It was started by a missionary, had assimilationist views, and very few Oneidas actually attended, but it apparently had a big opening ceremony with lots of fanfare and lots of Native presence, and Hamilton was a founding trustee and, I mean, his name was on it.

He also overall advocated peace with the neighboring tribes, but also supported the military campaigns against them, so who knows. These are just a few basic points. How is this different? What could Hamilton have done to remedy this? But these moments add up, the erasure is real, both in contemporary society and historically, and has real implications.
But we should be taught, and there should be an expectation that Native peoples be included and respected—you are on Native land, after all. We are still here, and are still a part of this United States of America you plopped on top of us without our consent, and deserve to be recognized. I want a revelation! In a non-creepy way. If any actual historians want to weigh in with other facts or historic figures that should have been included, let me know! Thanks to Emma H.

Just snuck in a couple. Thank you for writing this! It was difficult for me to read because I love Hamilton so much, and because I think Miranda is a pretty woke guy in general ok, I have like the hugest crush on that man. Once was devastating enough. Miranda takes A LOT of liberties with the actual history in order to reshape the narrative mess of an actual human life into a more compelling narrative arc.
While I do agree with you that adding some sense of Native involvement in the history of the time would have been better, I suspect it was left out because Hamilton himself was never particularly noteworthy on the subject. All he really did for the Hamilton Onieda school was throw money at it. It is too bad if Natives are shut out of the narrative. As far as the actors, would you be able to identify a Native if there were one in the cast?
Native American ethnic and political diversity
One of my ancestors by marriage, in formed what today would be called a neighborhood watch group of black men in St. Louis, and named it the Attucks Guard, after Crispus. This is why Native voices have to keep speaking up. So thanks once again for your writings. It is a work of entertainment — not a history lesson.
Write your own musical and feature Native characters. Take this discussion seriously and expand on your point, please. Start with that. I see little difference in a fictional, magical wizarding world, and a fictional, dramaticized account of the life of one of the founding fathers.
If this had been a documentary on the founding of the United States I would very much want to see more representation of native people. This however, is a musical loosely based on Alexander Hamilton.
Meet the Natives
Someone who until this show caught fire was going to be removed from the ten dollar bill because the average American had no idea who he was. That being said, I do enjoy the show.
