The connection between my project I Am My White Ancestors and current events continues to be startling. This time it is a rerun of the genocide and land theft that was business as usual during the early years of the US. There is no surprise that we are still doing it, since we never took real responsibility for past crimes and refused to examine the source of it. I hope with my project that I can lead the way to helping European Americans embrace their conflicted past, understand it, and talk honestly.
Please view this Bill Moyers interview with Robert A Williams Jr, a law professor and author of Savage Anxieties. In it, Williams explains how the US government in cahoots with corporations are still stealing land from the Native Americans.
