Lately, I have been doing a lot of thinking about history, more specifically the history of what happened to the native populations of various countires after they were discovered by the Europeans. We know what happened from the Muggle end, but how do you think the wizarding world treated the peoples already inhabiting these new territories?
Do you think they were considered actual citizens of their country by the wizarding community? Do you think they were invited to their country's school right away, or do you think they were at first entrusted to their old traditions? How long do you think it was before they actually were invited?
Do you think in some cases, native populations were forced to attend European-run schools like what was done to the native populations of America and Australia?
Please include countries in your answers, but please do offer your thoughts and imputs.
