Morning Show Features the True History of Columbus

by: Jessica Harrington
          Educator and descendant of the Arawak/Yurumein Nation, Claudia Fox Tree will visit “The Morning Show” on Thursday, October 8th.
          Host Mary Jacobsen will interview Fox Tree about her efforts to “un-erase” the history of Native American First Nations People, including bringing into focus the brutal enslavement of indigenous people by Christopher Columbus, the exposure of which has led many states and municipalities to celebrate Indigenous People’s Day instead of Columbus Day.
          Fox Tree will also explain the historical impacts of the “Doctrine of Discovery” and “Manifest Destiny,” and how these legal and ideological inventions re-cast the appropriation and conquest of already occupied territories in the Americas as the righteously acquired possessions of European and later U.S. “explorers” and conquerors.  For more information on Fox Tree’s research, visit
