By Aurora Garcia
The USA is the country where I live. While the United States is not my motherland, it is the country where I have lived the longest and the country that gave me a new life, and a son.
Look behind you. See your sons and your daughters. They are your future. Look farther, and see your sons’ and your daughters’ children, and their childrens’children, even unto the Seventh Generation. That’s the way we were taught.
—Leon Shenandoah (1915-1996) Leader of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy
