Federally Recognize Hundreds of Disenfranchised Native American Tribes

Target: Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House

Goal: Federally recognize hundreds of Native American tribes left behind.

There are hundreds of Native American tribes in the United States who for various, unacceptable reasons have been denied their tribal status by the government. In many cases, these tribes have clear treaties that acknowledge their existence, but the government refuses to grant them the protection and resources they are owed.

The United States owes a debt to the indigenous people of this country that can never be fully repaid. The first step needs to be acknowledging the tribal status of all of these Native tribes that are currently struggling to be recognized by our government. Sign our petition and demand that Speaker Pelosi makes doing right by Native Americans a priority.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Speaker Pelosi,

There are hundreds of Native American tribes in this country who have been denied their tribal status by the government. This is unacceptable.

As if stealing the land from Natives wasn’t horrible enough, to now deny some tribes the benefits and autonomy that others are granted, in many cases in spite of treaties, is not acceptable. There is no way to fully repay the Natives of this country for what was stolen from them, but at the very least we can start by acknowledging their tribal statuses and granting them the resources they need to survive.

There is no excuse to put this off.

Sincerely,

[ Your Name Here ]

    Yes, we should be SO ASHAMED of our HORRIBLE and HEART-BREAKING treatment of Native Americans, now and in the past! But I doubt evil & corrupt Pelosi cares about anyone, other than herself, & keeping Democrat power in Congress – oh, and her very expensive freezer and designer ice creams! I’m afraid this petition will fall on deaf ears if Pelosi is the intended savior – she’ll tear it up, just as she tore up the President’s State of the Union address! 👿
