American Heritage magazine, Dec. 1968. volume XX number 1. A fair story about how Cornplanter lost Oil City due to white man fraud, how all promises were broken. To celebrate victimization seems wrong to me. Cornplanter was promised things in writing by George Washington, all promises were ignored. No cause for celebration with that example. Is the writer of the article in high school or just high?

Steve, you have made very good points in your post. Many folks have absolutely no idea the fraud that was committed against Chief Cornplanter and the Seneca nation of indians. Your governor and all of his predecessors continue the fraud. Here in Ohio, our governor and all his predecessors are just as guilty as Rendell & Co. only with the Shawnee. I have been to the Cattaraugus & Allegany Indian Reservations and I have never met a more decent or honorable group of people than them. The only other people that I have met that are equally descent and honorable on their reservation are the Navajo. I have not been to other reservations, but I suspect that they too, are just as good.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
