Indians slaughtering the English near Jamestown
In stark contrast to the common depiction of Native Americans as 'Noble Savages', this print, from Gottfried's 'Newe Welt und americanische Historien', is a scene of violence. It depicts the 1622 Powhatan uprising, a series of attacks by the Powhatan Confederacy against English colonists. However, this was not intended to be an accurate representation of events. This image was used to legitimate the European attempts to exterminate Native American populations that followed.
