If it’s Native American Heritage Month why has the History Channel shown nothing to celebrate it? All that’s shown is pawn shops junk pickers and aliens.
You left out Elizabeth Warren.
When is it gonna be "Caucasian" heritage month? I don't know enough about my Irish/Scottish forefathers. Wait, is that politically incorrect? Did I say that out loud, I'm sorry........ I'm not really sorry......or racist.
I think the code talkers were an amazing force in the war. I can never get enough iof that part of history.
Native (used as an adjective) means born in a particular place. Everyone born in this country is a native American.
Windtalkers is the preferred term if what I was told is correct. The Diné see the Spanish word Navajo as rooted in a insult by then opposing Mexican people. So, especially if it's Native American Heritage Month. let's use their preferred name, Diné or Dineh, not Navajo.
There are a lot of people missing from this list. And why did not you name the code talkers instead of just saying the code talkers?
had a high school teacher, Prof Ronald Benes, UNM-A,, (yes high school, he got bored at college) that taught me a lot of about the North and South American Native Americans,, had him for 3 years and the only class I never cut or missed
Other than the native American code talkers I didn't learn about until I was almost 30, I never knew any of this. 😑. If they keep rewriting history and not teaching it at all in school this too will be lost.
since they (Olympic committee) decided to allow professional players into the Olympics... we should start a campaign to restore Thorpe's medal to his family he only got a pair of shoes... no justice...
Correction of a "name" which does show his true colors. Coming from Colorado, and voting for this democrat to present my views, he quickly betrayed us, and destroyed the views to present his own agenda by voting Republican in an age when we really needed him. So this man is known now by his new moniker: Ben TURNCOAT Campbell...... boo! Hiss! Spit spit! If he had honestly been a Republican from the beginning, it would be one thing, but to run on issues he said he would present, then bury those issues by destroying them is quite another. boo! hiss! Spit spit!
When I was a kid I ran and played with native Americans and they and I didn't look at each other as any better or worse than each other. But since the 70s they have hired lawyers and advocates to assert their ethnicity to become a "superior" culture to the one we lived together in then. Tribes have commercials showing us un-natives the wonderful things they have done to make this country come about. If their culture was so superior, why didn't their culture keep Europeans from taking this land from sea to sea? Where we're the great warriors? Where the great civilizations? The great inventions? The great progress? Smoke shops and casinos are their strengths, their wealth, and now their landmarks and legacy! Since they have also championed the no smoking and no drinking campaigns. It's sad because I really appreciate the real people themselves and their real contributions more than their affects on our American culture! They are better off as part of the collective American culture!
These folks are all truely Americans who have given back to America in many ways. So glad to see they are getting some recognition.
And you left out .. US 🇺🇸🇺🇸OLYMPIC WINNER BILLY MILLS🇺🇸🇺🇸, Wes Studi, LDP, Graham Greene, Iron Eyes, Geronimo, Cochise, Sacajawea, Pocahontas .. and several others.. tsk tsk✍🏼 not to mention Diane Humetewa.
Wait, people of Native American decent have a month now? I though we were just a bunch of white guys with no history.
Why is there all this hate speech? Immediately, people go to try and defend "their own" when this was simply about a culture besides their own. Media got y'all fooled.smh
And Donald Trump calls Elizabeth Warren, "Pocahantas", because she has Native American blood. Why can he get away with that!! He's disgusting...
I recognized all of the Native Americans you showed,, problem being , you did not or have not shown any young people ,, are there none or did you just not show them?? great examples but what is the generation doing??
I'm proud to say I know of every person mentioned. But so many other Native Americans could have been mentioned.
We should honor them, or rather CONTINUE to honor them, as Americans. They were the first to these lands, these lands were then United under one banner and they continued to contribute to that effort, as is seen in War, Science, Entertainment, etc.
Greg McGowan, "Caucasian", heritage month is every day...When was the last time you took a look at an American History Book? As for your, Irish/Scottish roots..Try watching PBS.. They show programs throughout the year.. Even down to Scotch-Irish Early Immigration To America,1700-1800..
Wow, you should have added one of the best narrators that the PBS network could employ. ....Peter Coyote, thank you enjoy your Sunday
Long over due for the original/true Natives. This was their land. It still is!! Show them some respect
That astronaut is the whitest Native American I have ever seen.
Yeah, right! After 400 years of genocide and plain extermination - AKA HOLOCAUST - now in a burst of ultimate hypocrisy, let's celebrate!
