Independence Day for Native America

The Fourth of July holiday inspires feelings of patriotism and freedom for many Americans. We tend to celebrate it with barbecues, picnics, and family gatherings over the long weekend. And thousands of people continue to leave their homelands to come to “the land of the free and the home of the brave” to live out the American dream.

Do we ever stop to think how Independence Day might be for Native Americans? Indigenous peoples lived here free and independent for thousands of years before the United States of America was founded in 1776. This audio clip by American Public Media called “A Native American Take on Independence” shares some insights from a Native perspective.
