    Rest In Peace Chester Nez. Your efforts to support America are well understood and respected.

    Modern America needs to understand the Native people and their dedication to the continuity of good life on this continent. Their respect for the true elements of freedom are modeled in the independence they had in the past. We have a great deal to learn from them about that, and living a truly good life.

    Namaste

    I saw a movie about these guys. It must have been funny the witness the Japanese burning throught all oceanic dialects to understand what the heck was going on out there.

    Letter from the Commanding Officer of the 142nd Infantry to the Commanding General of the 36th Division, stating how messages would be transmitted during World War I in Choctaw as the enemy "could not decipher the messages." -> https://catalog.archives.gov/id/301642

    Now this I didn't know. Never heard a thing about it, though in hindsight one would think that Hitler's admiration of American Indians and WW I it would be odd he wouldn't send intelligence people over before the wars started, I guess.

    I don't believe that Hitler ever had any intentions of going to war against America just like he never intended going to war with France and England he always had his eyes on the east. It was France and England who declared war in Germany.

    Now Japan is a different story, the fuse for war in the Pacific with America was lit in 1906. Japan started drawing up their war plans to defeat America before WW l.

    The only reason Japan declared war on Germany in 1914 was they wanted the German colony in Tsingtao, China < http://www.firstworldwar.com/battles/tsingtao.htm > and then they had their eyes on the German Mandate Islands in the Central Pacific where most of the fighting took place during WW ll in the Pacific. Japan needed those atolls in the Central Pacific to fight the U.S. Navy in the future.

    After WW l Japan was awarded the German Mandate Islands (Micronesia Islands)

    The United States knew that Japan would be challenging America right after WW l and two Marine Corps field grade officers started drawing up America's war plans for fighting Japan in the Pacific. Those plans were adopted in 1924 and was known as "War Plan Orange."

    It was "Plan Orange" that was used to defeat Japan during WW ll.

    I read somewhere that during WW ll the Japanese had soldiers who were fluent in a number of American Indian languages but not in Navajo.

    My old buddy Lewie Smith told me that he had read a book about Adolf Hitler and
    near the end of his life Adolf is said to have stated......"If I had two divisions of Canadians
    I could have won the war........ and if I had two divisions from the 48 Tribes I could have sent my
    army home!"

    He mean the 48 North American tribes.....
    whose heroism in warfare is quite legendary.........

    Yes, history carries the legends of Native warriors that properly impel fantasy of amazing human performance in violence, but the spirit warrior is unknown, and worked with spirit towards peace, adaptation, cooperation. The mightiest of all.

    If you start a thread, "Spirit Warrior", maybe in History and Culture, I will explain the traditional spirit warrior, non violent-warfare, that used the "coo" stick and truly advanced societies, peacefully, with dynamics that make us look like f'nn ignorant barbarians.

    It seems that I began this discussion coincidentally at 1:53... the number of fish in the net

    Native peoples contribution to modern American needs recognition. American needs to realize exactly what the 1st and 9th Amendments are, how to use them, how important they are.

    Hopefully First Nations people can recover their ancestors wisdom and use it to assure the continuity of life on Mother Earth as the knowledge was intended by the creator. By Americans honoring their sacrifices and contributions, which were certainly made to see the Creators law prevail, which the framers had the common sense to integrate in the constitution, they can feel a sense of fairness returning.

    because they respect the ways of Mother Earth so wisely.

    Hmmm, did they have any real choice to gain some influence and affluence? It was eastern gambling mafia that brought the idea and technology etc.

    Why haven't you mentioned the 1st and 9th Amendments? Do you know their origins?
