    "They brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things, which they exchanged for the glass beads and hawks' bells. They willingly traded everything they owned. They were well-built, with good bodies and handsome features. They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane. They would make fine servants. With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want." -As written by Christopher Columbus of the Arawaks he and his sailors encountered when 'discovering' America.

    Hey!@ we don't celebrate Sitting Bull day so don't fill me with that load and Black history month is the shortest one on the calender so you'll live. They finally have a month for latinos but where is the indian month. I think it should start in the middle of one month and run until the early part of some other month. (Kind of like the Pow wows around here hehehe. Start late end early.)
