It is the contact with great masses of people who are seeking fir the moment only well-being and not salvation that weakens and devalues the indigenous population."

We can teach and learn from each other to produce a better America…"

Author: Wade Davis
6. "Cultural survival is not about preservation, sequestering indigenous peoples in enclaves like some sort of zoological specimens. Change itself does note destroy a culture.
