Do they not make money of all the tourists pouring in then?
Come on, think a little will you before jumping all over the "poor repressed natives" bandwagon. No, they haven't made millions out of it, like
some unscrupulous book dealers, authors etc. But they haven't been actively saying this is incorrect in any way until this year. They have been quite
happy to take the tourist money.
So yes, they can say it is wrong and innacurate. But no, they cannot realistically claim offence when they have generally waited until 2012 before
embarking on any large scale debunking attempts. It is complete and utter hypocrisy for them to claim otherwise.
no they don't make money off of tourists, that would be the job of the governments who have declared them national monuments. ask any Lakota how
much money they make from the bad lands or mount rushmore....
i think you're confused on how exactly aboriginal people are treated in this day and age. btw they don't own casinos down there so please spare me
on that line.
the people who truly have as close of a tie to the traditional teachings as can be expected, aren't making any money nor any claim to fame from these
traditional teachings. you must realize there are still leaders, spiritual leaders, who are not driven by money, greed or corruption.
that's why i stated my concern for this claim that "they" are angry when the real "they" could care less about money or any white mans fantasy
you have probably never spent any time with true spiritual leaders of the native peoples and i'm sad for that, because then you would see just how
human beings should conduct themselves and you would also see great potential for mankind in general.
