Like I've said before the Indians had poor immigration policies and look what happened. We should learn from history.

The Indians had a great immigration policy. They just didn't have the weapons to enforce it.

There were many atrocities committed by many Indian tribes at various times, and there were many atrocities committed against many Indian tribes. Bottom line is that was just a brutal period in history where the strongest (or most well armed) ruled. Actually that pretty well describes most of human history. All we can do is remember what happened and try to do better.
