Video: The Momentous Encounter: Columbus Meets the Indigenous
Dear brothers and sisters,
On Oct 12th, 1492 Columbus landed on the tiny island of San Salvador in the Outer Bahamas. He encountered the Arawak people. With awe and even affection they welcomed Columbus and his men to their island paradise.
They were generous, gracious and kind. They had nothing to hide: they danced about in their birthday suits. Could there be a greater contrast with the rigid, blocked, heavily armored and defended Europeans?
Indeed the Arawak were a sort of mirror for just how estranged the Europeans had become. It proved too much; the Arawak had to be destroyed; and so they were driven to extinction. The destruction of the Arawak people was a kind of dress rehearsal, so to speak, for what was to befall the indigenous throughout the New World.
Please accept our good wishes for vibrant good health to you and your family,
