New Museum Shares American Indian Story

Bucks County Courier Times (Lower Bucks County, PA), , September 22, 2004


For the more than 10,000 American Indians from throughout the Western Hemisphere who marched on Washington and the new National Museum of the American Indian, Tuesday meant so many things.

A chance to speak and be heard.

The first real national recognition of a great and terrible extinction.

A petition to save thousands of native cultures, languages and traditions, which all seemed destined to fade.

Glen Canday, a retired bus driver and Chickahominy elder from Virginia said,

"This is not a payback. There can never be a payback. This is not about bitterness, though people often ask us that. This is a chance for us to share our story and to really have a place to finally be recognized for all we've given."
