About the film

What people are saying

This video allows the viewer to hear Indians speaking for themselves with passion and conviction. 'Columbus Didn't Discover Us' is an important and valuable testimonial from voices too long suppressed."

Lisa Mitten (Mohawk)

American Indian Library Association

Extremely relevant to the current social justice reforms happening throughout the United States. Viewing of this film can “kick-start” much needed conversations pertaining to the revising of our educational process and discussions around the shared Indigenous and colonizer/settler histories.

Dr. Deirdre Almeida (Lenape/Shawnee)

American Indian Studies Program, Eastern Washington University

The naked truth of the Columbus legacy is revealed. A must for the classroom.
