..this simple act, in fact, defies the very existence that european-english and spanish tried to destroy of our history and people. This is in protest to the King and Queen of Spain's arrival to our continent on Sept 4th, meeting with the US president, Sept 15, 2015 and celebrating genocide and slavery of our people.-complete with re-enactments in what is considered the oldest european settlement- St. Augustine, FL.

HOUSTON NATIVES, PEOPLE OF COLOR AND ABORIGINAL PEOPLES OF THE AMERICAS AND THEIR SUPPORTERS LOVE TO SHOW THE RESILIENCE OF ABORIGINAL CULTURES.

ALL OF THIS- WHICH WAS IMPOSED BY THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT BY INVASION, COLONIZATION, INDOCTRINATION AND ASSIMILATION OF THOUSANDS OF CULTURES AFFECTING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ON THIS CONTINENT AND SHOULD NOT BE CELEBRATED!

JOIN US AS WE SHOW THAT "We are STILL here!"

SO, HOW HAS COLONIZATION AFFECTED YOU?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The first 19 or so Africans to reach the English colonies arrived in Jamestown, Virginia in 1619, brought by Dutch traders who had seized them from a captured Spanish slave ship.

The Spanish usually baptized slaves in Africa before embarking them. As English law then considered baptized Christians exempt from slavery, these Africans were treated as indentured servants, and they joined about 1,000 English indentured servants already in the colony.

The transformation of the status of Africans from indentured servitude to slavery – which they could not leave or escape – happened gradually.
_________________________________________________
When Christian Europeans first arrived in the Americas they had been greatly impressed by the indigenous peoples" simplicity and friendliness, as well as their way of life.

They thought they had literally found Paradise — the Garden of Eden described in the book of Genesis. The Spanish were so impressed by Aztec medicine that the King's physician was sent to study it, and he spent seven years doing so.

The established pattern was repeated in one location after another.

Accusations of cannibalism and sodomy arose to excuse Christian atrocities. Inquisitor-Governors like Don Nuño Guzmán taught that the indigenous population did not have human souls, and so were subhuman, and incapable of understanding Christian doctrine.

This meant that it was not wrong to rape, torture, enslave or kill them. Living men could be dismembered for fun, and their limbs fed to dogs. Babies could be seized and have their heads dashed against rocks. This was no more a sin than killing an animal — i.e. not sinful at all.
