FYI: Lynette Mullen is a local freelance writer and project manager. A chance discovery of court records from 1862 ignited her passion for history; learning about the indenture of Native Americans in California during the gold rush further fueled this interest. She is honored to be able to share this information with the TedX audience.
I read Colorado students and teachers are protesting now that history curriculum is rife with errors, inaccuracies, not teaching America’s own atrocity. If we don’t teach truth and history, we are doomed to repeat it… Lara
