Andrew Jackson’s Adopted Indian Son

Lyncoya was a living argument for the supremacy of the white way of life. Jackson killed Creek people, took Creek land, and raised their children as his own—a primal act of domination.
The soldiers took 84 captives, including Lyncoya.

Was bringing home an Indian boy—after slaughtering his family—an act of compassion or of political expedience?



By Trace Hentz

I know the answer - psychopaths and politics for land theft!
A few days ago, my friend John Hopkins told me about the infamous "Indian Killer" Andrew Jackson, yes that guy famous for the Trail of Tears, adopting an Indian child.  I never knew about this.
We do know that Lost Bird (below) was taken from her massacred dead mother and adopted by a military man. She only lived to age 29.
Lyncoya died at the Hermitage in 1828, at age 16, of tuberculosis.
Andrew Jackson named all his kids Andrew Jackson? That's a very special kind of egomania right there.

 In case you didn't know, adoption was genocide.

ADOPTION TRUTH

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Our Fault? (no)
