There are native Americans when you get to the Blackwater missions.

@taxman: Actually, some of the things I've seen that corroborates the time period choice are the usage of motor cars (again, later in the game) and hold 'em, which didn't debut until the early 1900s. Plus, the story takes place at the end of the "wild west" era (Wikipedia marks the end of the Mexican revolution as being the end).

Trying before you buy reduces that risk.

Isn't that the risk of an open market? I don't know if I'm going to enjoy the Tiramisu, but do you think I'd be within my rights to demand a dessert, and then only pay if I enjoyed it? Because that's essentially what you're saying is a valid reason.

Real Programmers don't write in FORTRAN. FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and crystallography weenies. FORTRAN is for wimp engineers who wear white socks.
