Explore how the US government hunted bison to near-extinction in the 1800s to force Native Americans onto reservations.

--

By the mid-1700s, many Plains nations survived on North America’s largest land mammals: bison. They ate its meat, made the hides into winter coats and blankets, and used the bones and horns for tools. But in the following decades, millions of bison would be deliberately slaughtered, threatening the survival of Plains societies. Andrew C. Isenberg shares what led to the animal's near-extinction.

Lesson by Andrew C. Isenberg, directed by Rémi Cans, Atypicalist.

The long and brutal history of the US trying to “kill the Indian and save the man”.

Help our reporting on hidden histories. Submit a story idea here: http://bit.ly/2RhjxMy

Toward the end of the 19th century, the US took thousands of Native American children and enrolled them in off-reservation boarding schools, stripping them of their cultures and languages. Yet decades later as the US phased out the schools, following years of indigenous activism, it found a new way to assimilate Native American children: promoting their adoption into white families. Watch the episode to find out how these two distinct eras in US history have had lasting impacts on Native American families.

In the Vox series Missing Chapter, Vox Senior Producer Ranjani Chakraborty revisits underreported and often overlooked moments from the past to give context to the present. Join her as she covers the histories that are often left out of our textbooks. Our first season tackles stories of racial injustice, political conflicts, even the hidden history of US medical experimentation.

PBS Utah takes a moving and insightful look into the dark chapter of American history, the federal Indian boarding school system. The goal was total assimilation into Anglo civilization at the cost of Native American culture, tradition, and language. The film story starts with pre-history and comes full circle to modern day. Much of the film is told in first person Native American voice by the people who continue to live it.

Episode #3 the History of Haiti: Roots
by Mikelson Toussaint-Fils

After the arrival of the Spaniards in 1492, the native Taino population dwindled due to the hard work and diseases brought by the Europeans. To exploit the island's resources, the Spanish and French forcibly brought African slaves to Haiti. The slaves rebelled and in 1804 declared their independence, founding the world's first black republic. The majority of black Haitians today are of West African descent, with significant roots among the Fon, Akan, Yoruba, Igbo, Kongo, and Mandinka peoples.
In this episode, we will take a detour through Africa to better understand the ethnic origins and history of the Africans who will take possession of the island of Haiti after the Battle of Vertière.

The Story of Boukman - Boukman was a key leader of the slave revolt in the Le Cap‑Français region in the north of the colony. He was killed by the French planters and colonial troops on 7 November 1791,[3][4] just a few months after the beginning of the uprising. The French then publicly displayed Boukman's head in an attempt to dispel the aura of invincibility that Boukman had cultivated. The fact that French authorities did this illustrates their belief in the importance Boukman held to Haitian people during this time.

In the late eighteenth century, the French colony of Saint Domingue teetered on an unstable social pyramid. At the top of the hierarchy were wealthy white plantation owners who enslaved the vast majority of the island’s population: hundreds of thousands of enslaved Africans and their descendants. New ideas about natural rights swirled around the Atlantic world and reached the people of Saint Domingue—including enslaved people—and helped launch the most radical of the Atlantic revolutions. But the fight didn’t end with independence, as the new nation of Haiti continued to struggle for its survival and the end of slavery.

Why would Kenya and some Caribbean countries agree to send police to Haiti as part of an imperial occupation project? Jemima Pierre explains how the global dynamics of race distort our understanding of ourselves and each other as black people worldwide. The conversation discusses in detail the fact that racism organizes the current world order, and the misconception of many Africans that racism only applies to South Africa and the United States.
