  I've also noticed that the Civil War groups don't seem to allow 
Indonesian personas at their events.  Just another case of shutting
out less important cultures? :-)  

  Seriously, The Society's focus, as has been pointed out, is on Western
culture during a particular period of time.  This is not meant to say

something that would be really neat to include.  But without that focus, 
we would end up eventually with U.S G.I.s with M-16s* side-by-side with
with Cro-Magnum each trying to pretend it is normal for his or her
