  • The problem is that the many influences and viewpoints aren't taught. History education in this country stinks and just one big just-so story. The reality of this country (and really the world in general) is that it is and always has been a multi-ethnic, multi-religious, multi-viewpoint pool of disagreement and self-interest. None of which is necessarily a bad thing, unless we ignore the fact, and continue to pass it off as some sort of happy, values-laden, place where people held hands and did what was "right"...and continue to not learn from it, because we don't teach it, and as a people, we don't value it.

  • At the time the constitution was drawn up , I think there was more interest in removing or killing off the original inhabitants . Of course , you can rewrite history if you wish to be politically correct, people do it all the time .

  • I've never heard anyone ever attribute COTUS to any native american tribe.

  • There were many influences, Iroquois had very little if any.
