There was no written version of Native American history, only the spoken words of elders…the storytellers of the tribes.
Native Americans saw the history of their land differently than the White Man. Filmed on location in the Great Smoky Mountains, this video gives a revealing historic overview of the Southeast Woodland and Plains Indian tribes…as they remembered it.
The early European settlers brought many new things to this land called America. They brought horses and guns. They brought mumps, measles and small pox that destroyed entire Indian nations. They even taught the Indians how to scalp their enemies.
The Indians in return, taught the Europeans the principles of democracy, the benefits of aspirin, how to make popcorn, glue and other useful items. They also taught them how to preserve the wonderful natural environment that the Creator had given to all people.
