    Why? Non civilized tribes still exist today.The Apache were brutal as hell and Apache are still around. I just meant they shouldn't have been "civilized".

    If they fought to "their death", as you put it, we wouldn't have Dizzy Lizzie, again-or not.

    If she was all that intelligent and articulate she wouldn't have gotten herself caught up in a lie. Not to mention stealing the recipes. lol

    From George Will:

    The kerfuffle that has earned Warren such sobriquets as “Spouting Bull” and “Fauxcahontas” began with reports that Harvard Law School, in routine academic preening about diversity (in everything but thought), listed her as a minority faculty member, as did the University of Pennsylvania when she taught there. She said some in her family had “high cheekbones like all of the Indians do.” The New England Historic Genealogical Society said a document confirmed the family lore of Warren’s Cherokee ancestry, but later backtracked. She has said she did not know Harvard was listing her as a minority in the 1990s, but Harvard was echoing her: From 1986 through 1995, starting before she came to Harvard, a directory published by the Association of American Law Schools listed her as a minority and says its listings are based on professors claiming minority status.

    ...Now she is a comic figure associated with laughable racial preferences. She who wants Wall Street “held accountable” is accountable for two elite law schools advertising her minority status. She who accuses Wall Street of gaming the financial system at least collaborated with, and perhaps benefited from, the often absurd obsession with “diversity.”

    How absurd? Warren says that for almost a decade she listed herself in the AALS directory as a Native American because she hoped to “meet others like me.” This well-educated, highly paid, much-honored (she was a consumer protection adviser to President Obama) member of America’s upper 1 percent went looking for people “who are like I am” among Native Americans?

    The diversity of Elizabeth Warren - Conservative News, Views & Books

    Will is right: "This makes perfect sense to a liberal subscriber to the central superstition of the diversity industry, which is the premise of identity politics: Personhood is distilled not to the content of character but only to race, ethnicity, gender or sexual preference."

    Cherokee people
    Cherokee tribe
    So proud to live
    So proud to die
    Actually some stayed behind and others settled for a while in Alabama and Mississippi.

    Read about Shubuta Trading post in Clark county...and indian settlement in Escambia County.

    As for how the national parties play their politics, can't have it both ways.
    Why not? You do.
