Makah Native Americans, another broken treaty

The Native American tribe the Makah nation of the Pacific Northwest, the state of Washington, in the United States of America, are whale hunters. They have been hunting whales for about 3,000 years.

In the USA prior to the 1960's many Americans grew up watching cowboy and Indian movies, where the Indians always lost. Then in the mid to late 1960's the liberals told America this was wrong as well as the nation's long history of breaking treaties with Native Americans. Books like "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee," examined in detail the mistreatment of Native Americans by the government of the United States of America. Also movies like "Little Big Man," "Dances with Wolves," and "Last of the Mohicans" illustrated this poor treatment of Native Americans.

In 1855 the Makah nation signed a treaty with the USA government signing around 90% of their land in exchange for continued permission to hunt whales. Later European and commercial whalers in the region depleted the whales in the region and ended the whale hunts by the Makah people. Recently the whale population has replenished itself, and the Makah want to whale hunt again. Well in the 1970's the liberals through their co-conspirators in the environmental movement had the worthless Congress ban whaling in the region. The Makah nation is another example of broken treaties by the United States government and further proof that liberalism is a mental disorder.
