I doubt it. Native North Americans were always at war with each other for control of land or other resources. Plains indians had to follow the herds and if it was a hard year then they might have to fight with the neighbors to get close enough to hunt. Agrarian tribes had to stake claim to land that they could farm. If not owned by individuals, these acres were, at least, owned by the community. As with all cultures, property is only theft when someone is trying to take your property.

That's going to leave a mark.
