We did a whistle-stop event in downtown Brookings, South Dakota today. The Brookings Register reporter John Kubal asked me about my proposal for making tangible amends to the Native Americans for past wrongs. I said, for one, I would propose establishing creative Land Trusts to give them some of the land back. I mean we stole it from them, plain and simple, I told Kubal. And if something has been stolen, you give it back — no matter how many generations have passed. And it is our childrens’ innocence that is being stolen in the sea of violence, drugs and sex that is now permeating our culture, I told ABC reporter Rob Wilson after the event today.
