Unlike other indigenous cultures in the New World AztecMaya and Inca which left behind abundant archeological and physical evidence of their societies, scant artifacts and evidence remain of the Puerto Rico's indigenous population. Scarce archaeological findings and early Spanish accounts from the colonial era constitute all that is known about them.

By Tria Andrews The Nina image credit: Unlike Columbus, however, de las Casas eventually became an advocate for social justice on behalf of Indigenous peoples. The essay purports to critique and correct mainstream discourses by illuminating the atrocities committed against Indigenous peoples. However, the piece actually perpetuates these injustices by invisibilizing Indigenous peoples and the tactics of resistance they have employed.
Inman states that he will celebrate de las Casas day himself, but also asks others to do so, advocating for a federal holiday that foregrounds a guardian for Indigenous peoples rather than Indigenous peoples themselves.
Historically, dominant narratives have portrayed Native peoples as requiring guidance from outsiders—in particular European Americans—as a means to control their personhood and property.
This rationale has served as justification for labeling Native Americans as wards of the state and denying them basic human rights. Unfortunately, this essay is an instance of how these logics and legacies, which privilege the European male above Indigenous peoples and African Americans, continue to guide thought processes today and the hinder the ability to imagine real structural change.
In the essay the author emphasizes: But Columbus Day is an American tradition!
This specious statement is uncritical and dismissive, first, because de las Casas himself was a slave owner and temporarily supported the enslavement of African Americans. Eventually, however, he retracted those views and came to see all forms of slavery as being equally wrong.
The author perhaps mentions Lincoln and King together to demonstrate empathy for African Americans, who, historically and in present day, are also subject to immense structural violences. Strategically in the essay, Inman must display an understanding of human right violations as they affect African Americans.
Not only did Lincoln sign into law the Homestead Act and the Pacific Railway Act, which displaced Native peoples from their land, but he also ordered the largest mass execution in the U. Third, the essay neglects to realize that American traditions, such as the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving, frequently do not recognize or respect Indigenous peoples, epistemologies, or traditions—in fact, quite the opposite is true—although Native peoples have certainly appropriated or reappropriated these traditions as their own.
While deconstructing the Columbus myth is necessary, the author should not ignore that celebrating mainstream historical figures, like Columbus and Lincoln, who have committed brutal acts against Indigenous peoples, is the norm rather than an anomaly. These histories often seek to invisibilize Native peoples and dehumanize African Americans in order to conceal the horrific violences enacted by the nation-state.
And whose perspectives are we foregrounding? Her critical research examines culturally relevant forms of rehabilitation for Native American youth in juvenile detention centers located on tribal grounds.
