On #PurpleHeartDay , I’m remembering all the brave Americans wounded or killed while defending our country, like Pfc. Lori Piestewa. She was the first Native American woman in our country’s history to die serving overseas in the military. Their sacrifice is not forgotten.

The man described the woman as Native American, with long black hair down the middle of her back. During the altercation, he said “she told him she was 5′3” and 125 pounds.”
The Native American who apparently was being mocked by teens wearing MAGA hats in a viral video says he has "fear for those youth, fear for their future, fear for their souls, their spirit, what they're going to do to this country."
So now we have learned from the media that having a Native American great-great-great-great-great-grandparent makes you Native American, but that having two X chromosomes does not make you a woman.
We owe Native Americans so much. It's time for a new approach to the Native American people, not to run a pipeline through their land.
I appreciate listening to the Native American people and millions of others who believe this pipeline should not be built.
