"UNITED NATIVE AMERICA"
Resolution in support of designation of a National Holiday for
Native Americans

United Native America
National Holiday Resolution

Whereas the Native Americans recognize the Federal and State governments, therefore it is befitting for the Federal Government to recognize Native Americans with the establishment of a Native American Federal National Holiday. Be it further known that Columbus Day is the most uncelebrated holiday in America, and not recognized by any Native American Government as cause for celebration of the re-discovery of them and their homeland. True history cannot be taught to our young children in our nation's schools about Columbus;

Whereas Indian nations citizens are subject to the laws and taxation of the United States Government;

Whereas there are ten national holidays now recognized by the Federal Government, not one paying tribute to the Native Americans;

Whereas the Native American people need a Federal holiday to help recognize the Native Americans for their participation and contributions to the United States Armed Services, Science, Theater, Medicine, Government, Mathematics, Economy, Food, etc.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the United States Government support and promote a recommendation to designate one day each year as a Federal and State National Holiday recognizing Native American Indians before the arrival of Columbus;

BE IT RESOLVED that the United States Federal Government support and promote a recommendation to pay tribute to the Native America Indians by establishing a Federal day that will be included along with the ten national holidays that the United States Federal Government supports;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the United States Government establish such a holiday with the intent to show solidarity and identification with Native American governments in recognition of their historic involvement in the formation of the Federal and State governments we have today, including service in the Armed Services, cultural contributions and social significance as citizens of this great land.

Ladies and Gentlemen, We have an issue that is very important to the Native American people and our Government. I think that there should be a Federally recognized National Holiday for the Native American People. Our people have never been given the recognition for our contributions to the United States and World.
