Pope Ratzo the First brings back some fond memories among the faithful:
Indigenous leaders in Brazil have reacted angrily to Pope Benedict's comments that their predecessors had willingly converted to Christianity.
One Amazon Indian leader, Jecinaldo Satere Mawe, said the Pope's remarks had been arrogant and disrespectful.
Pope Benedict XVI told Latin American bishops in Brazil that American Indians had been "silently longing" to become Christians 500 years ago.
Not to be outdone, Canadian aboriginals immediately protested that they remember how unsatisfying life was like before residential schools, while native Americans could only wax nostalgic about the old days and how empty their lives felt before the arrival of smallpox-infected blankets.
