One of the greatest campaigns against humanity occurred right here in Ohio in the United States of America.


 

 

Ohio Genocide

 

They want our land

And they want us gone

That’s all there is to know

 

This is what

An Indian said,

Yes many tears ago

 

A genocide

That’s still denied;

Now Ohio is theirs no more

 

The Ottawa, Seneca,

Shawnee and Pawnee

Are lost from our history’s lore

 

But their names are found

On cities and towns;

As if we have no shame

 

Their images lampooned

And faces cartooned

On cigar boxes and logos for games

 

So cry for Logan and Tecumseh,

Little Turtle, Blue Jacket,

And other Chiefs

 

They fought valiantly

Protecting their country

They died in defense of their beliefs.

Sadly the Indian was treated badly by white man's greed

But their names are found
On cities and towns;
As if we have no shame

Our shame is not only in Ohio, it's sadly nationwide.
