This has been a fantastic set of articles.
While I have nothing against the Noble Savages ─ my Pioneer ancestors in the Mountain States got along with them well enough for the most part ─ I do highly resent how they are fetishized to some extent as sages of the Great Spirit and indomitable Nature that we ignorant White men in coon-skin caps can learn so much from.
I have seen European continental tourists stop by the side of the road to see a Native sideshow with exotic costumes and homemade flutes and almost lose their minds in ecstasy at the spectacle. They seem to be overly willing to put General Custer into the same calumny camp as Otto Ohlendorf or Paul Blobel.
When I visited the Little Big Horn memorial in Montana at the tail end of the Covid lockdown awhile back, I was pleasantly surprised that I did not see very much “Woke.”
