Where are my native americans...

looks like Obama admin, has chosen to smack the face of our people by confusing this, more than food consumption, week with the indians of a dot rather than feather.

I wonder how long we should put up with this blatant disregard for our people and land in exchange for the false transplants who dig their greedy, carpet-bagging claws in our soil as they privately wave their flags and rejoice at their successes and the power their mother nation gains at the expense of our lost industries. Its obvious white america is oblivious to this attempt at making america just another piece of "the world", for all other nations to acquire and occupy our sacredness. They are too busy living high on the hill and looking for the next dollar from any foreigner as long as they have their land, money and childrens future cared for. This land never mattered to them. Its the mighty dollar.

  • OP HERE: its the principle of the week. This is a sacred week as Christmas is meant for Christ; Thanksgiving is not possible without the generosity of the Native and their eventual and continuous destruction; while Native Reservations suffer from lack of resources which were deemed TOO GOOD for them alone, while those with the all mighty dollar drown in abundance of consumption for their precious lawns and golf courses and spas, to include these ostentacious foreigners who leave their land for what? MORE? This dinner PARTY has overshadowed what is a solemn week for my native blood that continues to drip for the sake of carpet bagging foreigners.

  • Oh, I get it. The OP is upset that she isn't getting what she feels she is entitled to. She is stuck in history and is seeking to continue to be compensated for injustices to her ANCESTORS. Well, guess what? All of our ancestors suffered some sort of injustice. We can't all get compensated forever.

    Being born as a native American you automatically had advantages that most of us didn't. You were blessed with the same opportunities and promise all American children are born with. It is sad that so many squander their birthright and then blame others for their shortcomings.

    Thanksgiving is a uniquely AMERICAN holiday. Why can't we all just be Americans for at least 1 day a year?

  • Washington (CNN) -- President Obama said Thursday that the federal government was guilty of mistreating Native Americans in the past and promised to forge a new relationship between the federal government and tribal leaders.

    "You deserve to have a voice," Obama told representatives of 386 tribes at a White House Tribal Nations Conference. "You will not be forgotten as long as I'm in this White House."

    Obama signed a memorandum directing federal agencies to submit recommendations within 90 days on how best to improve tribal participation in key government policy decisions.

    Leaders of all 564 federally recognized tribes were invited to the daylong meeting.
    Obama acknowledged misdeeds by the U.S. government in dealing with Native Americans.

  • Not I don't think she is a bigot. The thing is that Native Americans were called Indians because Colombus was confused and thought he was in INDIA. We aren't celebrating people from India and Pilgrims on this day because people from India didn't help found our country. Pilgrims and Native Americans did. Are we glad we are diverse and people from all over the world join our great nation? Of course! BUT people from India aren't the ones who founded this country and never will be. Celebrate that our country became what it is today because of our ancestors- native americans and pilgrams... no matter what your heritage you have benefited from what they began on this land.
