Some (But Not All) Settler Massacres of Indigenous Peoples in the United States.
Map by Jordan Engel.
“…it began to come clear to me why so often we do not commemorate the slaughters of indigenous peoples: There are too many sites from too many massacres, and to commemorate them all – even with an action so simple as that of a Catholic who reflexively makes the sign of the cross each time she encounters a cemetery – would afford little time for us to enjoy the comforts and elegancies civilization affords. I would wager every county in the United States has hosted at least one massacre, recorded or forgotten.”
– Derrick Jensen, The Culture of Make Believe

Hi, how about making a map of the Americas as a whole and Brazil in particular?
Reblogged this on Earth's Bloodstains.
How about adding Alaska and Hawaii?
We could add in the massacres of whites by natives to make a truly diverse map.
You might want to add a massacre the happened in NE Tennessee’s Unicoi County. Here is the reference:
