American Indian Religious Freedom
Aug. 11, 1978 [S.J. Res. 102]

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That henceforth it shall be the policy of the United States to protect and preserve for American Indians their inherent fight of freedom to believe, express and exercise the traditional religions of the American Indian, Eskimo, Aleut, and Native Hawaiians, including but not limited to access to sites, use and possession of sacred objects, and the freedom to worship through ceremonials and traditional rites.

American Indian Religious Freedom. 42 USC 1996.

That's right, Indian people were prevented by law from practicing their beliefs
until 1978! Sacred Items were illegal to own previous to this date. 1978!
Your history books never mentioned that people were being arrested for praying?
Guess who was writing and approving those history books.
The very same people that would like to see all Indians ''disappear''.
The U.S. govenment has done everything they could think of to make it happen,
from outright slaughter, and paying bounties for dead Indians, to starvation,
involuntary sterilization, and other genocidal practices.
