It’s funny how we humans manufacture history. We all grew-up being told that sometime in the 1620’s these wonderful Christian Pilgrims came to America, that was before any border walls, to practice their love for baby Jesus without being persecuted.
So! they saw some G-dless “Injuns” and decided that before they and other Europeans slaughtered untold numbers of diverse people that constituted the Native American, that they should come over and sample some of their cuisine. Well it was a smash, not quite like an office -Xmas party that everyone gets shit faced and end up in bed, but a hootenanny nonetheless.
We know how this tale ended, we took their land and they got casinos–win win.
Ok, so this is not what we learned in school, but it’s closer to reality, no?
