    They almost killed all the Native Americans, put the rest on reservations, took their land, or rather took the land the Native Americans were proudly caretaking, and now they have the gall to want more.  WTF!

      whatever the power takes only gives it a hunger for more.  open up your hymnal to the peter rowan section:

        I gotta' say, not really correct. The Navajo are not a plains tribe and did not hunt buffalo. The rhythm is off too. Most of us think of the "Indian" rhythm as ONE-two-three-four, ONE-two-three-four, but it's not really like that. The  Indian rhythm mimics the heartbeat, so it's more like BEAT-BEAT-rest-rest, BEAT-BEAT-rest-rest. Love the band though, you know I do.

        Not to detract from the point you've made, joe - but it's been over 35 years since I last saw Peter Rowan.  He and his brothers, Chris and Lorin, used to play at the Childe Harold near DuPont Circle as the Rowan Brothers back then. Panama Red, of course, was always the pièce de résistance.  Thanks for posting this.  Peter's voice sounds better than ever!

        Starting at about 3:00 are Chris and Lorin performing the type of stuff they did back then with Peter.

          i remember seeing the brothers back in the early 70's when they were seatrain.  i had seen peter rowan before playing bluegrass and didn't really realize at the time that it was the same people.  i saw peter rowan a few years back when he played "delfest," which is a fabulous bluegrass festival out in western maryland put on by del mccoury and his family.  rowan was even better than i'd remembered him.  if you poke around on youtube, parts of his show there were up a while ago when i was surfing.

      to First Nations. Taking their lands, putting them in reservations, shooting them.
