Seeking $250 Reward, Settlers Hunted For 'Redskin Scalps' During Extermination Effort - Indian Country Media Network
A news story, dated October 9, 1885, reveals further evidence that the word ‘redskin’ was not historically spoken in reverence for Native Americans, but instead as an identifier during extermination efforts.

The clip, published by the Atchison Daily Champion in Atchison, Kansas, tells of settlers in Arizona fanning out across the state to “hunt for redskins, with a view of obtaining their scalps.” Scalps taken from the bodies of dead Indians were valued at $250, according to the report.

The campaign was allegedly launched in an effort to end the Apache Wars – a period between the mid to late 19th century when the Apache resisted American encroachment and the imposed reservation system.
