Undoing historical wrongs to our Native American citizens

 


Imagine a scenario today in which the federal government, with no due process, forcibly removed children of a specific race from their homes and placed them into a boarding school more than a thousand miles away from their family and friends.

Or imagine the outcry if the federal government were to subject a certain race of citizens into forced labor as a condition of receiving benefits he or she has a trust and/or treaty obligation to receive. Such patronizing superiority would not be tolerated in today's society, and there would be a public outcry against such blatant discrimination.

Yet these are examples of federal laws that are still on the books today with regard to our Native American citizens. It is time to officially remove these historical wrongs from the books.
