Ten days later, Petito’s mother filed a missing person report.

Opinion. The cornerstone of our democracy is the right to vote. However, for most of our country’s history, Native Americans were denied that right. The Indian Citizenship Act of 1924 finally granted citizenship to all Native Americans born in the U.S., but even after that law, states could restrict Native voting rights. It was not until 1962 that Utah became the final state to allow Natives the right to vote. For much of the 20th century, until federal Indian law reforms of the 1970s, Cherokees were not allowed to elect leaders of our own tribe.

OPINION. After the first jet plane hit the World Trade Center’s north tower at 8:45 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, television commentators thought the horrible incident was an aeronautical accident. Then 18 minutes later, another plane struck the south tower on live television. Suddenly, the realization came that America was under attack by terrorists.

OPINION. The global war on terror isn't ending, nor was it as long as the American Indian Wars. I take issue with the characterization that the war in Afghanistan is America's longest war. America's real longest war was the conflict against Indigenous Americans, called the American Indian Wars, which most historians characterize as beginning in 1609 and ending in 1924 or 313 years, mainly over land control.

OPINION. Historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. writes in Robert Kennedy and His Times, “On the day Robert Kennedy himself died, a New York Seneca, whose reservation he had visited in 1967, wrote to his widow: ‘We loved him, too. Mrs. Kennedy, Loving a public official for an Indian is almost unheard of, as history bears out. We trusted him. Unheard of, too, for an Indian. We had faith in him.’”
