Another lie I hear repeated is that the Native Americans were gentle or weren't savages. Um, yeah, not so much. There certainly were less savage tribes, but there were many violent tribes that did horrible things. Sometimes retaliation was unfairly put on all tribes (or the wrong tribes) for the crimes of some: but a lot of the violence against tribes was warranted by past behavior, even if not directed at the correct tribe.

Another lie I hear repeated is that the Native Americans were gentle or weren't savages. Um, yeah, not so much. There certainly were less savage tribes, but there were many violent tribes that did horrible things. Sometimes retaliation was unfairly put on all tribes (or the wrong tribes) for the crimes of some: but a lot of the violence against tribes was warranted by past behavior, even if not directed at the correct tribe.

Issue Lie Truth
Gentle savages A lie I hear repeated too often by the ignoranti, is that Native Americans were unfairly attacked by the brutal Europeans, and without us, they would have lived in peace on the land. The truth is that many (most?) Native America tribes could be horribly violent and cruel, and were called savages not just because of pre-bronze age lifestyle, but because of their pre-bronze age behaviors and societies.
