Of course. It wasn't just a fight for the land, Europeans dehumanized indigenous people like Germany did the Jews. I think you're severely understating the racist ideology underlying colonialism.

But the difference is they were able to fight back and successfully defend their lands for centuries, which makes it more of a war than a holocaust.

Sounds more like a difference in the ability to defend themselves between the Jews & the indigenous, not a difference in ideology between Nazis and Settlers.

The Soviets fought back and won, even though Slavs were targeted in the Holocaust and Generalplan Ost. Again, not just Jews. It was also a war of genocide.
