I was just pointing out that Ilvermorny wasn't the "whites-only; no natives need apply" place implied by the remark above mine calling it "THE ivory wizarding school."

Another way of looking at is this:

If the Native American peoples really were that close with the immigrating wizards, then the law concerning total isolation from the non-magicals would never have flown.

Reason being? It would mean that Native American peoples would have been barred from associating with each other just because the majority of them are non-magical.

So yeah. I'm still not seeing it.

Yasuri Nanami is my number one waifu, if only because she would horribly murder all the others if they didn't shut up and toe the line.

I wish to point out that Seattle was an individual, not a tribe. He's also famous for a speech that he probably never made.

I was saying in that line, that it could be like Harvard or Yale, the most prestigious college, not necessarily whites only. I also don't know the history of the American school system our colleges. If I've made a bad assumption, my bad.

Okay, folks, we're getting some conversational drift here. Why not take the discussion on Potter America to its own thread in the DW8 forum?
