Immigrants from central asia?
I guess they preferred to scalp, torture and cannibalize each other.
meh. screw ‘em. plymouth isn’t our creation story anyway. its jamestown, a failed corporate venture where infighting and jealousies led the settlers to eat their neighbors (hopefully) after they starved to death.
now, that’s good ol’ american competition, right there.
Just the typical white guilt fed college ‘Indian’ propaganda.
The Pilgrims and the Indians lived in peace for 50 years. The peace was broken when a faction of Indians attacked the white settlers, as part of a civil war among the Indians.
Indian vs. Indian: Pre European Native American Warfare; Plains; Lakota Sioux
Two dozen Elizabeth Warren leftists with man buns are mourning while millions of Americans who claim Native American ancestry will be eating turkey and celebrating.
Screw them if they can’t take a joke.
If they don’t like it they can give up modern surgery, electricity, prnicillon, cars, heated homes, etc and live in a teepee.
Probably the same nuts from the pipeline protest. Professional warpath warriors.
More media-orchestrated “news.”
Can you say “wag the dog?”
Mourning is a natural reaction to disease and oppression. But being left the heck alone was not an option. Anerica is a resource-rich land and the French had also invaded. The Native Americans were better off with the Brits. Look at French colonies like Haiti. We got lucky.
Every “Native American” nation migrated after they had depleted game stock. The Sioux came all the way from Virginia for goodness’ sakes. The Choctaw from Canada. And on the way, they wiped each other out. They did not always live in harmony with nature and they CERTAINLY did not live in harmony with each other. All this, and drunk meth addicts (and manufacturers) on the reserve? “Pilgrim’s fault.”
Not this one -food, family, friends & booze !
I thought they did this stuff on Columbus Day.
What a bunch of Debbie Downers.
They should be grateful for the abundance of blessings God gives them ‘today’.....
Here shut the “f” up and have some stuffing.
I have Native American Indian in my ancestry ... YES INDIAN! Because they still call themselves Indians.
There are known Mohican persons in my past who married and are buried on family plots in North Carolina.
This victimization of Native American Indians is more of the revisionist anti-white mindset that has to pop up at every opportunity by a liberal press that feels the need to foment never-ending discord.
My brother’s wife, my sister-in-law, is Half-German, Half-Cherokee, and her tribe can show up by the dozens at any moment. I let them know we are family first and I won’t tolerate victimization sob stories and regrets from any family member. I have never heard them complain about their ‘misery’ because they are not miserable. They do harbor fears of hydraulically fracturing (fracking) the land for oil because it is somehow sacred. When I show them a pile of rotting leaves and organic material, I ask them “if this were to go on for thousands of years and be compressed by tons of material on top of it, would you call the methane that it gives off ‘sacred’?”. I then tell them the natural gas from the ‘Sacred Earth’ is for us to burn clean, to heat ourselves, to generate clean electricity which they use, to cook with and so on. Its abundance is no different than the fields of crops that are grown for our consumption and the consumption of our farm animals.
They nod in agreement. They get it.
Native American tribes and sects numbered in the hundreds when early European settlers appeared on the scene. These tribes were constantly warring against each other. Some tribes were very friendly and helpful to the settlers others were vicious, violent, murderous.
The average lifetime of an American Indian during the time of the early settlers was between three and four decades. Since that time their lifespan has more than doubled.
The tribes in the time of the early settlers were disease ridden, with rampant tooth decay. The exaggerated accounts of diseases brought by early settlers were on top of sickness and disease that existed well before settlers arrived.
The hygiene of Native Americans was so poor that they were often banned from establishments like restaurants and hotels inside towns and villages, no different than any scruffy, smelly white traveler. The rule was you had to get yourself clean before entering an eating hall or hotel lobby. They were permitted to transit through or walk the lanes through towns and they were expected to act peacefully just like all others. If they got drunk and acted up they would either be locked up or led to the edge of town and told to stay away, just like anyone else. I have black and white photos from the late 1800s showing Indians smiling and carrying on with white men in western hats. There were mutual respect and acceptance of the differences in culture and lifestyles. And these Indians were shirtless with trinkets around their necks and in the hair. Often they would wear sandals and ‘string’ pants meaning leather to cover their privates but with a thin strap of their bottock crevice, like a string bikini. This was normal for them.
I think we’re all tired of these “woe is us the white man ever appeared” line of crap.
