    I always enjoy reading Ms. Goff's stories about the early days as she has a knack
    with words. However, this story implies that the Indians were happy with the white-eyes taking their land and peacefully allowed that to happen. I rather suspect it had
    a lot to do with the invaders vs. Indians ratio and firepower differences. Let's face
    reality, the Germans/Spanish/French/English/Whoever *stole* the land the Indians had inhabited for centuries. Might doesn't make right now, nor did it then.
