D. Van E

- Truth of a people, lied about historically.

A look at the Native American perspective from a native before the brutality of reformation schools and Christian organizations attempted to "kill the savage save the man" this destroying tradition language and most importantly spirituality. The same spirituality that allowed for Natives helping all beings compassionately as a way of life for most nations gets omitted from history while celebrating Natives "warrior spirit" that unfortunately has been and continues to be wrongfully characterized. Put into such a small scope of barbaric ceremony and torturous wartime practices that came long after Europeans had decimated the culture, and thus tainting the minds with fear and distrust that never existed in these once beneficent people.
