No offence, by any means, but I get upset when one group of people claim something that would help our knowledge about the past. The reason why I so boldly state "so-called" is because they are not the first ones to what is now known as N/S America...however, it is because of their actions that such important history is going to be lost forever.
It is just a few, and I by no means blame one entire group...as it is only a handful of Native Americans who are doing this.
