The native Americans practiced slavery, where is your outrage?

It was well known that the Native Americans enslaved the people of the tribes they conquered.

However, I have never seen any liberal outraged because of this

    Interesting point ,slavery among native American tribes was the road to being accepted as a member of that tribe . Slavery was not in perpetuity nor did it make you of inferior status.

    The "The Five Civilized Tribes" of North American Indians also enslaved Black people. Only the Blacks living with the Seminole Indians had any rights.

    According to history, slavery has been one of the oldest practice in the world. All civilizations, from primitive to advanced, practised it as a natural way of life. Wars often provided the easiest opportunity to acquire 'cheap labour' and deprivation of individual liberty.

    However, it appears that a large number of enslaved people - who could belong to any race - led happy and even successful lives, and many of these bought or were given their freedom within the same societies.

    But one can also imagine that there was also abuse in such practice, since humanity can be cruel as well as generous. But to claims that one race only can be viewed as being guilty of enslaving other human beings is misleading.

      I'm afraid it still exists in non-systematic form in a number of countries (which cannot be named). Women seem to be at the receiving end of such form of slavery. But it is just as ugly and humiliating.

      Conservatives never stopped raping, murdering, or oppressing blacks after the Civil War for over a hundred years and they still do to some extent.

    In Salem, MA, men and women were accused of practicing witchcraft and Christians crushed to death by stone or hung them. I have never seen any conservative express outrage because of this.

      People who claim Christianity would burn people to death just for being catholic or protestant.

    Was it "slavery" or "hostage taking" during guerilla warfare, in retaliation for invading and settling on their lands, driving out their food sources and then themselves?

    The whites raided and destroyed native villages too, killing their women and children. Perhaps it was "You kill our women and children so we will take yours and make them ours."

    This people were war captives and actually treated decently. Their children were not automatic slaves but were, instead, new members of the tribe and the captive could win their freedom after so many years.
