Hear Me, Don't Just See Me: An Indigenous View of Columbus

Program #TALL001. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on October 21, 1991.

1992 marks the quincentennial of Columbus's so-called discovery of America. Although he may be a hero for some Europeans and their descendents, the indigenous peoples of North and South America have a decidedly different perspective on the Italian-born Spanish explorer. The celebration of Columbus in parades and in history textbooks is being challenged.
