As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think ad reflect, particularly with regards to my previous thoughts about indigenous rights, and Americas historical relationship with Spanish America. Whilst we would think that America, a nation that is considered a world leader and progressive nation, would also have progressive ideas, when we think of progress for the diverse populations that exist in America. We can think of modern progress that was built for African Americans with the Leadership of President Obama, however; this does not mean to say that racism or systemic barriers, or inequity has been totally wiped out for this population segment. There is always more that can be done, but having said that as well, I find it interesting how narratives of Indigenous America and Spanish America have been lost, fragmented, and somewhat forgotten.
