I Want An America That Does Not Dishonour The American Indian

RESPECT THE INDIAN WHOSE SOIL THE USA LAID CLAIM TOO BY CORRUPTED GAIN!!! BY OPPRESSION!!! 783 People

    Our Culture Was Heavily Influenced By The Natives.

    I think it's sad how US history is taught. When Native Americans are brought up, it seems like they are either our enemies, or a group that has been wiped out completely and that's sad. Scarcely do we hear about their impact on our culture. Firstly, the founding fathers openly...

    Knowing What Happened To The Indians

    Makes me wish America was never colonized. The Native Americans had such a wealth of culture and spirituality and they never choose to fight the colonists until they wanted to take the land for themselves and craft the evils of technology, metal and railroads. The lands of the...
