The budget shortfall to the Indian Health Service continues. As an upper middle income country, Namibia is ineligible for a second compact. In pre-Columbian times, the Cherokee probably controlled at least 100,000 square miles of territory, and may have had more than a half million people.� America’s Southeast was the most densely populated part of North America, and warfare and empire building were not unknown.� The Cherokee lived in palisaded towns in their heartland.� Soto was the last European to see those lands in close to their 1492 condition.� Mississippian cultures built large mounds, as palaces, cemeteries, and temples.� Those types of structures have only been built in densely populated regions.� By the time Soto saw those lands, the populations had probably already been reduced by European disease.� After Soto visited that desolate former empire, his entrada wandered through territory that was partly the Cherokee’s, as well as other tribes.� After Soto, a few more smallpox epidemics made their way through the area before the English began invading the region.

Progress has been slow to reach the interior of the country although clear changes are evident in Kinshasa and Lubumbashi. The Fren chman Voltaire spent his first stint behind bars in 1717 for his satirical writings, and his work came to epitomize an era known as the Enlightenment, which was well established by 1750.� France was its heart, and philosophers across Western Europe, in Great Britain most particularly, embraced the movement.� Paradoxically, as imperial rivals batted across the globe for supremacy, their Enlightenment theorists argued for the inherent equality of all people.� Today’s scholars legitimately wonder just how influential the European experience in the New World was to its Enlightenment philosophers, where truly egalitarian societies were witnessed, which was far removed from the European experience. [128] The collision of Great Britain's and France’s rivalry, the Enlightenment, and the ambition of British colonists led to the American Revolution and the birth of a new kind of empire.� The profits of slavery helped fuel British efforts, both the chattel slavery in North America and the Caribbean, as well as the imperial exploitation that Great Britain imposed on India.� The most prominent British colonists in America were often slaveholders.� Founding Fathers such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Ben Franklin (and even “Give-me-liberty-or-give-me-death” Patrick Henry) were affluent slaveholders.� Washington was probably the richest man in America when he became president.� The Europ eans played divide-and-conquer from the very beginnings of their invasions, and natives rarely realized the European game and put aside their differences to form a united front.� Far too often, testosterone overrode the brains and hearts of young men, which thwarted the attempts of elders to maintain peace among the tribes. [129] � The Fr ench, partly because they had far fewer colonists in the New World, and partly because they were less arrogant and exterminatory than the English, had friendlier relations with the natives, although the French could also be genocidists.� French attempts to exterminate the Fox tribe alienated their native allies, which ultimately diminished French efforts in the region. [130] � After a generation of warfare, the fiercely independent Fox (who called themselves the Mesquaki) were very weakened by 1730, and living in present-day Wisconsin.� They tried escaping, to go live with the Seneca in present day New York, but their flight was detected.� About three-quarters of the remaining Fox were women, children, and the elderly.� After a siege of a hastily constructed fort in a stand of trees, the Fox asked to surrender, but the French gave no quarter and the tribe was nearly exterminated, with several hundred killed.� The survivors were parceled out to French-allied tribes. [131] � The Dela ware tribe is of Algonquin origin, and they call themselves the Lenape.� When Europeans arrived, they had been living on the North America’s east coast, occupying today’s New Jersey and vicinity, for thousands of years.� They were consi dered the eldest of the region’s tribes and had great respect.� Their first contact with Europeans was with the Italian explorer Verrazano, working on behalf of France in 1524. [132] � Verrazano tried kidnapping the friendly natives.� Slave raids were about the only times that coastal natives saw white people for the next 80 years of European contact, which understandably made them a bit hostile toward the invaders.� When Europe's invasion began in earnest, warfare and disease quickly decimated the Delaware, and they were forced to relocate about 20 times before ending up in today’s Oklahoma.
