It's really disheartening to hear people say "hey get over it", in reality can you say that about 9/11. Wouldn't the american people be offended if they were told "hey get over it".

I agree with Adam, we just want people to understand us, native people, the aboriginal people of this nation and what hurt and anquish our fore fathers went thru. What's so wrong with that? We teach US History in school don't we? What's the difference between George Washington and Chief Joseph? Both we're leaders, strong men with good hearts and loved the people whom they represented. They both loved and sacraficed the same way?

Congratulations Adam, you have achieved what every young native person dreams to achieve. You are an excellent role model for our young people.

The point is white america will never understand the in human treatment of people histories in this country. It's not about get over it. Just realize the steps your done to control other people cultures and beliefs.

To Alvin I address (and others). Not ALL white people will “never” understand. Not being born to Native blood, but I do not consider myself white (I am born of second generation Italian blood, and my family had nothing to do with the horrific thing the settlers did to many Nationalities; Native, Black, Chinese, Irish etc). I was suspended from history class many times, because my father taught me both sides of history, and I corrected the history teacher as to that was what the "white" history books wanted to teach us. This was in the 1960's. It is not a matter of "White" it is a matter "Right", of being taught right from wrong, and there are two sides to every story. My father taught me to live by the old saying “Never judge a man until you walked a mile in his Moccasins" so to speak. So when you say “white” preface it with “most whites”. Thank you. Besides, this is an Adam Beech forum!
