As this year's Indigenous Peoples Day (Formally Columbus Day) passed by, I realized that in my 10 and half years of education the only topics of Native American history that I learned about were the Lost Colony of Roanoke (because I'm from North Carolina) and a very brief lesson on the Trail of Tears. And even the lesson on the lost colony was very eurocentric and painted the natives as "savage" for supposedly killing the colonizers. I know, as a Junior in high school, its probably too late for me to learn about Native American history but if this succeeds, Future generations can learn about the tribe's whose land their schools sit on and how the last Hawaiian queen was imprisoned in her own palace and forced to annex Hawai'i to the US.

Please sign this petition so the future of our country can learn about the past of their country.
