    Native American Pride

    I'm not Native American but I love anything that has to do with this.  Their spirit, their pride, their music, their art, love of nature, land, animals, peace and serenity,  words of wisdom.  Even though I'm not born Native American I feel that my soul is

    Much Respect

    Considering how much Native Americans have contributed to society and how much they've suffered at the hands of those very people, how can one not respect them. I could go on for hours, ranting and raving about how flat-out wrong Europe and America were/are in their treatment of...

    I believe the Natives had it all under control.

    They lived well, got along with animals and barely had interruptions. I think the world was better off with tribes of wilderness, there was barely any wars as well. Here, someone is murdered everyday, we kill for fun.
