Noble Savages and Noble Nations
In American Indian history there are often characterizations of Native peoples as “noble savages.” The expression is a European term based on European understandings and culture. The expression savage often means “the other,” someone of a different culture and moral code. Usually the term savage is applied in a derogatory manner, meaning someone without culture, although the meaning of savage more literally is a people of a different culture.

Using such words proves to me they have no understanding!!!
