My husband and I have been donors to AIRC, among others, for a good many years and while the sums were small I always got a letter of appreciation. We decided it would be easier to pledge a small amount monthly which would give them more money, added up for the year, than we could afford once or twice a year. Our Native Americans were here far longer than we and tended this land with loving care. They were badly treated along the way to the point that they do not have enough food for those unable to take care of themselves since they have little for industry nor are they encouraged by our government. Otherwise there would be no need to solicate funds as many times a year as they now do. There has to be resources for them to take care of themselves, not just trinkets, some of which are unbelievably beautiful, but a sustained source of income to combat those among them who not only abuse themselves but thier families as well. How can children learn in such an environment. If it were not for the AIRC too many of them would not even have an education or good food in thier bellies. There probably are some ineqjuities in a lot of organizations but you cannot blame those that do the best they can with what they have to help thier people and thier animals. I cannot second guess each and every organization nor do I intend to. I hope this will help some of you to see beyond what you hear and do as your faith in God wants of you, "Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You". God Bless our American Indian Nation and mostly, and foremost, God Bless America and ALL her people alike.
