They're will never be a retribution big enough. Never. I'm glad that you were able to save your marriage. If I were you I would have done the same. You did get a son and that is something you should never regret. I was still to young to appreciate who and what I was in '78. I look at my family's history and can only hurt and weep for all the atrocities that were co.omitted against the native peoples. The American people should still be shamed by the actions of others. Because the natives were treated less than a slave. Black people have no idea what is to be seen less valuable than a stray dog. Don't get me wrong slavery was wrong completely . Sorry doesn't cover what happened to the black people. There does come a time to let it go and move on. However how can the native people of this country let it go when the government insists on keeping native peoples downtrodden. I have never seen movies in Hollywood made about cowboys fighting the dreaded Jews or Negros or chinamen. Its always cowboys and Indians and the red man is always the bad guy. They are also portrayed as ignorant and foolish. If a movie about Negros was even attempted there would be a huge uproar from all people. Native people are still portrayed as savages. To some degree they were. But only after learning to fight against those with guns and armor. The did savage things sometimes but so did every other people in the world. We are a misunderstood and misrepresented race.
Extremly well said and very heartfelt. I'm sorry for your pain. Truly. If white America ever wants to understand it's history, it will be a good day. European students study "American" history.(100 million dead Indians.) We study German history.(6 million dead Jews.) Either way, Europeans suck.

Anybody here remember "One Tin Sldier?" Sacheen Little Feather? NOT Billy Jack? Will Sampson in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest? John Trudell? Leonard Peltier? Chief Joseph? Standing Bear? Andrew Jackson? Thought I'd throw that up to make sure someone is awake.....

Actually I am a 16th indian... have no idea what tribe nor do I really care... We are all American and should all do our fair share. I notice that none of you are from Oklahoma where the tribes are bleeding the state dry. They have ran ever small retail operation out of business because they don't charge taxes on cigarettes and no one can have a Casino but indians?? Whats up with that. I have no doubt the Native Americans were done wrong by our great great grand parents but why do our youth have to suffer. Oklahoma has the 48th lowest paid teachers in the nation, why? because we loose most of our tax revenue due to Native American... I don't buy my cigarettes there because I won't support them but why would people.. they are at least a dollar a pack cheaper. I don't hate indians, my grandmother was a half and my brother-in-law is a great great grand son of Quanha Parker.. my point is, when is the charity going to stop? I know a lot of Native Americans that work hard but I also know a lot that sit on their back side and let the rest of us take care of them, thats no more right than any other race doing that including whites. We are all Americans no matter what prefix you put in front of it.
Cigs.. That's what you care about? Maybe you should consider that the native americans are going extinct today because of the injustice done to them yesterday. The reservations are poverty stricken jokes, and native americans only refuse to leave them because it's the little land they have left. Who cares if you're a tiny bit native American, you're a joke

Who the hell are you responding to? And did you even take the time to read my post??? IM AGAINST the freaking hand outs for the natives! I said i COULD carry a status card and spend tax payers money on unnecessary things like these leeches seem to love to do, but oh wait, i AM one of those hard working tax payers! Why dont you take a second to actually review what it is you are firing your big pie hole off about. You just made yourself look like a fool.. Eh, Good job der buddy!
Here's to NOT justifying your next response with another; you cant be bothered to take the time for an appropriate debate in the first place anyhow..
You show your history well. Who made the Indians a Welfare class?
Has nothing to do with taking away their livlihood?? As in damming up their rivers and cutting them off? Stopping their way of life and now that they embrace your white tradition of drinking you condemn them as well. You create a welfare society by shame and taking away any opportunities, then comdemn them. You know nothing of Your own History or how subgujated people will become socially. You are as much of a monster as your murderous relatives. Kudos you genocide FreAk!

Yes. The roots of all Human DMA has been traced to Africa. It is a matter of migration worldwide from Mother Africa.
We are all cut from the same cloth. We all bleed red.

WTF? Where have all the responders with a clue gone? Blackheart? Whereforeart Thou? Jesus Krispies! This post has gone to the whities. The ones who read "Amrican History" by Simon & Shuster. "Do Native Americans have any relation to the people that are in Alaska?" REALLY? Are you serious? "The roots of all Human DMA....?" "Do Native Americans have any relation to the people that are in Alaska?" Hmmm. Ask Sara Palin. Did NA's give restitution to those they drove out prior to themselves? Huh? And who were they? Jeez! Brain dead American zombies unite!! Follow the Bering Strait Land Bridge east.... Don't stop. Keep marching. Hallelujah. Amen. PTL. Spay and neuter your surviving children. Don't forget their vaccinations.

Who, exactly, did the NA's drive out? The Chinese? The Jews? The Italians? How, pray tell, does or could, or would that forgive the Euro invaders of this hemisphere???? Huh?

Perhaps the Homo neanderthalensis who came to North America via the Alskan bridge from Asia? AKA Chinese. It is theorized the Native "Americans" originated from Asia (China).
Better yet blame it all on Africa where the human DNA originated.
What up Bro man??
Food for thought. Isn't it a misnomer to call the indigenous peoples "Native Americans" since they were here long before "America" existed? Hmmm.. Guess NA sounds more PC than IP. ;-)

Peace
Peace. You baffle me. "We, the governments of Great Britain and the United States, in the name of India, Burma, Malaya, Australia, British East Africa, British Guiana, Hong Kong, Siam, Singapore, Egypt, Palastine, Canada, New Guam, the Philippines, Hawaii, Alaska and the "Virgin" Islands, hereby declare most emphatically, that this is NOT an imperialist war." Fortunately, it was the opening line of a skit. circa 1939. Ha ha. So funny. The Chinese circumnavigated the world in 1421. Columbus feigned Catholicism,(he was a Jew), and the so called lost Roanokes ended up being mere cannibals, obsessed, like most Americans, with GOLD! Yee Haw!

Any old BS to deflect from the truth of Imperialism and all the Peoples it has exterminated. How about this lifetime? Justifying your history with nonsense therories are ya? good luck idiot. Trying to justify all the genocides done in my lifetime by some ridiculous theory of centuries ago. You guys will reach for the stars. But your day comes.
