How do we as Indigenous, define colonialism? What does colonialism mean to the Indigenous, especially the leaders? Have the leaders ever bothered to read up on the history of what happened to the Indigenous since 1492? The catholic churches papal decrees, Romanus Pontifex in 1493, giving Spain the churches blessings to invade what is now north and South America. Prior to that, inter caetera, issued in 1453 to give the churches blessings for Portugal to invade West Africa. In exchange for part of stolen loot and stolen lands. Have the Indigenous leaders read up on the pilgrims murdering their Indigenous saviors three years after their famous "Thanksgiving Feast"? Capt. Miles Standish, and his men lured the Indigenous leaders into a blockhouse under the ruse of a meeting. When all were inside, the windows and doors were bolted shut. The Indigenous were run through with swords and shot to death. The survivors were hung from the rafters. The illegal European immigrants and their descendants, were not satisfied and will not be satisfied till all Indigenous are stripped of their lands and resources and removed from their lands. For centuries the Europeans and Americans have invaded weaker countries to allow their energy and mining conglomerates to steal natural resources and lands for colonization. With the removal, murder and genocide of the Indigenous peoples. Theft and Murder. Even now, Americas foreign policy with 900 bases in 130 countries is to destabilize governments in order to mount coups to topple governments, to install puppet 2 bit dictator regimes, bribed to subjugate their people with intimidation, terror, kidnappings, rape and murder. Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden are some whom America propped up. Iran was the victim of a CIA engineered coup in 1953, Venezuela was the victim of a CIA engineered coup thanks to Daddy Bush and his fellow neo con parasites.
