Excerpt from The Contributions of the American Indian to Civilization

Four hundred years have come and gone since the land fall of Columbus, and though the mild Lucayans who first greeted him have long since disappeared from mortal ken, there still dwell in the United States and Canada some four hundred thousand of the race he made known to the Orient, to say nothing of the vastly more numerous Indian population of Mexico, Central and South America, estimated at from fifteen to twenty millions, not including m tis or mixed-bloods.

But their lot has been a hard one. Mexico, Central America and Peru were, apparently, arrested on the high way to the development of an indigenous culture of a noteworthy type, and elsewhere over the broad area of the double-continent the breath of the higher race has blasted the life of the lower. To the age of Spanish slaughter and oppression, imitated so closely sometimes by the early colonists of other nationalities, has been added that century of dishonor, whose gratuitous prolonga tion we have even now before our eyes, as the records of recent investigations not yet complete abundantly demonstrate.
