2.) His "voyage" initiated the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade when he captured 1600 Taino people and shipped them to Spain for gold. Most died on the journey.
3.) Columbus sold indigenous girls into sex slavery for his own personal profit. He journaled, โ€œThere are plenty of dealers who go about looking for girls; those from nine to ten are now in demand.โ€

In fourteen hundred ninety two
Columbus sailed the ocean blue
It was a courageous thing to do
But someone was already there!

Happy #IndigenousPeoplesDay2019!
๐ŸŽถThe Inuit &Cherokee,
The Aztec & Menominee
The Onandaga & the Cree
Columbus sailed across the sea,
But someone was already here.
It isnt like it was empty space
Caribs met him face to face.
Could anyone discover the place When someone was already here?๐ŸŽถ

My wife learned this song in First Grade in San Francisco and it remains one of my favorite things she has taught me.
