Starting Anew

As noted in Indian Country Today, it’s time to bury the American hostility toward the Sioux Nation, and a good way to start is by establishing a new national monument in the Black Hills. Recognition of the sacred as the motivation for designating a monument may be new for the National Park Service, but it is age old for the tribes who sought solace and inspiration there. Allowing for that difference would be a sign that multiculturalism is more than just words on paper.
