Neither were the so-called native Americans indigenous to this continent. They migrated over the Bering Strait. There was no land to "acquire" wrongfully or otherwise.

And thus here first...becoming indigenous to the land. Then we all know what happened after that.

Are you really asking how the land was wrongfully acquired? Look, it's your choice if want to disregard the genocide that occurred.

How was it wrongfully acquired?

NOW, right or wrong, you should be able to acknowledge it without trying to cover it up or changing the subject " they had a weak military, they should have been stronger"

that being said, the thread is about simple acknowledging that the native American man was right.
I doubt anyone here would have a problem acknowledging the fact that Native Americans were here prior to the settlers. But, to the victor go the spoils.

Obviously, they were unable to protect their land. That's life. Again, it's a done deal, and no amount of whining by their descendants will alter history.

It was wrongfully acquired because much if it was taken, not purchased. Germany did not get to keep its annexed territories.

LMFAO. Lets not do that BS. You bringing it up had nothing to do with the conversation, saying that by me asking "what does it have to do with the conversation" makes it part of the conversation is moronic.

How am I deflecting? The guy is whining about the so-called "stolen land" is he not? He needs to move on, and get over it.
