Columbus Brought Murder, Slavery, and Colonization
In Columbus’s journals, along with his mens, there were some horrifying stories of what they did to Native Americans. Columbus and his men murdered and chopped up Native Americans and gave their limbs to the dogs. They also kidnapped young girls and sold them off into the sex trade. Islanders were enslaved and were betted on for a slicing with one stroke.
