The Indians saved the Pilgrim
And in return the Pilgrim killed 'em
It can be taken as an example of how history is warped to fit the point of view of certain high hats. In a sense we don’t wanna be teaching second graders about how the true Americans were tricked, lied to, murder pillaged, and forced from their land to help build this great nation. Its still a messed up story that shouldn’t be candy coated.
