Kingdom of the Sun and Christopher Columbus

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday, I had the honor and joy of being a guest poster on Miss Ananda’s blog in a post titled Kingdom of the Sun, 10/14, and Education. In that post I discuss the very interesting relation between my book, Kingdom of the Sun and Columbus Day (10/14). I guarantee it’s a great read! Please check it out at the second link or select this one.

Peace and Love,

Ariffa

  1. History always have its bias based on the historian. Just like it is said that Mungo Park discovered River Niger. as if it came from his laboratory. I love history but it is vexing to see people praising many notorious and evil acts for seemingly national or race glory.
    where are the original Americans?

    • Very well said!! As the great African proverb goes: “until the lion has a historian, the hunter will always be the hero.” Yet, I wonder, who decided to make Columbus into a glorified hero?

      Thank you for your great question. I think I know the answer but I’m not too sure. It will take some research for an “official” response.

  2. I have read the reviews and I myself am most interested in reading and reviewing it. When I do so, I will be sure to post it on my blog. The herofication of this man is criminal.

    • Yes, I completely agree with you.

      I truly do hope you enjoy Kingdom of the Sun. I look forward to reading what you think about it. The theme of distorting history (as with Columbus) is very prominent.
