Letter: Feds must help Native Americans

Published 5:48 pm Saturday, January 5, 2019

It’s high time that the United States government start looking out for Native Americans. Native Americans were the victims of European colonialism and the Manifest Destiny.

Native Americans were also victims of European disease because they were not previously exposed to the same sicknesses.

Now is the time for our federal legislators to write a bill that doles out aid to schools, hospitals and infrastructure along Native American reservations nationwide.

Life on a reservation is pathetic, and most Native Americans’ lives are poor quality and sad.

Showing concern for Native Americans would be a big step toward caring for minorities.
