Thanks to Native American Minnesota, I was introduced to some public discussions and documents concerning efforts to obtain a national apology to American Indians in the United States, and Geff Wigley at NAM considers how Minnesota might learn from and adapt Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission — see “Does Minnesota needs its own Truth and Reconciliation Commission?“. Among the documents listed at NAM one can find U.S. Senator Sam Brownback’s apology resolution. Wigley expects that both Obama and McCain will show leadership on native reconciliation issues if elected. NAM also points out that the Colorado legislature passed a resolution comparing the deaths of millions of American Indians to the Holocaust. Minnesota has also seen its own public arguments in favour of reconciliation and an apology.
