Before crucifying me for saying so, understand I make this supposition on the sheer logic of history. Look at how native people have been treated in the more than 500 years of Christian colonization.
I am, of course, speaking of the physical, sexual and emotional abuse perpetrated by church-run residential schools, smallpox-carrying Jesuit missionaries,
the banning of sun dances and potlatches because they lured aboriginal peoples away from Christianity, and so on.
