FLORIDA, April 3, 2012 — Multiculturalism continues to be a powerful political force in American culture. America was founded as a nation of immigrants, and while immigrants added to the richness of American Indian culture (look no farther than the horse and the Plains Indians), their spread across the continent was also at American Indians’ expense.

What is the general feeling about illegal immigrants among American Indians today? If amnesty is ultimately granted to them, what sort of impact can this be expected to have on American Indian communities? In this second part of our discussion, Comanche David Yeagley explains.

During the years ahead, it seems likely that multiculturalism will continue to gain traction. From your perspective, is this a positive development for Native Americans/American Indians?

Dr. David A. Yeagley: It will be devastating to Indians for the reasons I stated earlier. Mixing people means interracial sex, mixed-race children, etc. There are not enough Indians to survive this much longer.  

Race is precious. Our race, to us, is most precious of all. However, too many Indian women, seeking something better, will mate with any number of races these days. Indian men are considered promiscuous. 

We are, in a very real sense, a defeated people. Our Indian women know it. They often do not respect Indian men or even the concept of marriage. Indian men have not set a worthy example. I see a dire future for Indian people in this regard. 

Whatever our social values were in the old days, they are not going to sustain us in the future. We have to have clearer, more stringent values.  

Cotto: America was founded as a nation of immigrants at Native Americans/American Indians’ expense. How would you describe the general opinion about illegal immigrants among Native Americans/American Indians today?

Dr. Yeagley: I do not accept the notion that American was founded by immigrants. This is a fallacy. Where did they register? With whom did they apply for citizenship? Who gave them their certification? This country was founded by escapees. Indians may look at them as invaders, but they really weren’t. They were runaways from Europe.  

Those that formed the American government in New England were essentially refugees. They built what they did with their own hands, allowed to do such by Indians in the beginning. The country of America belongs to the white, particularly the White Anglo-Saxon Protestants. All others were add-ons. Immigrants were such only after the establishment of government and nationhood. I’d say 1776. The country was not founded by immigrants. That came later.  

Indians are not articulate about immigration. We are who we are, and generally speaking, Indians don’t see this as an issue that affects us. The tribes along the borders do, of course, but, in general, not so much. Of course, in the north country, in the sparsely populated states, the government is bringing in trainloads of Third World refugees, and the churches are aiding in this. These people are close to uncivilized, and they are mostly from Africa. They prey on poor Indian women, almost immediately.

So, immigration, legal or illegal is, or should be, of great concern to American Indians.

Our indifference in these things, our lack of action, our lack of strength, is a terrible weakness, which foreigners quickly take advantage of. Muslims have used reservations, frightfully, in the eastern United States, and are trying to infiltrate all the major tribes.

I for one am against it, intensely. I frankly don’t want to see any more immigrants in this country — legal or illegal. Time to close the doors. 

The reservations should most definitely be closed. Indian people need to concentrate on our own survival. Kindness, charity, tolerance, these are the enemies of a nation — when the supply runs out.    

Cotto: If amnesty is ultimately granted to illegal immigrants, what sort of impact do you expect this to have on Native American/American Indian communities? 

Dr. Yeagley: If amnesty is granted to the near 45 million illegals in this country (not the standard media number of 11 or 12 million), I think Indians should all forfeit our citizenship. To be classified with the weak of the world is not for us. No one in the world could have fought as long and as hard as we did against the Great Whites. That honor is ours alone.  

Why should Indians rejoice to see the invasion of the Third World? Or any other world? We’ve been through that once. Isn’t that enough? Do we think we will somehow benefit this time? None of these people, from anywhere in the world, could ever have defeated the American Indians. We owe them not the time of day, let alone honor.  

Do Indians think we would have gotten a better deal from Mao? From Pol Pot? Or from Ferdinand, Stalin, or Hitler? We were lucky it was the WASP who landed on our shores, and who created a country. And, again, we alone fought him. We did not fight the Chinese, the Arabs, or the Samoans. These people could never, ever have defeated us. The Great Whites are they with whom we have to do, no other people.
