    Modern Native Americans
    Perspective of a Navite: Our people once spanned an entire continent, from the East Coast all the way to the West Coast, without concern for boundaries. With the ever-growing level of settlement throughout the country the native people have been restricted to small areas outside of our ancestral homelands. How can you expect our people to maintain traditions when we cannot raise our children in the land of their forefathers? We lost many of our people to violence of settlers and the military.
