By dancing they manifested energy to use in magical ceremonies. This is the reason for many of the dances that have been forgotten or no longer practiced due to the boarding schools that prohibited the use of native language which in turn severed communication with the ancestor spirits .The ancestor spirits don't understand English They only understand the languages that they knew when they died , which would be their native tongue.

Did the Crusaders come to the US in the 1500's?

Yes and No. History will tell you that the Crusaders went to Israel with no intention on going anywhere else. Some people argue however that they must have come over at some point due to the rock inscribed with the Crusaders holy cross found in Indiana.

Most people, myself included, want to believe the finder of said rock made it himself.

There's a whole 2-hour special on the History Channel about it, The Holy Grail in America , i think it's called. Hope that gives you an idea.

Panama Canal

When the US decided to take over Cuba Panama Canal Somoas Philippines Hawaii ect. didn't like it cause racism and sterotypes and more people to hate us?

Generally speaking, no. Michael Montagne

why America decided to take over panama

The Americans took over the Philippine's, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Guam, after the Spanish American war, which had no bases, these were Spanish Colonies, the last ones they had over almost 400 years, but the Monroe Doctrine, wanted America for the Americans, the ones who lived in the USA of course so they took these lands and made these countries part of the USA empire, as Panama was part of Colombia but since the Colombian Government did not allow the building of the Panama Canal, they invented a country that we now know as Panama, and of course that way the canal was built, as far as Hawaii is concerned they had trade with the Hawaiian king but when he wanted to raise the price of the Hawaiian goods the Americans took over.

That is the way of the brave and the free, yeah right.
