Marie Mercado started this petition to Federal Education Department

I’d like to propose that all states in America be required to teach the history of their Indigenous people.  America is among one of the only countries in the world that does not teach the history of its original people. Since so much of what Americans have been taught is not the truth, (regarding Native Americans and their history), it is imperative that the government correct this problem.  I am asking that Native American history be taught as a course within itself, in every high school in America, and I would even hope that it would be taught sooner, in elementary school.

What is happening right now and what has happened in the past to the Native peoples of this nation, is so extensive that it could not be covered by one page in a history book, or not at all.  It is imperative that people see the real truth, and at a younger age.  So much of their history has been omitted, if not all of it. It’s time America join the rest of the world to accept the truth, and teach it.  It is even beyond time for an apology, but acknowledging their existence both now, and of the past is a start.  Let’s teach the adults of the future how to mend wrongs and to rise up to ensure that things don’t repeat themselves.

I hope that you will sign my petition. Thank you and be blessed in your life’s journey.
