H. Res. 168

In the House of Representatives, U.S.,

In the House of Representatives, U.S.,

June 20, 2001.  


    Whereas Native Americans have given much to this country;

    Whereas an emphasis on freedom, justice, patriotism, and representative government have always been elements of Native American culture;

    Whereas Native Americans have shown their willingness to fight and die for this Nation in foreign lands;

    Whereas Native Americans honor the American flag at every powwow and at many gatherings and remember all veterans through song, music, and dance;

    Whereas Native Americans honor, through song, the men and women of this country who have fought for freedom;

    Whereas Native Americans love the land that has nurtured their parents, grandparents, and unnamed elders since the beginning of their recorded history; and; and

    Whereas Native Americans honor the Earth that has brought life to the people since time immemorial: Now, therefore, be it

That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the Nation’s schools should honor Native Americans for their contributions to American history, culture, and education.
