A very fine and interesting piece you have written! Do you not agree that the Native Americans are a far more decent and welcoming culture than the English? I do not understand why you name them "savages" in the title because you yourself prove them not to be. What wonderful field work and research. I wholeheartedly agree that our own society must learn to neutrally examine other peoples and cultures. The discussion must continue and we must convince our own culture to no longer view them as "savages" for they are similar and a more hospitable culture than our own.
