This video shows us that there is a great deal about slavery that most of us do not know.  In fact, it might be time for a re-education of black people about our history.  This video talks about black people being taken into slavery by native Americans, and the facts might astound you.  For one thing, it turns out that the native American slave masters were worse than the white ones.

In fact, the stories say that they were brutal.

Watching videos like this make you wonder just how much of our history has been lost due to poor educational systems.  Maybe we need to start educating ourselves and each other.

Watch this video, it’ll teach you a few things you don’t know.

  1. I wouldn’t be surprised. I have seen Black people with American Indian features.

  2. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from
    somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you

  3. Um, there was a time where BLACKS OWNED SLAVES. Read your history. Black people owned slaves in sub-Saharan Africa. Many of them sold their slaves to white slave traders or captured people to be sold into slavery. Not all blacks in the pre-Civil War USA were slaves. There were many mnay free black people and some of them also owned black slaves. That part gets left out by people who want to argue that the Civil War was about ending slavery and white oppression of blacks. In the ancient world slavery was common in all civilizations. If you are alive today, no matter what your ancestry is, you are most definitely descended from someone who was a slave. African Americans are not slaves now so they have nothing to complain about.

  4. The point is how the slaves were savagely treated by barbaric demons

  5. wow. you are woefully ill informed. the five civilized nations were forced to accept slavery or be made slaves themselves.(thats why they were called civilized, for accepting the agreement) the difference between the captivity of the blacks people in america is that they were stripped of the language nationality and culture. nowhere in human history has this been done to a people.

  6. I knew someone was going to get it confused and go there. If you really read my post SLAVERY IN AMERICA had nothing to do with my point or anything I was talking about even though the piece was on native Americans owning slaves. And whether you want to accept it or not THERE WERE BLACKS THAT SOLD BLACK SLAVES TO WHITE OWNERS. THAT WAS THE POINT I WAS MAKING.

  7. i understand your point. why the so-called five civilized nations took the deal should be further examined. its the same reason that blacks owned blacks.(so as not to be made slaves themselves)

  8. Very valid point.

  9. Turns out? When I saw this I was like DUH!, but where u got is wrong is by saying definitively that they were treated worse by natives which is not necessarily true but was case by case. But in order to get the full story u must also tell how some natives helped the Black slaves and how there were black Indian tribes an how they joined forces during fights against whites. Yes they owned slaves but they also had a relationship with Black people that the whites did not. (all u gotta do is search Black Indian tribes on the computer)

  10. You getting it all twisted. The so called "Five civilized tribes" were a tiny percentage of the indigenous population. Chattel slavery was invented and then imposed in the "Americas." First peoples generally resisted, others had no option but to somehow try to mitigate the white supremacy. And yet others were divided amongst against–of of it instigated by WHITE PEOPLE! Native Americans didnt make or own slave ships. Keep in my too that some AAs hunted down natives for the white man. And there was much more collaboration between Natives and Africans than is generally knowledge. We are on Indian land yet few of us bother to learn anything about Indian history.

  11. If you’re trying to paint all Native Americans as brutal slave masters, worse than white slave owners, you’re proving your own ignorance. Native Americans DID suffer more than black people, that’s a FACT! Any attempt to undermine this by saying Natives are evil slave owners is completely baseless.
    Let’s not forget that blacks are the #1 supporters of the Redskins name, openly admitting they don’t care about racial slurs against Native Americans.

    • Who ever sed black people are the biggest supporters of the term Redskin? Where are these facts? I am a 23 yr old black male and I have nothing but the utmost respect for Native Americans, so what you’re saying is a misguided generalization…and that’s fucked up. Watch you words and arrange them into sentences carefully.

      Are you even Native? Its hard to believe that an actual Native American would feel this way towards another oppressed people.

  12. The irony is that Blacks would say" their part Indiana and is proud of this…Stop it!!!

  13. There was a difference between a servant and a slave. A servant had to work for food, shelter, clothing and more because in ancient times, it was impossible to pay money (not currency) to the masses of laborers. A slave was what the Europeans and Middle-Eastern people adapted to the Africans and to some of the indigenous people of the Americas. The Europeans took it to a whole new barbaric, savage, hateful level all in the goal for white supremacy.

  15. okay a territory of native American were forced to have slaves well if they were not forced it would of happened in those times people were made to do a lot of things that they didn’t want to do to survive, so blacks were considered traders or uncle toms selling each other out and of course those were those that helped as well from all races black white native so lets stop with the finger pointing we all something mixed in us and are not proud of everything in the past but it is the present and the future that counts and right now native American people along with other minority groups have suffer a great deal in this country so lets stop trying to recount the past and deal with the present and the future to come I am native black and white and I don’t hold any bitterness towords my people in order for them to have survived back in those early times when we didn’t have the advancements that we have today so stop trying to stir up a past old issue and deal with the current issues that is surrounding people in general how but helping the problems instead of adding to them …….. let ye without sin cast the first stone in others words judge not unless ye want to be judge………

    • That is the problem now. We (Black people) don’t know all about of understand our history. We need to learn about our past so that we can, indeed, embrace our future.

  16. Itsonly Eye what about the slave mentality?

  17. Well, my entire family always knew “we had Indian in our family” (which I loathe saying) But my grandfather’s mother Mama Anna Elizabeth Knox….was Cherokee. Honestly until my grandfather died last July, I really don’t think he identified himself and being Black. He would say things like “us uneducated”….I dunno I guess he just identified more with his mother because as a boy my great grandfather Frank was so hard on them….very hard and had several families….so he got his comfort love, and good wit from his mother…..but I did hear him on the phone one day telling somebody….that one of his sisters from one of his father’s other family was a black lady….????? Uh…..Granddad, so are you! I guess he just did not see it that way…..

  18. Black Seminole Indians distinct ethnic group in 17 century Florida …. check the history ….

  19. Every race has been into slavery

  20. Most people don’t do enough research or they do just enough to satisfy the urge to have a short dialogue with ppl.We inhabited the whole of the Americas before anything else could ever exist on this planet,this uneducated conversation about our ppl is saying to me just that we still have a long way to go when it comes to knowing our STORY!All of you have points whether you know it or not BUT you need a black person to create any and all races under the SUN so with that being said we existed long before a species called the Indian here,if you just pay attention to old photos you could get a CLUE as to who the Indian was before he knew who he REALLY was and changed his race.

  21. Slavery was a part of early American society,period. No one holds the moral high ground exclusively.

  22. True slavery has existed throughout human history. When are Blacks in America every going to be stop being looked on as the ancestors of slaves? It's painful and no one cares or notices.Its just dismissed as now "using the race card". We are just now strong enough to reclaim our ancestry. In our strength we are learning about ourselves and others. This is what I feel scares many. "Knowledge is power".

  23. Having to do American history as a foreign national, I recently was shocked to learn that. Also the history of how Hawaii came into the hands of the USA by kidnapping and force. This country has been brutal to everyone of color. Although the Indians owned us also, they didn’t fare well with whites for their land. Whites took what they wanted and killed who resisted . Welcome the good olé USA.

  24. Does A Plains Indian believe that the owner of the team will change the name because people are upset? The team has had that name for years so this is not a new issue, whether blacks support or are against the name they have no power. So don’t fight them about something the Indian nations can’t get them to change.

  25. This is propaganda. It’s manipulation of history. Things are taken out of proportion, to somehow make someone else share in the negative history of slavery. I am part Cherakee and other tribes, and black, and I feel insulted to hear such rubbish. In other words…there’s alot more to Our history than this BS post…

  26. Cherokee Nation were one of the 1st to accept Africans as slaves. The Cherokee' wanted very much to assimilate but as always, the white man tricked them too, and that was part of why "The Trail of Tears", were so emotionally moving because they too were betrayed by the whites.

  27. Yes that true but slavery in africa and slavery in america was different. Slaves in africa was not treated harshly like the slaves in america and were eventually let go. Read multicultural america it gives u the background on that type of slavery too. The black people who sold slaves to white people didnt know the harshness they were going to endure and thought they had the same rules the had but they didnt.

  28. Dude , guess you did not get the memo, Blacks owned Slaves in this Nation.

  29. But i am my grand Father's mother was half Indian, plus my grandFather was born on a Indian Resavation, in Mississippi.
    Question Sir are you proud to call yourself a ameriKKKan? If so why?

  30. Lee Goode Jr. You say " you part Engine" with pride. But can you do the same as a descendant of your slaves ancestors?

  31. Ronald Blair
    Hell no.
    The Injunz and Us have a shared ENEMY.
    I oppose Slavery regardless of the MASSa's skin color.
    Dude you re questioned Me without answering mine first.

  32. Lee, I'm proud to call myself a descendant of the slaves that built this nation and every other country in the world. Why be something that your not. I look at your profile pic and see a wonder Black family. The Indian in you have been totally assimilated by the Black Negroid genes.
