Yeah, i've noticed once you run out of arguments you remind people here of that. And I was just responding to a genealogy irrelevant post from you. But no my ancestors weren't in the wounded knee massacre as far as i know. I am to a very small part huron, the rest is a mixture of french canadian and belgian.
Look I really didn't want to pick a fight or something, i just get heated when americans "forget" what they did. That is part of history and of genealogy. I grew up in germany and we were constantly reminded how terrible hitler was (and i don't deny that) Americans just seem to conveniently forget their terrible parts of history. It isn't something you "should just get over with" and forget. People have to be reminded of what happened so history doesn't repeat itself again.
Peace,
Michael
