I was just watching ...



... a rollicking old western - Major Dundee - Richard Harris and Charlton Heston against the Apache and I couldn't help but wonder - would america be in the mess it is in today if the settlers had simply learned to ive with the great Indian Nations instead of trying to steal their land and exterminate them ?

It seems to me that native americans have had and, maybe, are still having a really raw deal. Ethnic cleansing wholesale!!

Even the much vaunted JFK reneged on promises and stole land from the Seneca to build the Kinzua Dam.

Do we have any Native Americans in here?

I am a native American because I was born here.

BobbyKat is of Native American ancestry.

I think Redwolf mentioned some Native American heritage, but I don't remember if it was in his bloodline, or his wife's. Would you care to remind us, Redwolf?

It would appear that wherever the Brits have settled, the natives were dispossessed. However, in history this has always occured. You'd think that we would have learnt by now.
