What Flag Is That 11.18.21

Continuing with symbols of Host Nation peoples: The flag of The American Indian Movement.

I do wonder when we as a nation will face real honest history and admit and confess what people who were convinced of ‘manifest destiny’ did to the people who were here in the first place. How can you ‘discover’ someplace where there are already people living.

In 1973 when I worked in Race Relations for the US Army, my boss handed me ‘Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee’ and said, here – read this. For almost 50 years it has been on my heart: how and why could this happen? We were not discovered, we took.

Real issues need to be confronted.
