After the uproar caused by the multi-lingual Coca-Cola commercial and the trending of the #speakamerican hashtag, Cody Pata, of the Paskenta Nomlaki tribe, had something to say about speaking American.

“The hashtag #speakamerican trended like cancer across social media in response to Coca-Cola’s Super Bowl commercial which featured ‘America the Beautiful’ sung in different languages,” Pata said in an email to Indian Country Today Media Network. “This video is my native language response on how to ‘speak American.’”
