In the article by Andrea Smith, Natives Americans were violated in many ways by colonial settlers in the U.S. Two main reasons, was because they were "dirty" and "immanently polluted with sexual sin" (smith 10). the way of life of natives were also judged in a degrading manor by how they dressed and their cultural practices. The link to Native american being sexual was from the settles associating native american with Canaanites from the bible.
with these excuses, Native Americans were seen "rapable" and violable because "they" are to entitled to bodily integrity. Some of the stories said how the bodies were dug up and put on show, their (human) skin was used in a way we would use animal hide, a females genitals were cut off to be used as commodities. native Americans were not seen as humans but things or animals. Their bones and skulls were used for science with out permission, and their bodies put on show or mutilated and killed off.
The suffering of Native Americans became internalized and they don't want to be native american anymore. Their people, culture, pride, and land was taken with out recognition. They are still suffering today and it still doesn't get noticed or corrected by society. It is still legally ok for for native american women to get raped and abused.
