Thanksgiving in the Manhattan Colony
In 1641 the Dutch governor Kieft of Manhattan offered the first “scalp
bounty”–his government paid money for the scalp of each Indian brought to them.
A couple years later, Kieft ordered the massacre of the Wappingers, a friendly tribe. Eighty were killed and their severed heads were kicked like soccer balls down the streets of Manhattan. One
captive was castrated, skinned alive and
forced to eat his own flesh while the Dutch governor watched and
Then Kieft hired the notorious Underhill who had commanded in the Pequot war to carry out a similar massacre near Stamford, Connecticut. The village was set fire, and 500 Indian residents were put to the sword. A day of thanksgiving was proclaimed in the churches of Manhattan.
The European colonists declared
Thanksgiving Days to celebrate mass murder more often than they did for
harvest and friendship.
