The other day I was having a discussion with my friend at work about how my grandparents (who are Alaskan native) were sent to boarding schools and had their mouths washed out with soap if they spoke their language. I explained that Christianity was forced upon them. Her response was "well its not like they believed in OUR god" huge emphasis on the OUR god part. I can expect this from someone who upon learning that I'm native said "wow I had no idea cause its not like you ever see attractive natives! you are obviously more than you look" It just bothers me that this is the norm.
