And I also mean no harm to anyone that was sold all of the "New Age" ideas of of a land that did not exist
Some of this sounds groovy,but it only exists in bookstores.At least in all of the places that I lived,
maybe out in the Southwest,but the biggest collection was what they called the Mississippi Nation
I would not know what they did in the UK,and if I got misinformed by books I would take that as the way it was.
In the US,the biggest collection of tribes were called
When the Louisiana purchase happened,almost half of the US was considered part of it.
It split many tribes in half.All of the above that was green was Louisiana.The Louisiana territory included land from fifteen present U.S. states and two Canadian provinces. The territory contained land that forms Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, Oklahoma,Kansas, and Nebraska; the portion of Minnesota west of the Mississippi River; a large portion of North Dakota; a large portion of South Dakota; the northeastern section of New Mexico; the northern portion of Texas; the area of Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado east of the Continental Divide; Louisiana west of the Mississippi River (plus New Orleans); and small portions of land within the present Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.France controlled the Louisiana territory from 1699 until it was ceded to Spain in 1762. In the hope of re-establishing an empire in North America, France regained control of the Louisiana territory in 1800 under the rule of Napoleon Bonaparte. A slave revolt in Haiti and an impending war with Great Britain led French officials to sell the Louisiana territory to the United States, who originally sought to purchase only the city of New Orleans and its adjacent lands.
So basically all of the tribes that still owned there own land,before it was stolen..
Well,in the long run,most of that stuff that you see in the bookstores,the "New Age" stuff I think is
an ongoing insult to anyone that grew up poor and uneducated,on food stamps,and unemployed,
should get the money that those folks made by selling there souls so cheaply.
But like I say,if I was from somewhere else I would be buying all of that and believing it.
