In the winter of 1763, the Paxton “boys” murdered 20 Susquehannock Indians at Conestoga Indian Town and then at the Lancaster jailhouse. This was targeted murder. They had their land taken away and, basically, their entire way of life. It disappeared. When they faced ethnocide and genocide, they didn’t have a newspaper where they could tell their own story. We live by telling our children, by telling the truth and telling the stories. It’s really about shedding light onto the Native people as the primary characters in the book. To foreground the Indigenous people at the center of this story is a real act of defiance. The accountability that we have in history is critical.
