They looked out at the three Spanish ships and thought, “Those are the biggest canoes, we’ve ever seen, but we didn’t think the Gods smelled like that.
On the flagship, Christopher Columbus after the cry of “Land Ho” said “I smell people, and my they smell bad.”

“Come out come out wherever you are, I know you’re out there!” Columbus shouted. Then he took a scroll out and told the natives what their future will be.
This is the New World Order. You will bring us all your gold. Then you will dig up the island. You will work for us, priests will make you Christian and at least if we work you to death, your souls will be saved.”
“They plan to rob us, one Indian said to another.”
“Keep your voice down,” another hissed.
Too late, Columbus heard, you know the rest.
