Yes. I am unaware of any people who are better off than they were before the white man 'discovered' them. Did they have disease? yes, but not to the extent that the white man brought. Did they have famine? Occasionally. Did they have warfare, slavery, rape, senseless killings? Yes, they did, but it was within the cultural norms that they had formed for themselves, and they knew the rules.

It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
