Native Americans: July 4th and Saving America’s Soul
July 1, 2013
Hosted by Sharon E. Davis
Can’t deport Native Americans. These sovereign Nations have been here from the beginning, and will be forever. Is it true that without the heart, soul, and help of Native Americans, we would not be celebrating the 4th of July? What do Native Americans think of the 4th of July anyway? What have Native people known for thousands of years that seems so ‘new’ to us today? Native American activists have long pointed the way to a better ‘America’ from a world view focused on the number 7. What does this mean? Why must we care? Can we understand soon enough to save our collective future? The few Native Americans are leading the many in ways you have not heard about on a local, national, and international level. In 2010, the United Nations chose 3 people from the United States to be peace builders around the world. Our guest, Dr. Kay McGowan, Native American activist, educator, and author was one. Join us and learn 1st hand the whole truth from this humble and gifted luminary what few can tell us.
