November 24, 2017"Sadly, as Native Americans, we routinely have to remind people that we have not died off. I'm not kidding... Given all the pains Native Americans have suffered throughout the centuries...is it so much to ask not to lump Native American Heritage Day -- a day meant to honor us -- with a consumer holiday that has no honor?
