    Managed to live with the land and not pollute or destroy it. So I will say they were doing well.

    Very smart. They understood nature and its spirituality, felt the mysticism and power of the Great Spirit in all things.

    They didn’t need to go to a church to be in the presence of God. Every moment they spent in nature was to them being in the presence of God. 

    They knew how to live in harmony with the natural world and survived well without all the earth-destroying technology we now all require to survive. 

    Their big mistake was having that awareness gradually destroyed by European culture and adopting its values. 

    Now they are just as fvcked up as we are...they’re either thugs who  run casinos, etc. or the rest,  with a few exceptions here and there, die in poverty and desperation on reservations .

    Smart in survival in the areas they lived and

    Loyally protected each other. Sadly 35% of

    Americans ( democrats ) want our people

    Dead and our economy destroyed. Those

    Indians would have kicked them out or killed

    Them. Democrats are lucky conservatives

    Are not part Indian with that mind set.
