A forgotten people

Dear Editor:

On the Daily Show with Jon Stewart he interviewed Mr. David Barton who insisted this nation was founded by Christian ideas. I beg to differ with him – the indigenous people, the Native American culture, traditions and spirituality (religion) that honored all life I believe influenced our Founding Fathers.

Have you ever heard of the Iroquois Constitution that our original Constitution was drawn from? It is an insult to ignore the people who were here before Europeans arrived like they didn’t exist, or is it you do not respect their beauty way of life here on Earth?
