How else would you regard treacherous stone age aborigines who engaged in terroristic murder, torture and cannibalism and who were in fact physically dirty?
You've chosen your screen name well.

("I would like at least to know his name.")
No, it is time we unburdened ourselves of this utterly fictitious notion of the noble savage. While the white man was not free of evil, the politically correct version of frontier history now being sold is dangerous and misleading. As the descendant of a white settler murdered by the Indians in this French and Indian War, I am happy to state the reality of our Aborigines without embarrassment.
I do not deny that the red race produced admirable examples such as Pocahontas, Sacajawea, Chief Joseph and Washaiki, but the objective truth remains that these people were Aborigines who engaged in the barbarous practices I have described in my previous post to a degree that surpassed the excesses of the English settlers.
