  •  What an important diary (6+ / 0-)

    There have been so many untold horrors visited upon our native people.  We always say the nation's original sin is slavery, but I would add to that...  Part of that sin is the way natives were treated.

    I'm still hoping for a national apology, the likes of Australia.  I'm hoping that with a new Obama administration that this could become a reality and a springboard for healing.

    Thanks for writing this diary!
