PostSubject: Independence Day   Sun Jul 02, 2017 2:29 am

Independence Day celebrated on the 4th of July.  It is not just a day to feast, but to remember the significance of this important day in history.  Independence Day,  commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and were no longer part of the British Empire. The Congress actually voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2.
 
While we celebrate this day, it is also important to remember the 562 Native American Tribes (recognized Nations) in the US.  http://www.ncai.org/about-tribes/indians_101.pdf.

As we celebrate our independence, it should be noted that the Native Americans lost their independence.  Although provisions have been made to recognize their sovereignty, it has its limitations.  I stand with the Native Americans who struggle to retain their lands and protect their environment.
