    the atrocities whites committed against the natives and fears retaliation?  That might be behind his words.  Maybe he is thinking that if natives had done this to whites, the whites would be out for revenge.  He's projecting his own feelings - HE would seek revenge, perhaps, so how can he trust natives not to act in the same manner?

      But it'd also be silly to think there's not resentment on the part of some natives toward historical treatment.

        which is may not be good to do but it occurred to me so I spoke it.  I teach at a native american college and grew up in a native community.  I kind of know what's on many of their minds because we have incredible discussions.  I won't speak for them, though.  They are perfectly capable of speaking for themselves.
