About 'the1492guy'About Dave Patterson – a.k.a ‘the1492guy’

Dave Patterson’s subject is ‘Dispelling the Myths of 1492’. He inspires by retelling actual histories, so the audience realizes that all European settlers and Indians were peers and co-equals – but then people forgot.

These real-life events are compelling: Europeans who did not bathe, had poor health, disease & poor diet; Western Hemisphere healthy and eating well; the first true democracy; a 700-year-old transportation system with 225,000 kilometers of roadway; gifts of 75% of our world’s foods; the genesis of women’s rights; 1000+ pyramids; they had large populations and the land was taken already; bigger cities than Europe; our concepts of freedom and liberty there’s hundreds of these well-documented accounts.

Because little of this may be on your radar, you are able to look at your own day today, and recognize the extraordinary number of Indian gifts to the world. We love our way of life, so ‘the1492guy’s listeners and readers are challenged to go out and transform some worldviews and attitudes. They feel better and more guilt-free. The audience members can then experience their own personal truth and reconciliation.
