Have the extremest know-it-alls

considered how the original Indigenous inhabitants of these Unceeded Territories feel when they hear the hate-filled comments of the children of immigrants calling down their misguided wrath on recent immigrants? How about this for an idea? People of good will put their hands and hearts together to help avert the perils of today's World from the massive destruction of a pending WW3 and environment collapse ....

Yes ! And all of us must first be the love inside ourselves that the wayward peoples of this perilous World so very much need.

Is ignored depending on the benfit.
It is very well known and documented historical fact how the tribes- all over the Americas from- Alaska to Tierra del Fuego- waged bloody wars upon each other for millenia. Wiped each other out, tortured each other,kidnapped children and women, decimated each other's crops etc. All those pyramids in Central America- built to sacrifice thousands of prisoners every year. ETC.

A friend is from a smaller tribe, and avoids those from another tribe over things that happened 200 years ago...even to this day

An old friend said something along those lines back in the 2000s but in more concise phrasing. He was of 2 different First Nations… one was the Tsleil-Waututh nation I think. I remember him filling up his tank in North Van. (tax free)

Yes, people are people and its all relative but, many Indigenous peoples knowingly deferred from industrialization and the resulting consequences of mass destruction. The same way they knew what fermentation is, but deferred from producing and drinking alcohell. The ancient pyramids down south you speak of displaying evidence of mass human sacrifices. The full story is yet to be told, as there is plenty of scientific speculation indicating they are from a much more ancient historical epoch, even hundreds of thousands of years previous, than the more narrow rear view mirror, you speak of. Oh well, those speculations are of great interest, but the most important thing is that people now and here need to learn to be good to themselves and others to avert another mass extinction event. Be well .... OCM Coast Salish affirmations

Documented by whom, and with what interest?

Do you still believe the fables our schools call textbooks?

The problem

I think the reason why so many people are upset about so much immigration has nothing to do with the people themselves. It’s got more to do with the problems that already exist right here, and the fact that adding another million or so people to the mess is just going to make things that much worse. If a country can’t take care of the citizens who already live there, they’ve got no business welcoming the rest of the world.

Well for one, they had stories themselves on how they conquered other tribes, the Mayans/Aztec etc made paintings depicting it, and early historians documented it. The South Pacific Islanders had raiding parties to other islands- is littered all through history.

It's history, if you don't like it that's your problem
