The Gift

The gift of the Mohawks

for they were betrayed

keepers of the eastern door

ancestral lands

appropriated

🌑

The gift of the Incas

for they were plundered

the four regions

gold and treasures

confiscated

🌑

We can go on

and

on

and

on

🌑

The gift of old Cultures

for they were destroyed

mankind didn’t care

history and knowledge

demolished

    Great post. So much gets destroyed during colonization, and then we mostly end up focusing on the future instead of the aftermath. So much history lost. It’s sad. We could learn so much from ancient cultures. They were ahead of their time in many ways.
