Like most new racial history exercises, land acknowledgments are less about a true reflection of the past than grievance politics and superficial gestures.

Revisionist histories are nearly always written (or posted to the internet) with an agenda in mind — it’s no different for the Pilgrims and Thanksgiving.
Law enforcement officers are vital to supporting President Trump’s efforts to prevent drugs from crossing our borders and into our Native communities.
Something as important as identity should be determined by the fans who invest their money and emotions into cultural touchstones like sports teams.

‘Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. . . Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.’
Acting as if the results of the senator’s DNA test are a vindication of her initial claims is an assault on reason.

Most Americans were taught a cartoonish version of the first Thanksgiving, but the history of the Pilgrims and Indians was far more complex—and harrowing.
When people compare different actors on the historical stage and express themselves from a political viewpoint, we can expect to end in the realm of the absurd or the downright ridiculous.
