    I recall it was the white men hunting the buffalo to exterminate them and remove the food source for the  indigenous people. If you have proof of what you say spit it out. Some speculation is out there about mammoths and other animals but there is no proof of it. We lived here for ten thousand years in harmony with nature. Looks like a not to subtle racist dig. In case you are wondering I am Alutiq and I can attest to the genocide committed against our people.

      absolutely unheard of view and he/she is called a racist??

      I've got a very healthy dose of Chippewa in me, sat at the feet of Shatka Bear Step when I was little listening to lore, and I'm still able to listen to other's views without calling "racist".

      History is what it is....and yes, North America already belonged to someone when the Whites arrived, but it was not a utopia by any means.

      Find a human population anywhere and you will find flaws.

      Wonders are many, but none so wonderful as man.
