I found this very interesting to read, they join a host of other "forgotten" people, worldwide. As Tinker Taylor said, reminiscent of how the indigenous people, not only in america, Australia and many other places, were treated by so-called superior ethnic groups, mostly of European origins. Here in Oz things are still not right.
