edit: I often wonder why when people try to discuss the aborigional people in the americas. people seem to only talk about human sacrafices by aztecs and mayans. no one says a thing about the hundreds of peaceful nations
I know where the Aztecs lived. There were many peaceful nations (my husband is part Chocktaw and Cherokee, btw).
But the Aztecs were not the only ones to try to wipe out or enslave neighboring tribes. And I didn't talk about human sacrifices. I talked about genocide.
As my daughter's history professor at University used to say, give the people of the past the courtesy of recognizing they lived complex lives.
It wasn't as simplistic as all natives good, Europeans bad.
