How did colonists’ treatment of indigenous people help cause today’s tribalism

The Treaty of Waitangi promised New Zealand its own Emancipation Proclamation more than a score of year before Lincoln’s– and we’ve ended up instead 175 years later barrelling down a path back to tribalism.

Could it have been different? Apply Yaron Brook’s answer to NZ, where colonisation was far less violent in America, and the answer surely has to be “Yes.”
