You know the colonists stole the idea of democracy from east coast tribes?
Please oh please explain how the east coast tribes invented democracy?
Easily one of the best posts ever here.
Oh goodie? Please oh please? Are you that much of a racist? You could have googled it yourself.

For one thing, would there have been a civil war?
The economic mismatch between the Slave owning states in the south and the manufacturing states in the North was one of the main drivers, wasn't it?
So, I doubt Lincoln would have been such a big noise.
Many of the indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast, such as the Haida and Tlingit, were traditionally known as fierce warriors and slave-traders, raiding as far as California. Slavery was hereditary, the slaves being prisoners of war. Their targets often included members of the Coast Salish groups. Among some tribes about a quarter of the population were slaves. One slave narrative was composed by an Englishman, John R. Jewitt, who had been taken alive when his ship was captured in 1802; his memoir provides a detailed look at life as a slave, and asserts that a large number were held.
Other slave-owning societies and tribes of the New World included the Tehuelche of Patagonia, the Kalinago of Dominica, the Tupinambá of Brazil, and the Pawnee of the Great Plains
