Government screwed me out of my status. Pit tends to be racist to aboriginals btw, I've made a few threads myself.

edit: oh yeah, I'm Mohawk. Forgot that.

I'll admit I am, but not to all. There's a few native groups around here, three I think, but only one of them I do not like. They have their own special government, who writes everyone in the group cheques every two weeks, they give them vehicles, pay their rent and bills, etc. They have absolutely no shame or respect for anyone/anything. They're the only people around town I ever see drunk, and statistically they have more crime and preventable unwellness (addiction, obesity, etc.) then any other group in the Atlantic area. And believe me, white people aren't the only ones that don't like them. (This is a statement regarding approximately 60-70% of the groups population, the rest of them are pretty alright).

The rest of the groups are at least honourable, work for what they want, and generally aren't any worse then people of European decent. Sure, they have some bad people, but so do we, and the percentage is about even.

That's pretty cool, I think in every country there are aboriginals

just like the ainu in japan
the aborigines in australia
the maori tribes in new zealand

I wish I knew some more, I know of the aborigines in the philipines as well.
It is all very interesting to learn about

Only countries which had an influx of european migrants on an existing native population I think.

In Scandinavia the Sami are left over natives from the ice age, and non-sami living in scandinavia are genetically europeans who migrated north I think.

That's really cool, maybe your mom could teach you some of it? I wish I could still speak my tribes language and knew more, residential schools are a terrible thing for what they did to that generation. It's really sad that a lot of us will never truly be able to fully experience our culture because of what happened there.

It seems that not very many people can still speak the languages so it's really cool that people are still being taught them.

If I had to be anything other than what currently I am, I'd want to be any kind of North American native

Maoris are cool too - well, I think so but I am judging them by the only Maoris I've ever met: the All Blacks rugby team

All I know is that a great grandmother of mine, supposedly a tribal princess of some sort hooked up with a french explorer and eventually went south to america, around the 1500's. It's not much but I take a good deal of pride in it. I think it was one of the original, smaller Sioux tribes that later all became known (derogatorily) as the Sioux.

Of course, I could have gone without the love of alcohol gene but meh, it's the price you pay for a little character in your blood.

An interesting claim.
If you were to say 'native Briton' denoting your ancestry as Celtic, those belonging to the Iron Age 'pre-Roman invasion' population, then yes, you could define yourself as 'native' or rather as having native ancestry, but the English are considered to be descended from the Germanic tribes that settled in the area, such as the Angles, (which is where the word 'English' comes from) Saxons, and Jutes, who founded what was to become England, as well as the Norse and Danish Vikings and Normans that invaded later on.

Of course, actualy being able to claim ancestry from the early pre Roman Britons via official records is practicaly impossible because our records don't go back that far, but it is thought that a good indication of Celtic ancestry is if you or members of your family have red hair.

I know that my great great great Uncle or something was in some kind of army, and went over to America to fight in wars against Native Americans. Sorry about that. Apparently he brought a bunch of awesome stuff home, like clothes and tools and things, but after he died some other anscestor of mine burned it all because it was made by pagans. Religious Irish people FTL.

Is that meant as a greeting or an expression of approval?
As I understand it, it is a greeting to the Sioux, but an expression of approval, to the Huron, although I suppose it could be both to both cultures.

Very interesting culture to study, although I've only scratched the surface myself.
Their belief system may actualy be one of the oldest in the world, elements of it possibly dating back to 16,000 years ago. The theory is that the Americas were first populated by people from Asia towards the end of the last glacial period, a time before settled agriculture.
Previous to the Neolithic Revolution, the archeological evidence seems to point to most hunter/gatherers as having similar religions, mainly belief in a 'Mother Goddess' figure and also points to different settled cultures being responsible for this early religion developing in different directions, resulting in the many varied and different religions we see today. So if the hypothesis that hunter/gatherers tend to keep to the same religious ways for thousands of years without much change holds any truth, then it stands to reason that the Native Americans that continued as hunter/gatherers while the Neolithic Revolution developed in the Middle East would still have a semblance of the early form of religion practiced by our own pre-historic ancestors.
