Dogs of Colonial America – Helped Pilgrims and Puritans:
Explorers’ Dogs – Often Used as Weapons
Native Americans used dogs as guards, hunters, fishermen, food, pets and beasts of burden to haul firewood and tents.
Many of these breeds are used for hunting squirrels, raccoons, bear, feral hogs, mountain lions and opossums.
“Native Americans used dogs to hunt with and to protect their families and their teepees when on hunting expeditions or warring with other tribes.
Throughout the history of America, dogs have played a major role in the everyday lives of explorers, early frontiersmen and Native Americans and continue to do so today.
The Rokon can also be used for fun riding- – going into terrain where no other vehicle can travel, plowing through briar thickets, pushing through riverbank cane, climbing mountains and crossing streams
Retired Brigadier General Ernie Audino says, " I introduced the U.S. Army to the Rokon that could carry all the extras and heavy gear, stay close to a squad of soldiers and if necessary evacuate a casualty. No other vehicle could compare to what the Rokon could do."
The Rokon motorcycle (www.rokon.com) can go where no other vehicle dares through sifting sand, water more than waist high, gumbo mud, high rocky terrain and woods with no paths, trails or firebreaks.
Has patented front suspension for a smooth ride, even in demanding terrain like mud, sand or snow;
an invisible stretcher that stows away under the seat of the rider and outrigger wheels that make the vehicle more stable and able to carry an injured person on the Rokon’s back, regardless of the type of terrain.
“Fire jumpers who have field tested the Fire Ranger say it enables them to make the most of their equipment.”
