Being a descendent of several Indian tribes from my past ancestry, My heart has been with the American natives. This one of the reasons I love what you have put together on the Goldscope web site.
These great people have been treated as illiterates. They loved nature and had the ability to live and survive with nature with out destroying Gods gifts. Go..... you won't go wrong working with them and helping them. My Great Aunt Lola went to the reservation and helped sew and clothe the children.
My granddaughter Jessica is one quarter Indian not counting the blood from our family. Her Father was a half. Every year Jessica and her Husband Zach, participate in the Green River Rendezvous Pageant here in Sublette County. You guessed it - she's an Indian.
We wish you the best year you have ever had.

The Pageant my granddaughter was in, was one of thirteen pageants from all over the world aired on the Discovery Channel. I have painted a few pictures of the American Natives and I have considered them to be the real Royalty of America.
William, I utterly agree. I have Cherokee in my family history. But it wasn't until 5 years ago, when I began WaybillToAdventure.com as the online site for my father's 35 year old publishing house, and in miles of research, that my blood began to pound over the fact that the history books we studied from as children - DO NOT tell the real story. And for the most part, our children still study the same LACKING information. Sadly, this is true for more of the ethnic races than just the American Natives. It is a goal of mine to begin to really tell the stories, and hopefully much of it will come from personal stories of those who lived at the knees and listened to the tales from the real storytellers - their parents or grandparents who lived the reality of some of these time periods.
