The indians did have guns, rifles and ammo. The would steal little white children and then SELL them back to their families ~ that is IF the indians hadn't killed their families.<quoted text> Sorry but facts speak for themselves. The american indian lost almost every battle with the white man because he was not armed properly to defend himself. They didn't make guns or have money to buy guns. They didn't make powder or bullets and didn't have money to buy them. When they begain fighting the white man they had a stick with a rock on it. When they did aquire firearms and ammo the ammo was soon depleted making the gun useless. The american indian outnumbered the white man at over a thousand to one in the beginning so the FACT they could not defend themselves properly was the reason they were almost annihilated. History has shown over and over those who don't have the ability to defend themselves eventually are enslaved or slaughtered by the more powerful. Now do you want to show the american indian driving the severely out numbered white man off their land and back to europe with their better guns or do you want ketchup and salt with your statement?
A stick with a rock on it would take down enormous buffalo. Indians were excellent shots. As soon as they could walk~they were taught how to be a warrior.
The indians GAVE UP because they were starving, freezing and their enemies were getting much better fire power. Oh, and a few of their leaders were very savvy/street smart. One of the savvy leaders (Quannah Parker) built a very nice house with all the modern conveniences (telephone etc) and became a fairly rich guy. He wore suits and entertained the president in his house. Quanah's mother was white. Cynthia Ann Parker. You should read about her. Pretty interesting. After the indians kidnapped her~they liked her~so they kept her. And she liked them.
Tracyvon ~ I don't eat/slurp ketchup nor do I use salt. How about an excellent vegan meal? I could go for that!
