I would like to see some recognition given to Native Americans in full tribal ceremonial dress.

It's interesting to me how we always look at the racial equality issue in terms of European Caucasians and Black Africans. Like Matchmaker said, what about the native people of this land that were exterminated? Sure, slavery was an abomninaton but genocide? Blacks have seen incredible success in America, sure it has been a tough road and there is still work to do, but where do the native Americans stand? America getting a biracial president was a big deal in many ways of course, but America getting a native American president, now that would be something.

Well according to the book of Mormon America will get a lot more than just a "native" president sometime in the future as we have not repented... " like a lion among unrepentant sheep"
