In the late 1990s, I testified before a joint legislative committee of the Michigan Legislature about the benefits of tribal gaming casinos on tribal citizens. Before I began, I introduced myself and noted I was a citizen of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation.

Native Americans in California and across the country lost two giants on the same day at the end of December—Joseph Myers and Chairman Marshall McKay. Both were my longtime friends. Their influence and fierce protection of our culture and traditions were invaluable. Mr. Myers was a leader in fostering legal justice and a pioneer in tribal law and successfully helped  reverse the termination of 17 California Indian Rancherias. He passed away from long-term cardiac issues. Chairman McKay, who passed from the novel coronavirus, co-founded the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation on the board of the National Museum of the American Indian and served as the first Indigenous Chair of the Autry Museum of the American West and led his tribe to economic sustainability. Both accomplished much more than I can list here.

The attack last week on the U.S. Capitol was an attack on every peaceful citizen who believes in a representational democracy in which all races, genders, ethnicities, and creeds have a place at the table. I and others in my circle of relationships name the attack for what it is—an insurrection, fueled by white supremacy and fringe conspiracy theories.

Opinion. On September 11, 2001, 40 brave Americans—true patriots—came to the realization the jet plane they were on had been hijacked by four foreign terrorists. The flight originated in Newark, N.J. and was bound for San Francisco. The hijackers diverted the jet towards the dome of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. Because of their bravery, the would-be flying weapon—United Airlines Flight 93—was diverted to an empty field in rural Pennsylvania. Each year on Sept. 11, Americans remember these patriots who died that day. Their bravery saved the U.S. Capitol, one of America’s most treasured landmarks, from destruction by the evil of foreign terrorists.
