    IIRC, hippies used the peace and love message a lot back in the 60's...
    I don;t see how that relates to my response to the article.

    Just because something is "tradition" doesn't give it exclusive right to public property.

    Does not change the fact that most citizens of the US were Christian.

Even in Hawaii, there are a lot of young native Hawaiians who have rejected Christianity that their parents taught them and who have gone back to worshiping the old Hawaiian gods. I had a boss who was in this situation while I was there.
    It has nothing to do with "natives" that were not part of the continental US citizenry. You are now way of course and it has nothing to do historically or factually with my point or post.

    I doubt 200 hundred years ago when there were many Indian nations they were.

    And I know my Sioux friend celebrates the Holidays but still deeply believes in her Indian ways.

    Were they US citizens? Oh they weren't? So they have absolutely nothing to do with anything I was talking about now do they.
