Reply to "US: $3B to end royalty dispute with Indian tribes"

Reference:
But that wasn't the majority though, right? The majority of Native Americans were not slaveowners and some tribes actually helped runaways. Not to mention Native Americans and AFricans were enslaved side by side in the early 1600's along the carolina/georgia coastal regions.
If they were, at some point the NA opted out of being 'slaves' and decided to own Africans. Additionally, these are the same tribes who marched across the U.S. in the trail of tears. Also the Seminoles have expelled their Freedmen. All for the purpose of money, so the wouldn't have to divide it with them.
My point here is that we need to stop buying into the fallacy that Native Americans didn't own africans as slaves and that they cannot be racists. My other point is there is no way that this is affecting African Americans quest for restitution.
I've explained my position 'no' on this, someone please explain their 'yes' position.
And the majority of white people didn't own slaves either, but we still don't like them. At least I don't.
