“Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.”

What does this proverb mean?

The hunter is the man. The lions are the animals that will never have their story told. The hunter will always be seen as the good guy because he is the winner. Only the stories of winners are told.

List an example to which you think this proverb applies too:

            I think this proverb applies to the story of Christopher Columbus. Although he helped discover America, there were already people on the land, the Native Americans. And Christopher Columbus went into America and slaughter, hurt, and raped the natives.
