The decimation of the Indian population was caused by disease introduced by Europeans.

Then there was the push Westward and you couldn't very well settle the West when there were Indians there that were willing to fight to keep their land.

The number of of American Indians who were murdered because they wouldn't convert is...well...pretty darn small.

Most were killed as a result of disease and political decisions.

I realize this doesn't jibe with your disdain for Christianity but that's not my problem.
