No, they look like hardened warriors who don't give a f*ck about your 21st century delusions.
Unfortunately, Christianity has been destroying much of the Native American beliefs and culture.
From reading, there is organized efforts to revive the older beliefs, and blend the 2 together.
And NO, that is not Christian bashing, its just a fact.
This is just one article.
For America's indigenous people, late 19th century Christianity meant forced assimilation and cultural domination.

Hmmm. Well considering this stuff goes on in the wild I would say your totally wrong.
Have you studied physical anthro?
Are you aware of animal homosexuality?
In fact its been replicated in labs expirementing with population sizes in animal cages. Homosexuality pops up with overpopulation on top of other reasons.
Have any other examples.
Because in domestic scale culture its extremely common. I would say that's much more "natural" than the intellectual creation of civilization.
Have you read any ontological examples of the social contract?
