GACACA is the SINCERE SEEKING of FORGIVENESS for HARM DONE to another and the GENEROUS GRANTING of FORGIVENESS for HARM RECEIVED....

Aho....

      By 'Native American' we mean the Peoples of the First Nations of the Western Hemisphere.... NOT to be confused with US citizens who are therefore 'native Americans'.... By 'Remembrance' we mean remembering how it was before Euro-Colonization.... and restoring the harmony....

      I am part Chumash Indian and our ancestors need this recognition. A lot of tribes, including ours, are not given the recognition they deserve.

      It should be important to EVERYONE! Seriously? Only 2,000 supporters? These are an amazing, proud, earth-friendly, spiritual people who deserve the utmost respect of every single American! What has been done to them is an abomination no different than what Hitler did to the Jews! Wake up, people!

      Not one treaty made to the First Nations has ever been completely honored by the United States of America. Help to make this right.

      It seems the least we must do. Some wounds are not healed by time, but may be by respect.

      I really believe this is long overdue. The Natives were truly the first people in the US and progress would not have been made without them as guides and teachers. They were cheated out of land and the respect they deserved. Now is the time to pay it forward and give the special rememberance and a chance to forgive what was done to them in the past.
