    Senate Committee Apologizes to All Native Americans for Violence and Maltreatment by U.S. Citizens

    Source: CNSNews.com (8-10-09)
    The Senate Committee on Indian Affairs passed a resolution by voice vote last week apologizing "on behalf of the people of the United States" to all Indian tribes for the mistreatment and violence by American citizens.

    Senate Joint Resolution 14, sponsored by Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), states that its purpose is “to acknowledge a long history of official depredations and ill-conceived policies by the Federal Government regarding Indian Tribes and offer an apology to all Native Peoples on behalf of the United States.”

    In Section 1A, No. 4 of the resolution states that the apology is on behalf of U.S. citizens for harm they have done to “Native Peoples.” In the resolution, native peoples are defined as people who “inhabited the land of the present-day United States since time immemorial and for thousands of years before the arrival of people of European descent.”

    Interesting. I don't recall anyone ever asking me for an apology on my behalf. I'm guessing they're assuming that every present day white American is sorry for stuff they had no part in.
