    CQFD: Peuple parfaitement adapté à la Nature Incompatible avec la Civilisation Chrétienne déconnectée de la Nature

    Why can't we just leave people the fuck alone.... Or at least be kind and friendly and helpful ❤️

    Just another example of the white man destroying indigenous people. Fucking disgusting and yet still the queen has a hold on so many countries of all the land that the indigenous people once owned yet was taken and they were killed and claimed as rhe queens yet to this day there is no reconciliation or apologies or even granting land back or whatever the case may be. Should wipe a few hundred milli white people out take what they own and confiscate it or just take it and build whatever we want

    Why people cant coexist, why coexistence comes with so much tension and animosity, my case in point, the colonists came and changed everything not only with diseases but by way of inhumane treatment.

    maybe they had ''brown adipose tissue'' to adapt to hypothermia?

    21 years ago I met the last remaining of that people, in Punta Arenas, in a bar while I was eating, asking for alms, they called it "pure". They told me about the people, when the Spaniards shot him with old arquebuses, the bullet did not penetrate the skin from so thick and hardened by the climate. kill them by committing genocide by bringing caravelle ships of sick with measles, an unknown disease. almost everyone died. 😭😡

    They were murdered and kill by colonial. Everything is fine until outsiders came and messed it up.

    Imagine how many marvelous things we would have learnt from them if they'd live... I'm chilean. There's a Channel sometimes shows images of them and the last Kawéskar descendent's poetic rime profecy. She speaks about the human-selfdestruction but the afterward reborn of it. Try to look for it. Maybe makes you cry as ever does everytime I listen to it.

    Thanking to nice Darwin's Evolution Theory we have lost one of our World's native people. The colonists thought as exact Darwin's way that they were less than beasts and didn't have the right to live. It's a pitty shame in the Universal History. Kawéskars are our extinct ancestors as Onas and Chonos by europian colonists...
