I watched a portion of 60 mintues last night and was very upset with what
appeared to me to be support by the interviewer of the archologist
white/euro/americans sense of out rage that he could not impose their cultural
ideas on and a native American nation, and was upset that Native
American beliefs were being sustainted over white, called it forcing their
culture on the US. I tink Aim needs to review that film and demand for equal
time on 60 mintues and make the point that those people are a nation and have
the right to determine what is ok and not in their nation. Casino was used as
a emotional response word to get white support, at least in my way of
thinking. Also that history that is oral has over and over been found to be
as accurate as written history, and that whites don't have the
right to demand their so called scientific methods to be the only truth system
about early life here. Indidans were accused of fearing to loose their casino
if white digs showed in white concept that they had not lived there for 500
years as climed. This is biased white social arrogant put down of indians.
Pilgrim plantation had to change much of their buildings here after a dig
because white history was wrong. Whites do not have a history of oral history
and there fore believe only written history is accurate. Native peoples
history must be respected by white/euro/americans.
