Excellent podcast. I learned so much and as heartbreaking as portions of it were, I ended it with hope for indigenous people.

no on cared about the ABORIGINALS/NATIVES WHEN WE WERE FORCEFULLY RELOCATED TO STRANGE LAND. THE PALE FACES ARE A NARCISSIST GROUP OF PEOPLE. WHINE WHINE WHINE. ME ME ME . AND EVERYTHING THEY HAVE WAS TAKEN FROM OTHERS . THIS IS ACROSS THE GLOBE. REASON I BELIEVE THEY ARE THE "ADVERSARY" ON EARTH.

I GUESS THE $5 "INDIANS" WEREN'T INCLUDED. ITS A SHAME FOR A NATION OF PEOPLE TO BE KNOWN FOR SOOO MUCH BITTERNESS, CENTURY AFTER CENTURY AFTER CENTURY. I FEEL THEY'RE THE "ADVERSARY" SPOKEN ABOUT. ALL DUE TO THEIR OWN VIEW OF THEMSELVES, BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN SHORTCOMINGS & THEIR INNER INCOMPETENCES .A BUNCH OF PALE FACE BULLIES.
