The story of America’s mistreatment of American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians is a long and painful one, rooted in centuries of discrimination, neglect, greed, and violence. Tribal Nations robbed of more than a billion acres of land. Resources seized and sacred sites desecrated. Native languages and religions suppressed. Children literally stolen from communities in an effort to eradicate entire cultures. Native history is American history — and we must be honest about our government’s responsibility in perpetuating these injustices for centuries.

When the money comes, I will buy new bicycles for all the little boys and girls
I will take them all to the trampoline park and let them jump until they collapse from exhaustion
We will all pretend that this goes on forever without consequence or comeuppance
When the money comes, I will grow forgetful and excited
When the money comes, I will get out the vote and tend to my bald spots with stem cells and apple cider vinegar
When the money comes, I will praise the lord Jesus on high; I will make a parachute of bitcoin and base jump from the Statue of Liberty’s left breast
When the money comes, I will invest in peanut butter, jelly, bread, and clown makeup
When the money comes, I will take my family to Lobster Fest and for dessert we’ll have frozen custard with brownie bites and we will weep with joy at our ability to conquer the spirit world by means of machine learning
When the money comes, you’ll tell me how much you love me and how you can’t live without me and how we belong together for ever and for ever ever ever
And I will believe you, when the money comes, god I will believe you so hard
Our Firearms, Who send many to heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Names;
Our hands be wrung,
The N.R.A.’s will be done
in America as it is in Congress.
Give us this day our daily dead,
and send thoughts and prayers,
as we fill with holes those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into solutions,
but deliver us from stray bullets.
