WHEREAS, Native Americans have profoundly shaped our country's character and our cultural heritage, and enriched every aspect of our country, and

WHEREAS, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians are leaders in every aspect of our society – as teachers, professionals, emergency responders, business owners, elected officials, and neighbors, and
