Letter to the Native American Indian Nation
To The Native American Indian Nation
To The Native American Indian Nation:
I am but one person, I know it will not mean much, but it is all that I can do. I would like to apologize to each and everyone of you for the injustices that have been done to your people. I am sorry that it has taken so long to do this, but until now I did not know how.
I am an American Citizen and as such feel that I should accept responsibility, in part, for the plight of your people. The lies that have been told to you over the years come from the people we, as American’s have elected to office. For that I can only apologize.
Giving you land for which you would have already owned, is not enough. All the things that are ‘given’ to you by our Government, is not enough. Our Government continues to interfere with your lives. Yet they won’t ’give’ you what you really want. Your Freedom to live as you should.
I am sure there are others who feel the same way as I do, that you as a whole have been treated wrong. There is no other word for it. Yet you have survived. That goes to show how strong you really are.
The world is changing, we are headed for disasters unknown to us. It will be a sad day for those who do not have the History behind us to tell us what to do. Or for that matter, how to live. Your History and the people who have passed before you, told their stories and have given you the tools you will need to survive. In this area you are blessed.
Will you once again show us how to survive in the land that will be strange to us? Only time will tell, if you should choose not to, personally I will not blame you. History has shown us what being kind to others will bring.
I hope that as sad as it is, the things that I have seen on Television will continue. So that others will get to see and feel the same as I do. That an apology IS necessary and maybe we can help in some way to understand and get the people elected who can and will do something to free you from the confines in which you are bound.
