Before Columbus is a series of three films, "Invasion", "Conversion" and "Rebellion", which describe the Indian experience in the Americas during the past five hundred years. Part One, "Invasion", tells the real story of Columbus's "discovery" of the Americas, a story not often found in the history books. The film describes the seizure of territory on two continents from the Arctic to the tip of Tierra del Fuego, an attack against Native people that continues to this day, from the flooding of Cree lands in Canada for hydro development, and the destruction of the Florida Everglades of the Seminole, to the clearing of the Amazon rainforest of the Panara in Brazil.
