SkyBear wrote:Imp... I would not go as far as saying it is offensive, no more so than your comment about the Apache's. There were many more of them, far more than you have read about.
I suggest you read about the Apache some more...
Georgia was in the snow at one time, remember, we have been in global warming for 20'000 + years.
not when the Cherokee settled there
Of course you will not find many aunthentic photes of the Natives in their time, atleast not any happy photo's. So, pictures have been created to paint a beautiful picture of the Native culture, good, because before the photographers came around, it was quite beautiful.
lies have been told by white conquerors to assuage their guilt and invented by environmentalist totalitarians to sell their politics.
No, this is not an authentic video, however, it was obviously made by someone with good intention.

assumption is the mother of all fuck ups
The Apache you speak of were Warriors, kill or be killed mentality... hence the word War. Welcome to your world.
what does the word "Apache" mean? pacifist environmentalist?!?
There was more to the Apache then the Warriors, there were Women, Children, and Elders. Be careful not to bunch them all together.
You said there was no snow in Georgia when the Cherokee settled. That is easily disputed, but either way, the Natives settled in North America during the Ice Age, they tracked through snow for Thousands of years before they reached their destination, so, stories with snow will be part of all our ancestors past.
tell us of the origins and meanings of tribal languages...
Lies are nothing new to any of us right, Welcome.
If we spend all of our time angry about the lies, we will not learn the truth.

I grew up in Arizona, I went to school with kids from different Indian nations,, guess what??? They were no different then the rest of us. Dressed like us , talked like us, liked and disliked the same things, had pain in the butt parents, watched the same TV shows etc , etc, etc,. Some spent part of thier lives on the Reservations, some did not.
other than skin color they were your average everyday kids and they grew up to be average everyday people. some were idiots some were not, some were assholes some were not. Some went on to higher education some did not. No different than anyone else in this country.
Genocide?????? Really? Humans have been killing each other for the stupidest reasons since the beginning and now we are supposed to be the ones to suddenly feel guilty for something we did not do like wipe a whole group of people out? Thats like reperations for blacks because someone in their bloodline happened to be a slave. Got news for ya,, we all are descendents of slaves. Every single one of us has had ancestors that were enslaved at some point. Humans have been enslaving enemies and weaker humans since the beginning too. Worry about the slavery and genocides that are occuring now not what happened then.

Are you angry because you feel bad that the Planet has gone to crap and you want to apoligise to the Native.
I know the question seems sarcastic, but I am serious, because I still do not understand why anyone would have been offended by this slide show.
Or, was this a thread to increase post total?
The enemy is taken as slaves in manny epochs. Never never nobody else just went and took people from other parts of the world for the purpose of useing them as slaves.
