Summary
While the term "Indians" stems from the faulty geography of Columbus, that name and the images it has come to suggest have endured for five centuries, not only obscuring the true identity of the original Americans but serving as an ideological weapon in their subjugation. This text documents the self-serving stereotypes--ranging from Noble savage to bloodthirsty redskin--that Europeans and white Americans have concocted about the "Indian."
