DePaul University officially adopts
Indigenous ‘land acknowledgment’

DePaul University officially has adopted a Native American land acknowledgment after almost a year’s worth of “researching, meeting with stakeholders, vetting with shared governance.” According to The DePaulia, the area around DePaul’s home, Chicago, Illinois, was once “occupied by the indigenous tribes […] who maintained deep connections with this land where they lived, worked and worshiped.” (Snip) Religious Studies Professor Lisa Poirier said the land acknowledgment is an “important first step” for (white) settlers to come to terms with the people and land they’ve occupied for over 200 years.


Seems they have forgotten that Jean Baptiste Point du Sable, the first non-indigenous settler in Chicago, was not a white man. So if they're going to point fingers, point at him.

Ok, acknowledgement. It doesn't sound too bad, we'll see who tries to make financial or political hay out of it. For me, the primary embarrassment and sadness about 'the Indian wars' was much less about the wars, and the problems, but almost totally that we signed treaties and then dammit, we broke the treaties! That's NOT right. And to whatever extent those treaties still provide a legal basis for claims, I'll stand on the side of "we need to stick to what we signed" if it comes to that. That said, I am not a soft headed person about the "wonderfulness" of Indian life. They were often barely getting by, they were a stagnant, stone age culture, with no written language, no mathematics beyond simple counting, no geometry, no significant metal working, had not developed the arch, had not developed the wheel. They were at least 5,000 years, and more like 10,000 years behind the middle east and Europe in development of mathematics, writing, building, metal working, ships, plowing the land, harnessing water power and dozens of other things. But, in my view, we should hang our heads in shame over signing treaties and then in a few years breaking them to take that land. That was very wrong, and against my morals, and the morals end ethics that we at least said that we believed in.

Why don't we condemn the Romans, the Greeks, the Persians, Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, Napoleon, Spain, and England for seizing the lands of others through really bloody warfare including pillaging, raping and plundering of populations. All of the aforementioned fought for the booty. The loot was divided among the soldiers with the leaders getting the biggest cut while the Romans allotted a plot of ground to each soldier to farm. We followed in the same tradition of conquering and built a country out of nothing. The Indians didn't even have the wheel and had to follow the buffalo herds for meat! If the Europeans hadn't expanded to the Americas, those natives would still be growing corn and hunting deer and rabbits for food. It is unfortunate that we had no sympathy for the conquered, but that was then. It would be helpful now if we truly spent more money on helping the Indians instead of giving them lip service through the Interior Department. That's the real problem. They have been abused, neglected and crapped on since the 1800's.

# 1 , # 2 , The left will always hold the Indians as saintly. Always. Once North America was found by the Europeans there was no way it was not going to be colonized. The Europeans were technologically advanced and the Indians didn't stand a chance.

As far as, what we did to help them, we built schools specifically for them, and relatively few took advantage. I know a couple of Indians who are fully integrated, modern folks. You MIGHT guess from the long ponytail of one, but that's not very unusual. That individual is a computer drafting expert at a large engineering firm. Well educated, and well integrated into the modern world. But, he still keeps some Indian roots, too. Unfortunately, our current Congresscritter is a lesbian, extreme leftist who is an Indian from the local Indian school. In Lawrence, KS, no more than 25 miles from where I sit, there is what is now called Haskell Indian Nations University, first founded in 1880s as a boarding school where Indians from all across the country could come to get an education, it has always been fully federally funded. I think it still is. Has it always been a shining example of perfection? I don't know, but I doubt it, just because I know that the government tends to screw up everything it does.. At least there has been, since the end of the Indian Wars, several schools where they could get an education and make a move to integrate into normal society at government expense. IIRC, there were three of these schools originally created, I think in Oklahoma and Nebraska, too. I only know about Haskell because it is close by, never spent much time investigating, don't know if the other schools still even exist. My point is just that they have had opportunities to integrate, if they wanted. Huge numbers chose to not do it. I have never fully understood this, but the problems with alcohol for Indians that is a common TV show stereotype, seem to be pretty real. Friends who attended University of Kansas, also in that same town, have mentioned that "drunken Indians" were a real thing at times when they were going to college.

Hey professor, the Indians came across the Bering straits when they were frozen. They really didn't do much with the country since they did not know how. BTW, they were not all that concerned about the environment. When they 'hunted' buffalo they drove a whole herd over a cliff, took what they needed for food and tents, left the remainder for the buzzards. Wouldn't our lefty ecology freaks be upset about that!!!???

Then DePaul needs to do the right thing, tear down all of their buildings, and give that land back to the Indians!!! Right is right after all!!! And all your terrible white guilt can be alleviated!!! And, on the plus side, one less for-left Communist indoctrination center for our young people works for me!!! Sounds like a win/win!!!

Yeah. I'm picking up their signal.... it says they are very virtuous. Why do we have to acknowledge something that everybody already knows? The land was occupied by American Indians, but they weren't indigenous, any more than anyone else. They migrated from somewhere in Northern Russia. I don't need to come to terms with them, or the land. I had nothing to do with it. Their "sacred homelands" were probably not their homelands. It was most likely taken from some other tribe in bloody tribal warfare.
