U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

On this Thanksgiving we must take time to remember that we owe the Native American people a debt of gratitude that we can never fully repay. Native Americans have been lied to, treaties they signed have been abrogated and their views have been ignored on issues that impact their communities. Throughout our history as a nation we have cheated the Native American community. That has got to change. We must establish a new relationship between the federal government and Native Americans so that they are finally treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.
