    i ask...what do you think the United States duty is to the native americans? and ...what can we do?

       and... how can we truly right a genocide committed against our own indigenous population?- we as decendents-  who are much more enlightened, must reconcile this countries past atrocities.
    before we go to africa or bosnia and the middle east lets examine our self importance /self righteous behavior and false compassion.
       our native american brethren suffer from more than poverty and alcoholism, they were robbed of an their culture! and of a history -of a religion, of their lands!
       we run to the need of foreigners in jeopardy of genocide- calling it barbaric/beastly/...wrong!

    As you stated, the first step is to prevent it from happening again. The biggest failure of humans is to not learn from their history, and past mistakes. It is unfortuante that we constantly see humanity repeat its flaws. This must be fixed, and yes, before we do the same thing,of which we have no right, to many other people, we must examine our actions and highly reconsider. Not only our actions must be looked at, but indeed, our motives. As a country, and as individuals.

    I agree with you and HATEisthename76, but I must also put this out there: ask yourself if you like the way the U.S. is at this moment in time, and if you want to help protect it.(well it's kind of a bad example during this recession) But yes, history must be examined and understood thoroughly, so as not to make the same mistakes again. What the U.S. did to the Native Americans is comparable to what Hitler did to the Jews in WWII. The same thing is happening over in the Middle East.
    Besides learning from horrific histories, I think that it's also important to not hold the actions of a few accountable for the populous, especially, years after the fact.
    I envision a world were there is no genocide, or hate of any kind; within the next trillion years I hope that's possible.

    I think that native americans, have their justice, their casinos are making billions. Native Americans that are true decendants of tribes get yearly pay out checks, pretty hefty checks!

    It's a tricky question. We are living on conquered territory. Of course, you can say the same thing about every piece of territory on earth. The problem is that many Americans like to think that they are unique and would never be guilty of conquest.

    If the past had gone differently, the overwhelming majority of Americans would not be living their current lifestyle. So if the goal is justice, then we would have to hand back all of the territory to the first inhabitants. Of course, that isn't practical So the best we can do is invest into reservations in the hope of creating economic opportunity. Ideally, this would be more than just casinos.
