When explorers and clergymen first landed on the shores of the “New World” they documented in their diaries and journals descriptions of the Native peoples they encountered.
Descriptions of honesty, generosity, bravery, respect, humility, family-oriented and spiritual filled the pages. In 1492 Columbus described the Indigenous inhabitants as “so peaceable, are these people that I swear to you Majesties there is not in the world a better nation.”
