I am opposed to White people, politicians, news reporters, academics, sociologists, teachers and others referring to and defining Native Americans as Hispanic, Latino, undocumented, Mestizos, immigrants, illegal or any other label that hides or obscures the identity of Native people of America. You say Hispanic and Latino are not racial classifications but then you use them as such..

You are actively degrading us below our natural position in our homeland when you falsely label us with the above terms. You are an active participant in the 527 year old genocide of Native people which has taken many forms including mass murder, terrorism, cultural genocide, paper genocide and now what you are doing, Identity genocide, all with the intent of reducing the Native population in order for White people to continue controlling Native resources and Native homelands.

Natives are the majority in America and your false labels, such as the above create, the illusion and functional reality that Natives are the smallest population in America of all races.

You are intelligent enough to know that speaking the foreign Spanish language does not make us any less Native than Natives speaking the foreign English or French or other alien European languages in the Western Hemisphere.

Your continued use of the false labels of Hispanic, Latino, undocumented, Mestizos, immigrants, illegal when referring to Natives on Native land is racist and genocidal and must stop immediately!
