There was an interesting program, I think it was Discovery Network, which proposed that the current Native Americans were not the first homo-sapiens to arrive in this hemisphere. Some archeologists have uncovered evidence that there were groups which preceded them (I think from Polynesia), and which were gradually slaughtered by the newer (i.e., our current) "Native Americans." Remnants of this original group fled farther and farther south, and the scientists found their genetic descendants down in Tierra del Fuego.
If true, this puts a damper on the Politically Correct depiction of the kind, peace-loving, gentle Native American tribes being wiped out by the EVIL Europeans.
They are no more peace loving than any other group of homo sapiens. They WERE nearly wiped out by Europeans. That is fact. There is no need to counter the left's attempt at changing history by changing history to make it more comfortable to the right. The descendants of the perpetrators of the crimes are NOT responsible for the sins of their fathers, but changing history is ALWAYS wrong. Two wrongs do not make a right.
There is evidence that whole tribes of native Americans in the Southwest were raided and slaughtered by tribes coming UP out of central America, too. History is HUGE and complicted, weaving a tapestry of fabulous intricacy. The more history we learn, the more clear the various patterns of the tapestry become.
Wow...I need more coffee.
