Opposition HR6859

We, the undersigned, call upon you to stand firm in preserving the integrity of the Federal Recognition process.

In light of the recent petition by a newly formed group, represented by HR6859, it is imperative to ensure that recognition is granted through the established and rigorous criteria set forth by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). We believe that HR6859 poses a significant threat to the

well-being and rights of Indigenous communities.

HR6859, if passed, would [briefly summarize the key provisions or impacts of the bill, focusing on how it would negatively affect Indigenous rights and sovereignty. This bill undermines the rights and autonomy of Indigenous peoples, perpetuating historical injustices and disregarding their inherent sovereignty.  

It is imperative to ensure that recognition is granted through the established and rigorous criteria set forth by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). Their motivations appear to be detached from ancestral traditions and values, posing a threat to the sanctity of our heritage.

We urge you, as our elected representative, to stand with us in opposing HR6859 and any similar legislation that undermines Indigenous rights and sovereignty. Instead, we call on you to support policies and initiatives that uphold the principles of justice, equality, and respect for Indigenous peoples.

Specifically, we ask that you:

  1. Oppose HR6859 and any similar bills that threaten Indigenous rights and sovereignty.

  2. Advocate for legislation that respects and upholds the rights and autonomy of Indigenous communities with reverence in the community.

  3. Engage with Indigenous leaders and communities to better understand their needs and concerns, and work collaboratively to address them.

Taking a stand against HR6859 will demonstrate your commitment to justice, equality, and the rights of all individuals, including Indigenous peoples. We urge you to represent the voices and interests of your constituents by opposing this harmful legislation.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter. We look forward to your support in protecting Indigenous rights and sovereignty.
