How nice to bestow an honorary "day" upon a people. It's the least that could be offered, I suppose, to the original Americans. You remember them? It was they who were systematically removed from their country to make room for the Anglo-Saxon locust invasion. It was they who, when refusing to leave their Country, were slaughtered in their villages. And those who chose to "relocate" to the internment camps of their new "reservations" were gifted blankets infected with smallpox and suffered unbelievable hardship and inhumane treatment.
All in the name of a god-sanctioned "Manifest Destiny", perhaps the best sales slogan ever invented.
Indigenous Peoples Day. National Sorrow And Shame Day, more like....
Please be kind to one another. We're all we've got.
Here's a tune from my most recent studio recording Road Of Man - "Rain Don't Follow The Plow"
