Dave - Of course. You think they gave that up on their own?
I regard that as extremely improbable. How do you stop people from using a
language? Old languages have been dying worldwide for a very long time.
And how do you stop a religion? I doubt the reservations were stocked with
feds who stopped religious ceremonies.
Of course, you say? How about some evidence, not a 'blame it all on the
white man' kind of attitude?
