    Actually there are no Native Americans.

    There are Siberian Aborigines who came across the Bearing straits about 35,000 years ago, but no humanoids evolved in the western hemisphere.

    And as Homo-sapiens they fought over land like their European and Asian cousins.

    Now, it is sad how people treat each other. We agree on that.

    Not just militia, such as Chivington's Colorado volunteers who massacred the Arapahoe and the Cheyenne at Sand Creek,. The army was deeply invested in the destruction of our ancestors, and the liquidation of our ownership of the land. The treachery of the treaty agents, and the perfidy of the American congress by refusing to ratify most treaties signed by their own agents, and our ancestors dispossessed us  by requiring we abide the terms of treaties they didn't have to honor. One answer claims that Americans today have nothing to do with all that era. However. they are living on our best lands, while we live on small scraps of land. My rez is 55 acres, in the country we were cheated out of. The Americans enjoy the results of the resources and lands their people took.

    But if they had horribly murdered your loved ones, would you feel so sorry for them?
