Penobscots don't want history of ancestors' scalping by European settlers to be whitewashed | AP News

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Most Americans know about atrocities endured by Native Americans after the arrival of European settlers: wars, disease, stolen land. But they aren’t always taught the extent of the indiscriminate killings.

JuanitaIguana1 This is where the term 'redskin' comes from. A white invader scalped a native in the land that was wanted but inhabited and turned in the scalp, or 'redskin', for a bounty. That is why the name of the Washington Football Team was finally changed, it was a horrible name.
MooPoint91 Horrific legacy.
