Native American Apology

Native American Apology is a proposed resolution which recognizes and honors the importance of Native Americans to this land and to our nation – in the past and today – and offers an official United States government apology to the Native peoples for the poor and painful past choices the government sometimes made to disregard its solemn word in regard to treaties with the Native American Indians. It is a resolution of apology and a resolution of reconciliation. It is a step toward healing the wounds that have divided the United States for so long – a potential foundation for a new era of positive relations between Tribal governments and the federal government.
