Of course they do! I like the Canadian approach much better myself. There is just more respect there.

Actually, you owe your life to them since these wild injuns saved your pewtooty!

Or you would not be here in the states nor would it be the states and you'd be living in some god forsaken English hut still owned by the crown heads of Europe, ha!

So be prepared to bow in the presence of these Native Americans!

The white man took the country from the Indians and has given it to every other race that wants a piece of it(especially in the last 15 years). Now, the white man is on the bottom of the totem pole(myself included). If these Indians want recognition, they should have it.

I think it's time to recognize Virginia's Native tribes like so many have been already.These people have suffered enough indignities throughout the history of our country,to deny them recognition would just be the icing on the cake.

Kudos for you!

But I haven't figured out why WASP are now on the bottom of the totem pole!!

But we can thank our government for our current situation for why WASP are sitting on the back seat of the bus!!

Every WASP out there is now unemployed while their wives are barely working, too!!
