American Indian Arrested After Skinning Head Of Bald Eagle

Why do we continue to worship American Indians as though they were the epitome of humanity? They were stone age savages as this story illustrates. I have no doubt that some group will step forward in his defense in an effort to protect the "noble savage" and in doing so will put far too much emphasis on "noble" and far too little on "savage."

I'm all for preservation of tradition, but certain things need not be preserved. Savagery is one of those things.
