What Would Native Independence Day Look Like?

ICTMN Staff
7/4/13

As the rest of the country celebrates its Independence Day, it has left us wondering what a Native American Independence Day would look like.

That day would certainly be a day when Indian mascots like the Redskins are no longer used and sacred placees are no longer desecrated and vandalized.

That day would also be when development companies stop digging up the ancestors and they are returned to their proper place and when the government apologizes for the genocide of Native people.

That day would be when there is no more poverty on reservations and Indian children get the quality education they deserve.

Check out this website that lists many more ways to an Independence Day for Native Americans.

What’s your idea of Native Independence Day?
