Create a short story based on the colonization of America.
After coming home after hearing of a positive meeting with the alien visitors (Europeans), my main character (Zana, 7 year old indigenous girl) goes to sleep with hopeful thoughts floating around in her head. She dreams of a utopian future, one where indigenous peoples and the alien settlers live peacefully alongside each other and together create a prosperous world for everyone.
