Well it's done, over and can't be helped...and there maybe some consolation in that. That's what they say in Turkey when they cut the wrong man's head off.

Layla:

You have intresting points to consider. There was (as in most things) not a single reason for choosing a special or holy place or the lack of interest in some awesome vistas.

Dennett is very good in his explaining brain evolution but I would like to see it applied in more of a specific history of of the American native customs and religion. It is just an interest I have. :)

Doing a bit of historical research of native Americans and their geographical holy places, such as the Black Hills of South Dakota, the area is quite beautiful. But to me and other European descendants, there are more awesome places such as Devils Tower, Belle Fourche river or Yellowstone Park area. My question is: Did the native Americans have the same emotional experience of these vistas as European explorers had? It would seem there is some difference and how much cultural emotional baggage involved.
