For my Anthropology 200 Natives of Alaska class I had to watch a film called Aleut Island and write a short report about it.
The film talks about the US using the Aleuts as slave labor and decimating them in internment camps during WWII. You know, normal stuff.
Here’s a link to a PDF copy of the report if you’d like to read it.
We Brits have a lot of this sort of stuff in out history, more than you Americans I guess.
I think the gift of our history is to read it, understand what it means, learn from it, and therefore, make sure you don’t do the same stupid crap again. That’s all you can do.
You can’t change the past but you can sure as hell change the future.
