Friends in the Eastern US,

I am looking for support for the idea to add a strong statement advocating for justice for Native Peoples, who continue to be oppressed in some ways.

Please contact me to discuss this.  Thanks, David  jdavidswift@aol.com  716-532-6022

I agree. Yes we need to help our true Americans they were here first and we all took from them but never gave them back something fair. It is so sad. At least we can give them the gift of fairness by treating them fair and equal. I blame our do nothing office holders. What do they actually do at work?

Keep your great spirit alive.

Keep humanity alive.

Thanks for your positive, affirming response, Craig. 

I am looking into a way to have input to the Justicer Party platform so as to include our thinking on this important topic.

Also, it is high time for the President to Free Leonard Peltier!   http://www.leonardpeltier.net

Absolutely!

It's ironic that the year that the Statue of Liberty was dedicated(1886),that massacres of Native Americans were still going on under the guise of "Indian Wars." What is also appalling as well is that since those times,the nation has arguably accumulated the largest national debt of any nation in history(over $16,000,000,000 dollars),given our manufacturing base away through a series of
"free trade" agreements,as well as producing a culture of high divorce and illegitimate birth rates.If someone is trying to prove to me that this is "civilization",you aren't doing a very good job of convincing me...

Agree! Statement of solidarity and a position on solving Native American problems--- especially racism and poverty--- from the Justice Party is required.

How about this?

In our commitment to promote and secure justice for every American, the Justice Party supports progressive solutions to those issues confronting our Native American constituents. At the root of widespread poverty, overcrowding, mortality, and a history of broken promises lies a system which has, until now, ignored the needs of its own--confining an entire people to the social and political background.

The Justice Party proposes a committed partnership between the Native American community and the DOE Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE) for the revision of federal standards in the early teaching of US History. The first step towards fair treatment of our own begins with knowledge of who we are. The Justice Party advocates education of those citizens unaware of Native American problems as the initial step towards ending inequality based on ignorance.


The Justice Party proposes the reallocating of a portion of OESE Office of Indian Education funds towards the establishment of a Micro-Loan program specifically towards the funding of Tribe-owned business for fostering economic growth from sources external to Tribal territories. To overcome poverty, Native Americans must be given the same access to our nation's general wealth through means that do not foster the erosion of a people's core identity.


The Justice Party encourages responsible administration of humanitarian aid programs aimed towards the benefit of those in need. We propose the channeling of a portion of medical, nutritional, and technological resources currently provided to countries such as Zambia and Columbia towards more immediately accesible programs among Native Americans. Before we as a nation can claim to confidently serve the underserved abroad, we must first show our ability to serve the underserved in our own lands.
 
(I think the above are doable and--through a system of reallocation rather than creation--place less of a burden on our country's already shaky financial situation. http://www.guardian.co.uk/global/2010/jan/11/native-americans-reservations-poverty-obama)
