1491: New Revelations of the Americas before Columbus by Charles C. Mann
1491: New Revelations of the Americas before Columbus

martola, August 2, 2007

I'm impressed with the information in this book. I feel very fortunate Charles C. Mann put toghether this information into this book. There's one thing I strongly disagree with Mann on this book-his claim that some Natives prefer to be called Indian instead of "Native Americans" is at most a "stupidaggine" (absurdity) as the that name was concocted by ignorance! The very ignorance of Christoforo Colombo or "Cristobal Colon" who thought he had landed in India. Why do we continue to perpetuate ignorance is unknown to me. Unless, of course, immigrants from other lands now want to claim the title for themselves! I'm sure it wouldn't matter now, they took everything else already from Native Peoples...
