National Congress Of American Indians Releases Anti-Redskins Ad

No where in the history of mankind has a nation stood so tall as our #UnitedStatesof #America.

But the #DeclarationOfIndependence launched the racism that plagues the culture of our United States to this day. Let us not forget this passage, written for posterity by our Founding Fathers, to describe the continent's Indigenous Peoples:

, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
... as the last of the "... Facts be submitted to a candid world" when our Founding Fathers severed ties with the tyranny of the King of Great #Britain.

The spirit, timelessness and integrity of history's most sacred document remain unaffected when the above clauses are removed. In 2014, even the #SupremeCourtOf The United States would deem the nakedness of such discriminatory diatribe UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

We all understand what our forefathers are conveying with, "He [the king]* has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers."

Let #ThePeople bring #justice for our Indigenous Peoples, the nations & tribes whose land #ManifestDestiny seized, their livelihoods, cultures, traditions & way of life stolen, #terrorized & erased by invaders.

Let #truth & #transparency bring #integrity back for ALL of The People.
#TimeForChange. #Snohomish Tribe.
