When the North American continent was first being advertised as "FREE", thousands upon millions of people from Europe came flooding the eastern part of what will later be called The United States of America.
These people left Europe because they were religiously excluded due to their different beliefs and ideas. This was a time where new religions were being born and mainstream people seeing these new takes on reality were feeling threatened by new establishments.
So, being already seen as complete psychopaths, these religious groups were again booted and were forced to trek west to where they would be known as "pioneers" where the trip was a tough one.
They would later tell tales of how they were able to defend themselves against the Native Americans and how awful it was that they were being attacked for no apparent reason.
Today in America white people feel connected and appreciate the pioneers and what they have done for them.
Native Americans can say different.
The Mormons were pioneers as they made their way across the nation to create and preserve a new found future.
