Tim Phelps is setting out on his bike to ask the current President to issue an official public apology to all Indigenous People for the mistreatment they have faced.

Petition For Apology

Petition for Apology

Goal: 1000

Our country, the United States of  America, was originally inhabited by Indigenous Peoples. With the arrival of European people, that dynamic shifted, and shifted dramatically during the ensuing years. During that time the Native tribes in this country were murdered, overrun, had their land taken away, were forced onto reservations, had their children forcibly removed to boarding schools, and were themselves forced to assimilate into a white Euro-centric cultural dynamic. They had their customs and beliefs stripped from them for no reason other than being different from the new dominant culture.

With this petition, we ask the President of the United States of America to offer an official public apology on behalf of the Government of the United States of America to ALL the tribes in this country and it’s auspices for the mistreatment and cruelty they have incurred.

This small gesture will start a long-overdue process of healing and also give recognition to the beautiful cultures they have always brought to this land.

* Your address on the Petition is only so your Congressional Representative gets notified about the Petition. This increases its exposure and hopefully a Presidential Apology. That info is then deleted in house.
