Isn't it amazing how people always want to destroy what they don't understand.....even if it takes lying or murder?? Since the time of Christopher Columbus, all Native people have wanted is to be left alone to live their lives and raise their children. But the white man in his infinite wisdom and greed couldn't let that happen.
I never felt sorry for Long Hair Custer.....he got what he deserved at the Little Big Horn. But my heart has always been saddened at what happened to those men, women and children at Wounded Knee. I still can't believe that "Christian men" would allow their bodies to lay in the snow and freeze before being tossed into a mass grave, as if they were no more than a pack of wild dogs.
Of course, you don't have to look beyond Leavenworth Prison in Kansas and prisoner Leonard Peltier to know that it's still happening. I would give up my life if people would wake up, take off the blinders and TRY to do something to right just a few of the wrongs that have been heaped on the Native Americans. I still cry every time I think about Bill Clinton refusing to grant Leonard Executive Clemency. He could toss out pardons to people like his brother or a man that fled the country to escape prosecution....but not to an innocent man like Leonard.
