Like America at the turn of the century, we decided we would try to "humanize" the American Indian. Another disaster. Let these people live in peace, and not force your culture on a much much older, peaceful one.

Typical Government strategy - like a bull in a china shop. No finesse and no idea how to cope with the sensibilities of indigenous people. They are much happier and enlightened than we in the western world....we concur with Aletta - leave them alone.

Excellent website. Reading the article reminded me of the atrocities the US did to it's Native populations.

Indigenous people are a country's heritage. They should be respected like any member of the so-called 'mainstream society'.
