Kim, just noticed this. Indigenous people and the Iroquois Confederacy are particular low points in our history for treatment of Native Americans. Well done.

You are blessed with ancestry of a proud people, Kim. I admire Native American art and culture, but the way they were treated when Europeans colonized the states, is shameful. Compelling thoughts, Kim. Hugs, Carolyn
