But this is 200+ years later and most of the descendants are gone now. Many of us have ancestors that came here after being forced off their land in European countries and there is no chance we could go back and claim that land. I was quite surprised that Timbo described the Indians that are now left as "a few leftover rag-tag tribes".

You couldn't be more wrong. Atrocities have happened far more recently and other examples of such treatment still exist today.

All the more reason why Native American's are entitled to certain restitutions.

You need to greatly expand your grasp of history.
