Rupert Murdoch

Cecil Rhodes

The Sandwich Islands are not the same as Otaheite nor as the Fijis, from which they are distant about 4,000 miles, nor are their people of the same race. The natives are not cannibals, and it is doubtful if they ever were so. Their idols only exist in missionary museums.

P. J. O’Rourke

As soon as I arrived in the Indies, in the first island which I found, I took some of the natives by force, in order that they might learn and might give me information of whatever there is in these parts.

Millennials regularly draw ire for their cell phone usage. They’re mobile natives, having come of age when landlines were well on their way out and payphones had gone the way of dinosaurs. Because of their native fluency, Millennials recognize mobile phones can do a whole lot more than make calls, enable texting between friends or tweeting.

Chelsea Clinton

In the past, some natives used to collude with Britishers. In the same way, YSRCP is now colluding with Centre.

N. Chandrababu Naidu

Vivek Wadhwa

My friends adore ‘TOWIE’ – the TV documentary series, ‘The Only Way is Essex.’ They like it, I’m afraid, for the most unworthy of reasons: class mockery. They tune in to wonder in a ‘can you believe those people?’ way at the natives of Brentwood and Buckhurst Hill.

Peter York

A second type of direct evidence is formed by statements, whether as formal legends or personal information, regarding the age or relative sequence of events in tribal history made by the natives themselves.

Adam Cohen

Historical records show that Abenakis and other Natives encountered European explorers and traders in Canada looking for sources of ivory to compete with the Russian trade in Siberian fossil mammoth ivory – these traders routinely asked about ivory ‘horns’ and teeth.

Adrienne Mayor

William Dampier

We cannot solve the STEM gender gap without solving it for millennials. They’re our first digital natives, and they’re willing to learn quickly.

Caroline Ghosn

Caroline Ghosn

Pamela Druckerman

William Prescott

Technology is something you have to embrace because technology is part of our generation.

Millennials aren’t too far behind: my generation of people, who were in the mix of the Internet when it first came out.

Jon Batiste

The remarkable thing about ‘Avatar’ is the degree to which the technology is integral to the story. It is important to show Pandora and its Na’Vi natives in 3-D because ‘Avatar’ is fundamentally about the moral necessity of seeing other beings fully.

Adam Cohen

We think that there is this terrible idea that the kids are digital natives… and they know what they’re doing, but all the evidence says that they’re hanging around going, ‘Where are you, I’m here, can I post my picture?’ They’re not actually writing wikis; they’re not actually listening to great poets live.

Beeban Kidron

Many Lexington natives believe they live in a special place, one impossible to leave. I’m not so sure about that – or it’s more accurate to say I think a more general truth exists beneath it: the place you first call home stays with you always, whether you remain or go.

Kim Edwards

The Italian character in general is full of animation, and the natives enter into the interests and welfare of the stranger before them with a fervor that forbids all doubt of its sincerity and that is truly surprising.

William Godwin

Exploitation was rampant before statehood, and various factions actively tried to eradicate the roots of Hawaiian culture in the process of converting the natives to European religious beliefs. Some of the results can never be undone. We try to honor what is left.

Todd Rundgren
