Ward Churchill was a professor at the University of Kolorado-Denver; in fact, he was the head of the Ethnic Studies Department. One would think that Ward would have a pretty good understanding of First Nation histories seeing as that was his area of academic expertise, right? Well, since Ward didn’t want to chime on about how this ‘Indian’ invented so and so and how this ‘Indian’ is important because of yada yada -because he told the truth about how 97-99% of North Americans were murdered by European settlers and their settler states and how to this day Amerikkka commits similar crimes, he has come under the attacks of both the school administration and the more fascistic white-nationalist elements of Amerikkkan SSociety.
