I have native friends, and have had relationships, though I reluctantly use the term native or indigenous, rather, the pre-colonial term before the binary political nomenclature, i.e. friend, or, person who was born here, or just stranger, but nothing which puts them into a minority identity, other than to add some explanation should it be in the context of any pressing concern, that my friend's ancestors preceded the arrival of the so and so who colonized the land, for an historian, or to make anecdotal conversation about the habitats of certain animals and how to trap or kill them for food and skins, if it was permitted. But otherwise they are just like everyone else and I treat them so.
I know you are the same one anon, I think I know who, and I suspect another instance of Le Way Deranged Syndrome.
