Indians

Jefferson’s attitude toward Indians was always profound. In his Notes On Virginia he devoted a chapter to a celebration of the Indigenous Culture of America’s original inhabitants. He called were victims of history [but they are only words].

However, we will never know what he truly thought. We only see the results of his decisions that deported massive segments of Indian populations to land west of the Mississippi. I sensed a bit of over-posturing here. But that’s only my opinion.

A nameless scholar on the subject stated in part: …the seeds of extinction of the Native American Culture were sown under Jefferson’s watch.
