What Happened to the Indians?

A Native American Woman - Press for More
Long before the Pilgrims landed, Spanish Conquistadors brought diseases, horses, whips, swords, guns and vicious dogs to America; they took women, food and slaves as they went. North America withstood Spanish Conquest to become the ONLY place in the New World that Spain never colonized. Spain reacted by blaming American Indians for their failure. They conceived a prejudice against Indians which others acquired. The Devil's image, a "Red Man with a Spear," was born when Spanish Conquest ended at Chicago. Spain devastated America's Indian Nations with foreign diseases then crippled the survivors with a horrible prejudice. Pioneers and Pilgrims brought that image with them from Europe. American Indians have suffered ever since.
