Letter to President Obama

Dear President Obama,

Your work regarding diversity in the United States,
as well as globally, is well-recognized. Now, it is
time to address America’s native people by doing
what you can do to get Congress to legislate a
bill to require American native studies on all
school curriculums. This way, America’s
infrastructure will take on strength by providing
a vehicle for all Americans to learn about
Native Americans.

We’ve gassed up the Prius here in Colorado.
We’ve made a couple of short films about
the Sand Creek Massacre, which gives viewers
an in-depth view about how this tragedy effects
America’s indigenous people today, 145 years
after the massacre. It continues to effect their
abilities to live productive lives in America.
Poverty, disease, drug and alcohol abuse,
etc., prey on America’s native people.

Ignorance caused the Sand Creek Massacre.
Racial prejudice permeates America of its
native people. This can be changed. But,
we need your help. Put us together with
Congress so that we can get a bill passed
that will require American Native studies
on all school curriculums. When this is
achieved, it is then, and only then that
the ignorance will begin to fade away in
young minds, and be replaced with an
awareness of America’s indigenous people
that does not now exist.

Please contact me with your interest.

Thank you for your consideration.

Best Regards,

Donald L. Vasicek
