While natives had been forced into slavery and servitude as early as 1636, it was not until King Philip’s War that natives were enslaved in large numbers, Fisher wrote in the study. The 1675 to 1676 war pitted Native American leader King Philip, also known as Metacom, and his allies against the English colonial settlers.
One Example of the genocide that occurred from first content. down the street where I live. “In 1614, English Captain Thomas Hunt captured over 20 Nausett and Patuxet, who, along with the Nobscussett were part of the Wampanoag confederation. They were brought to Spain where Captain Hunt sold as many as he could into slavery. In 1618/19, a plague killed most of the Nobscussett.”
A second example of genocide is a proclamation from Massachusetts/Maine concerning the Penobscot:
Included in the proclamation is “For every Scalp of such Female Indian or Male Indian under the Age of twelve years that Shall be killed and brought in as Evidence of their being killed as aforesaid, Twenty pounds”
A third example of genocide is what President Andrew Jackson called “Indian removal.” In 1830, as President, he signed the Indian Removal Act, which gave the federal government the power to exchange Native-held land east of the Mississippi for land in the west, in the “Indian colonization zone.”
Read the recollections from James Scott last survivor of the Trail of Tears.
A fourth example of genocide is the other various massacres that occurred. Along with many, many others his included the Sand Creek Massacre of 1864, the 1863, massacre on the banks of the Bear River and the infamous Wounded Knee Massacre of December 28, 1890.
