Native American Holocaust

Program #STAD001. Recorded in Nashville, TN on October 30, 2008.

David Stannard recounts the apocalypse visited upon Native peoples by the Anglo invaders. The barbarity of the onslaught can scarcely be believed. Stannard lays out the historical background as well as a compelling discussion of genocide. He says, “If we are now as a nation edging closer to widespread recognition” of what happened to the indigenous population, “another critical task lies ahead. The American Holocaust is a matter of history but the wreckage that it caused remains vividly evident among many of its survivor descendants today. From the desert southwest of Arizona to the Black Hills of South Dakota and beyond many American Indian communities barely survive, mired in poverty and despair that has little equal except in some so-called desperately impoverished Third World countries.” A powerful and brilliantly argued presentation by an important historian.

Recorded at Vanderbilt University.
