Betrayal ain't cool.

Dealing with Indians was pretty difficult.  You might befriend them.  Then, if you happened to make friend with a tribe they hated, they viewed you as their enemy.  Shit like that went on all the time.

Carson dealt with lots of tribes, and even spoke about 6 or 7 tribal languages. Plus, of course, he dealt with settlers, the US government, etc.

I the relationship with one tribe went south, I don't know that I'd put that all on Carson.

Teddy probably embodies the American Spirit of the 20th Century as much as anybody, and did a lot to shape how we think about things like conservation, the environment, monopolies, and even America's place in the world.

Carson was very cool, if you get down to the individual level, and are just talking about one guy out living his life, having an impact, and being all about what America stood for at the time.
