    Hard to know specifically, but "Red Indian" and "Red Man" refer to two possibilities: 1) the First Nations/Native Americans are supposed to have red skin, though many do not and 2) some North American Indigenous populations actually skinned their opponents in various inter-tribal wars, leaving the bodies red with blood and exposed tissue. Further, the reference to the Truth would likely be aknowledgement of the maltreatment of the Native Americans/First Nations, the horrid massacres of whites by some tribes, and the erroneous portrayal of Thanksgiving Pilgrms (a propaganda piece later added) and beheading of Indians a bit after the Plymouth meal. And many other historical atrocities.
