    Native Americans are the pillars of our beautiful country, they maintained the resources, fertility and the beauty of our land long before the Europeans invaded it. Once the Europeans settled here they literally began to steal, plunder and strip the Natives from what was theirs. To make things worse, they began to demonize them and then murdered 100 million Native Americans to complete their purpose of superiority. Unfortunately, the racism and hatred towards the Native Americans continues by a small percentage of Caucasians that remain trapped in what occurred 4-5 centuries ago and the Civil War. Our Native Americans should be respected, honored, aided in times of hardships protected from hatred, hunger and diseases, not abused, ignored, disrespected or disregarded as human beings. It's time for change and that change starts from the top of leadership on down.
