Today I would like to recognize the strength, heart, and spirit of the people of the Six Nations. The Iroquois Confederacy. The Haudenosaunee People.
Today, I would like to pay homage to a struggle that I cannot imagine and an endurance that I have no earthly concept of.
Today, as an American and citizen of the United States, I would like to acknowledge a past that must never be forgotten, a present that I am responsible for shaping and a future that will honor one of the greatest living peoples to ever breathe life into this world.
And today, I would like to say, I'm sorry.
