Just stop, I am so tired of ppl claiming to be decendants of the great cheifs! Let me guess your great great great grandmother was a cherokee princess. :rolleyes:
Um, I'm 1/16 Native American. Sitting Bull was the chief of the tribe, I never said I was his descendent, although it is possible. It's the Sioux tribe if you must know

Nice British invention! *cough*

I think you will find that Baird events happened before Farnsworth's.

When you say Indians, when referring to a land filled with many, many tribes, it would seem ignorant to suggest this is all Indians. You call me stereo-typing, yet you are accumulating all Native Americans as one when using the term "Indian".

Not all tribes were fighting, and yes, there were many blood-thirsty tribes, which even killed many of the first settlers. And we did win the fight against them, and there are still those peaceful tribes which obviously do not count in the war, so it would be ignorant of you to suggest they do.

You are part Native American, you say, so I can understand your ignorance, but I already told you I am part Native American. Seriously, use your common sense.
No you used the term Indians, I said the native ppls, and it's not my fault if you take everything from the history books as fact. Almost all the info is false. Yes there are many tribes, but all followed the same rules of the land. If you were at all familiar w/ the sacred teachings you would understand this. We did in fact live in peace on this land for many years as that is how it was supposed to be. However the problems arrised when the first settlers came ashore. This is when the fighting began, this is when we were no longer brothers and sisters living in harmony. Certain tribes were labled as horse theives, others as rapists you get the picture, this is what caused unrest and war among all the peoples. It was not always this way.

I misinterpreted your comment, sorry.
For some reason I beleive you. At the same time I feel you are sadly misinformed about our ppl. I say our ppl because there was a time when the tribes were one, which is how it should be.
Oh, god I sound like my uncle!

Well you could say that but i personally dont see much similarities between Nipkow's Spinning Disc and a TV. Also Nipkow is German

lol ya they say he invented the T.V. but the past few years they discovered it was actually Farnsworth who did. Which is why he is now the declared inventor of it, getting the idea from swaying corn fields. You decide

No I misinterpreted, I actually thought you were saying you were a direct decendant, which led me to doubt you. Ahh, nevermind.
