Most of those are true; however, the land part is not. Even when people came to the new world, the natives found it strange how they were being made to sign ownership for their land. They always felt that they belonged to the land and never thought that the land belonged to them :) Smart people...

That's a bit one-sided, don't you think? Here are some examples from the other side. It's not for the squeamish (text only).

This is not to say there weren't problems on both sides, but neither side was totally innocent. There were plenty of reasons the whites called the Indians savages. It wasn't because they lived a primitive lifestyle, either.

A quote:

"In one year--1862--about 300 settlers were enslaved by Indians in Minnesota alone. Thousands of Spanish and Mexicans were enslaved. Their crimes? They just wanted to build a little home and farm in the vast millions of square miles of wide open empty territory! (Modern Americans who have never traveled through places like North and South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Texas, New Mexico or Arizona really have no clue how vast and empty this space is--even with 300 million people living in America)!"

By the way, my wife has first nations' (Amerind) ancestry, of the Haudenosaunee, so I say this strictly from a neutral viewpoint.
