The Native Americans who encountered the Europeans were eager to trade to get fire sticks and stone axes. They coveted European produced goods
In addition, most of the Native tribes were eager to make treaties with European rivals against their historic enemies.
The Natives in the U.S. were at least allowed to trade with Europeans, and were not immediately captured and turned into slaves as the Spaniards
carried out their colonization.
While the pilgrims who were dropped off at Plymouth Rock were completely ill-prepared, and left with extremely little to make it through the harsh
winter. The other colonists were much better prepared, and fully capable of survival on their own.
Being a native american, and having a "reservation" that i grew up on, yes we have a casino but we are certainly not rich. Mainly because
politicians and higher ups will not let us put a casino where it will actually make any money, My casino probably only has about 800 slot machines and
a hotel. But it can only be on our reservation (which is located in a small rural town in northern wisconsin) and we really dont have too much
visitors, mostly in the summer time. I have gone to a native american boarding school for high school and i know very many natives of different tribes
and not very many are rich, honestly i know of only 3-4 tribes that are "RICH INDIANS". Those tribes are located right next to cities or have come
to an agreement with the state and government officials to have their casinos close to more populated areas. Long story short WE AS NATIVE AMERICANS
ARE STILL GETTING SCREWED BY THE WHITE MAN.
Yeah, immigrants of the past BECAME americans, ... what do you think these immigrants are doing ??
How do you know their not interested in becoming american ?
and how do you know what their here to do ?? Ignorance must be bliss, I know a hell of alot of immigrants, illegal and otherwise, and their primary
goal IS to become legal citizens !
You act like their here to rape women and pillage the countryside while you try to hold them off of your trailer with a torch.
We know because they say they don't and they send remittances home to Mexico. They are just here to work and feed their families. Some may want to
become citizens, but they should come legally and stand in line with the rest. Why do we have to give Mexico special priveleges? We paid for some of
the disputed land they believe is still theirs, and some of it was never theirs as I understand it. And yes, many of them do rape and engage in crime.
That is a fact.
By your definition OP, most native americans are descendants of "anchor babies" too. The current lineage of native americans were not the first to
inhabit this continent. They were not the first to cross the Land Bridge. Hell Europeans were here very early on as well, the Solutreans were the
fore-bearers of the Clovis people.
