To the editor: Our voice in this new country today should say, “Stop the constant battle with itself (the U.S. government), regarding its First People and roots of America and rather recognize the grandfather rights of all federally recognized tribes of America and their sovereign jurisdictions and respect the true character of tribal freedom for the tribes and human rights, civil rights, right to traditional food and promote clean land and waters (the right to clean drinking water for human consumption).”
Regarding our own governments today, they are all promoting more use of fossil fuels for profit and later dump those “after-poisons” in our American public, tribal, state and federal lands and waters — drinking waters, rivers, lakes, etc. — and should be a capital crime. It is bad business and a great disappointment against Native American culture and custom.
Today, we hold dearly, in our hearts, our great Native American ancestors, great war chiefs, homeland security warriors, U.S. veterans of World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Korea and Pacific wars, and today’s conflicts in the world against evil.
Our Native American and Alaska Native languages also saved Uncle Sam in World War II and protected our rights and freedom as Americans today and, for this, please respect our grandfather and tribal rights.
Thank you, my fellow Americans.
