In actual history, the Christians took the native's children away to civilize them in missionary schools. <blockquote>It established boarding schools which children were required to attend. In these schools they were forced to speak English, study standard subjects, attend church, and leave tribal traditions behind.</blockquote> --Wikipedia.

Obviously this was before the traditional family became the foundation of society.

The Indians are the Lost Tribes of Israel, according to the Jehovah's Witnesses. Mormon's talk about 'em too.

Disney can only make decent live action movies if they bought the property after it was in development (i.e. The Avengers, which was developed by Marvel Studios before they were bought by Disney, and even that had its facepalm moments).
