It was just a race for territory. The more territory, the more food, and the more power (money) for the ruler.

That race is over now (but Russia doesn't seem to have gotten the memo).

Even the tribes of north America had territorial disputes! Right @Piney?

The only reason the Lakota were on the prairie was because we drove them off their rice lakes. :yes:

GOOD LORD, why aren’t you people happy? We stole your land and gave you smallpox and a crippling addiction to alcohol in return.

Try something innocent like Bingo. All those granny ladies streaming there on the weekend are like the gateway drug for everything else.

You created this thread for "sheer hypocrisy" such as you not supporting the relocation of "occupiers" in your country?

You haven't really thought out the practicalities of your solution.

Yeah but the Russians wiped out over 3/4s of them and there is whole tribes there whose language and culture is extinct. My grandfather was one of the reps for the various Indigenous Congresses. We were there. They suffered the same fate as my people but the Cossacks the Empire sent were far more brutal than the Americans and the Red Army was just as bad, not that I have to tell you that.....:hmm:

There has been a revival of Shamanism in Central Asia and the Yeniseian Peoples are working with their brother's the Dine'(Apache-Navajo-Athapaskans). My people are also working with other tribes whose North Woods culture was the same at one time. I personally helped with the revival of Shamanism among the Turkic groups.

Well if camels are the ships of the desert, maybe horses are the canoes of the plains.

I miss that. Riding full tilt across the grasses. 

@Iilaa'mpuul'xem  has pictures of me somewhere doing that. My son took them while trying to keep up.   Full tilt. Running with the wind.....

Australia was discovered by captain James Cook in 1770 and it then became a British colony since it was hard to find food it quickly became a race for territory :-(

It was discovered quite some time before Cook.

Dutchman Willem Janszoon was the first, European, to map the part of the northern coast in 1606. He landed and met with aboriginal people.

Others such as Dirk Hartog and Abel Tasman famously charted part of the Australian coast.

45318-max

Cook charted the East Coast.

Cook reported seeing aboriginal people too; and, as this thread implies they probably discovered it before any European.

PS. Cook's cottage is in Melbourne.

WELL there was that 50+ thousand year old culture that thrived here prior to Cook's arrival.
OHH and the French had an outpost just down the coast from Botany Bay (in fact, the Eora who Cook met were displaced from their home territory by those very French).

An official apology that was at best an exercise in what we these days call “virtue signalling”.
