Alrighty, then.
All the Native Americans ALWAYS lived in peace and harmony with each other and the land. What ARE you smokin'?
As one of my professors once said "All styles in ALL CULTURES at ALL TIMES are NEVER PEACEFUL ALL THE TIME"
Susan was being sarcastic. This is a very enlightening thread, I had no idea there was a conception of all Natives as harmonious peace-loving innocents and all European settlers as ragins, black-hearted murderers. Is there no perspective anymore??
