[Michigan, November 24, 2023]:

The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) joins the nation in recognizing and observing Native American Heritage Day that falls annually the day after Thanksgiving Day on November 24.

November is observed as the Native American Heritage month. President George H. W. Bush signed the official recognition into law in 1990. 184 Native American tribes recognize the occasion.

Native American Heritage Day is an important occasion to honor and celebrate the precious and rich native American culture and heritage of the Indigenous people of the land. Native American history is American history.

The war on Gaza brings up a comparison between Palestinians and native Americans. The plight of Palestinians is often compared to the plight of native Americans. Native Americans suffered many wrongs throughout American history. But today, despite remaining challenges, are considered a precious component of modern America. The wrongs they faced are acknowledged and they are full American citizens. It is hoped that one day Israel would acknowledge its crimes against the Indigenous Palestinians population, acknowledge their full humanity and give them full rights.

“History is a mixed bag, there is the good, the bad and the ugly,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. “America has made many mistakes, wronged so many in its history,” added Hamad. “The story of native Americans and America is a story of hope, forgiveness and belief in a better future for everyone,” noted Hamad. “The first step is acknowledging the other’s experience and pain, and this is a lesson for the whole world,” concluded Hamad.
