it is pure ignorance to either calim that the term native american applies to anyone born here, or to calim that native land claims do not result from their being here first or to argue that s skeletonfrom a man who died thousands of year ago has any relevance to thaose natuive land claims.
that's the great disapointment about midcat crawlers.
folk used to be progressive and fight racism, now people on midcat use every wrinkle thay can thinbk of to try and discredit native claims.
native claims are simply inherited land rights. when you oppose them you are in reality saying that you can inherit your fathers land but natives should not be able to because they have a different legal system--thats the very definition of rtacism.
OF COURSE THEY HAVE A DIFFERENT LEGAL SYSTEM. the canadian and american legal system wasn't here when the natives living here and creating their unique society;
however every bug comes out from uder a rock to nit pick.
natives of the americas have been subjested to the worst genocide in human history, the genocidal residential schools intentionally infected native children with lethal diseases, (admitted by the byce report by the canadian supervisor of medicine for residential schools), they were subjest to illegal and un authorized medical experiements(look up the acanadian anglican church journal), there are many many other abuses.
most of you should be ashamed og yourselves, but you are too uneducated and ignorant to feel proper shame.
