The Native American Vote

RECLAIMING Their VOICE: The Native American Vote in New Mexico & Beyond

Great documentary about the struggles Native Americans face participating in American elections.

It just amazes me how people in power are always looking for some way to cheat the system by silencing the Native Americans and disrespecting their voice. They love to keep destroying the land by adding roads and buildings with no regards, just in the name of progress and profits. 😑

After all the horribly grotesque history Native Americans had to endure in this country, the 21st century still treating them/us like third class citizens. πŸ™„

β€œWe owe the Native American people so, so much.”

β€œThey have shared their culture. They have shared their respect for the environment with us.”

β€œAll too often, Native Americans have not been heard on issues that impact their communities. They have been told what to do. They have not been involved in the process.”

― Bernie Sanders

We need to find a way to stop supporting these rich corporations and their two-party system that have a big hold on the voting process. πŸ‘Ώ

  1. Over here in Canada things are getting better for First Nations (our name for Native Americans), but it is far from the ideal. Is it going to be better? No one knows, time will tell.
