  1. The original Miss America, Native Americans should have built a wall to keep Columbus and pilgrams out.

    Just another foot to mouth statement, ounion juice

  3. Dread says:

    St. David’s people have nothing to do with native Americans, Bermudians need to stop claiming everyone and everything.

    • Burchall says:

      Your statement is actually false. My family hails from St. Davids, and we can trace our family history back to the Pequot Tribe.

    I am a St. David’s Islander—a well educated one, and I speak truth because that is the way SDI were raised. We have no need to mislead anyone. To the naysayers, please do some research before you speak. We are connected to the Pequots, Arawak and several other tribes. The Gombeys originated in SDI as well. The Warwick Gombeys are led by a family who originated from SDI. Research takes us back many centuries, so please before you speak or write untruths or just “off the cuff”, take a trip to the Archives! Thank you.
