I posted this over (3) years ago regarding the observation of Columbus Day. Update: is the change of name and celebration to Indigenous Day. Quick story of the other side of History and to commemorate and remember the indigenous people that lived in this country before us.

In the early years of Columbus’ conquest’s very little is talked about his hands in the massacre of the many indigenous people who’s body parts were found in butcher shops throughout the Caribbean, chopped up to be sold as dog food.

During this period, a practice known as the “Montería Infernal” translation; “Infernal Chase” (manhunts) in which enslaved Indians that had escaped or those that were released were hunted for fun by War dogs as a sport to appease those in charge.
.
.

Dogs were protected by armor vest and spiked collars to protect against weapons that could be used against them. To add insult to injury, the flesh of humans were fed to incite the dogs and in some cases in front of horrified parents their babies were fed to punish the people.
.
.

This is a gruesome side of how dogs served a purpose in history and what little was taught to us in schools about the day that we’ve been indoctrinated to celebrate with admiration when we we’re children.
