Native American Artefacts ...

Oregon Historical Society 


The words Colonisation , Invasion , Conquest , Occupation , Appropriation/annexation , Acquisition, Subjugation and Encroachment are never used in any text in any forum discussing the Original Natives of The Americas . The standard term used to denote the period before influx of europeans  is " Pre-Contact " :  a sanitised , scented and sugar-coated label  fit for public consumption . 

Genocides ?......Denial makes History  cool. 


But at least  they aaved some remnants of the native civilization and made a museum out of them ....a greatly saddening visit .
