As in the source entitled Hermans natives by Jim Unger “The implication is that Indians were savage headhunters. In reality, the Taino Indians who met Columbus were friendly and guileless—so much so that Columbus likened them to children”. Which connects when chief seattle states, “There is no quiet place in the whites man 's cities”.
