    The whites scalped our people for the long silky hair, then to start war between the tribes they would make it look as though another tribe had done it. I think they even went so far as to scalp their own dead and claim indians had done it. My people took ears, J/K.
    oh right...lol ok then..they lied to me..

    my history teacher also said that some of the tribes would punish people by tied them down cut off their eye lids and face them to teh sun?? so they eventually go blind coz they cant close their eyes??

    I agree, I studied Native American history in Year 10 (2 years ago) and it made Native Americans seem like barbarians/animals or something, and there was little to oppose this.

    BTW Infin: Sorry for being ignorant on this, but what exactly is the difference between a Native American and an American? :confused:
    Native american is one of the many terms used to repesent the original people of this country, the indians if you will. American just represent anyone who is a citizen of this country.

    haha well American text books do like to romanticize the native americans as depraved savages and the British as 18th century Nazis, which is rather amusing

    lol hahaha yeh i guess he is a *******, what about Tecumseh? lol
    Tecumseh was a great leader, and it's a shame his people would not listen to him in the end.

    Thats ok they lied to me too, and I always got punnished for standing up and spouting off about the untruths that were being spoken, got my ass paddeled once over scalping. Hmm, that other stuff, yeah some of it has truth, but that stuff only happened after women and children were being raped and murdered. Can't say I blame them, ya know. Different era, different culture, different rules and punishments.

    Bombshell, we want ya here, yes lets talk more about yiou, this stuff is depressing me. Wheres me peace pipe, and peyote at, I need to center myself to mother earth. J/K

    lol, you know i have many native american chants on my computer, i like them. But the Indians did encourage the white man, concerning trading etc... they loved trading and couldn't stop - especially for guns.
