There were very few instances of scalping before the Europeans arrived. But then Europeans offered a bounty for the scalps of men, women and children. Most of the victims of scalping were native people, at the hands of Europeans who made money from doing this.
The idea that indigenous peoples engaged in this practice in any widespread manner pre-Contact is propaganda. This picture should show a white man scalping a native woman and her children for profit.
