Several false reports about the history of Indigenous Peoples in North America are drawing attention from misinformed readers that accept anything on the Internet as true. The fault lies with the educational systems failing to teach individuals how to read historynews, and sales literature and how to recognize the difference.

Much of these come from a tourist guidebook written for commercial gain and the promotion of tourism. While entertaining and longer than usual guidebooks for tourists, it remains limited in that it is not based on the facts gathered by archeology during the past several hundred years and does not include any interviews or other data from the ethnic groups involved.  It was written without them. Better information is readily available here:

Totem Poles in the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, New Zealand and Japan before 1700
