I thought it was o.k. it would of been better had they interviewed more Modocs. Not all what was said was exact but overall got the message out.

Funny, if you thought I ment oklahoma you were wrong. What I was saying was I thought the show was just o.k. it could have been better. That it would have been better if they interviewed other people rather than the few they did. Maybe, people who were actually Modocs rather than grasping the spotlight when it rarely shines. The ones who are Klamaths until something comes up about the Modoc War, then they suddenly become modoc and say they are part modoc.

It was distasteful seeing Lynn Anderson provide a historical perspective on the war - regardless if one is Modoc, Klamath, or Yahooskin!

Rather than making us listen to your lack of contribution from YOUR historical perspective!
Why don't you make the sequel to this documentary so we can know who what and where was suppose to be in this presentation!
By you repressed, know so much more historians! Prove that you have the right to badmouth the people in Rocky 1!!!
Give us what we should know bunch of cry babies!! You disrespect the ancestors who fought the war with you bellyaching!!

Why would anyone want to make a sequel when the first one wasn't very good? I don't understand Rocky 1? what does that have to do with the Modoc war? By the way, it was the Modoc War, not other mixed confused, don't know who they are Indians. I believe people were just stating it could and should have been done better. Sounds like you were one of the ones in it so you have a problem with someone calling you out on it. By the way, I would never disrespect my ancestors, the ones who really were in the Modoc War. The real Modocs!

No I wasn't in it! And your so called sincere chanticleer perspective is nothing but annoying! I try to respect your opinion, but it's words with no substance! And I'm not gonna draw a picture for you every time when you can't figure it out!
So then how would you have made this documentary on PBS any better, what would your sequel be? One who likes to hear himself talk!
I certainly wouldn't have wanted you at my side in a battle, we would have been shot while you were busy talking!

Now you are starting to talk like that wanna be fake indian Perry Chesnut, and I probably wouldn't want you by me in battle either.
I would suspect you would shoot me instead of the real enemy of my people. If you are truly Modoc, stand up for them not just lip service.
