0CAUQjRw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fcommons.wikimedia.org%2Fwiki%2FFile%3ACopia_de_Cacicazgos_de_la_Hispaniola.gif&ei=619cUvekIMTWyQH0lIDQDw&bvm=bv.53899372,d.aWc&psig=AFQjCNGF4F9Qe2cpG8qBXUxcjBzM0FkEAw&ust=1381871952249759" rel="nofollow">

After the killing fields, the Spanish divided the remaining Tainos among themselves to teach them the Christian faith:

  • For Taino men that meant working in the mines, often being worked to death. As many as 90% died within in three months.
  • For Taino women that meant working the land, even the heavy work that men used to do.

There was so little food that babies died for lack of milk. Children died of hunger by the thousands. Men were worked so hard in the mines that few children were born.

Columbus demanded a certain amount gold or cotton from each Taino over the age of 13. Those who failed to meet his demands had their hands cut off.

All this was shocking behaviour by Western standards of the time.

When there were no longer enough Taino workers left, the Spanish brought in African slaves to take their place.

It was such a hell on earth that:

  • Mothers killed their babies.
  • Mass suicides were common.

Many fled to the mountains, blacks too, fighting the Spanish from there.

Hatuey, one of the Taino kings of Cuba, told his people to throw their gold into the river: the Christians worshipped gold as their god and would kill them for it.

Well conquering in the name of religion is expected.   The bible tells story after story of how it should be done.  Every single man, woman and child should be killed destroying all traces of the previous system.   Moses was denied entry to the promised land for killing only the men and giving the women and children to his men as "spoils of war".  His brother was ordered by Yahweh to pluck them all out and make sure they were dead, dead.

That type of mercy is against the rules but it seems there has always been "rape and torture" dance break before the final kill.   A few "virgins" being taken as property was is religion approved. 

Sigh.  I'm just saying, this is only unusual in America, today, where history and religion are sanitized to protect the guilty.

Well that's the biggest proof religion is messed up on some level. They can justify murder and rape in the name of their god, yet they should be protected and be able to go into "heaven".

Columbus and his Spanish brethren came here and slaughtered every Taino they saw. We have nothing left of Taino culture. Thankfully, some of them survived on a few of the other island in the East.

Same with Haiti (and much of the Dominican republic, despite the claims of overwhelming taino blood, which is historically unlikely)

In the 90s we were being taught this story but they placed him in New England. It's like they were attempting to give us half truths to murk it all up.

"They ... brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things... They willingly traded everything they owned...  They were well-built, with good bodies and handsome features.... They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane."

Normal people's reaction: Take out a book, show pictures of my country. Try to teach them how to read my language and learn their language. Learn their culture, etc.

White people's reaction:
"They would make fine servants.... With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.”

Where do you find this stuff?

Hi Nita,

"Lies My Teacher Told Me" By James Loewen has a good amount of information on Columbus and Native Americans.

Might be worth checking out.

I already posted the link upstairs, but here's a pdf of the infamous book "Lost Tribes and Promised Lands". It gives first hand accounts of when Columbus and his demonic cousins arrived to the Caribbean and saw that the natives (modern day Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Dominicans and so on) were speaking Hebrew and following Hebrew customs way before they were slaughtered and indoctrinated with Christianity/Catholicism. 
They were a royal people...so royal that the kids used to play marbles using diamonds and precious stones.

Right now this paperback book is about $1,100 on Amazon and you'll be lucky if you can find the original version will all the pages.

Ha! I haven't heard that one yet. I've seen white folks on FB talking about "well given the circumstances, none of us would be here if it weren't for him"Ermm

Up here in NYC, they have a parade for him. Its typically frequented by alot of Italians, you know the ones that "love black people so much". They had 5th Ave shut down for that madness so I had to take a few detours. I did notice however that a young school band of mainly Hispanic kids were prepping for the march smdh.
