Native Americans visit Israel

“The Native Americans in the Israeli president’s sukkah were in full regalia — eagle feathers, turquoise and red beads, leather moccasins. Beating on drums, they chanted honor songs blessing the people of the Jewish state. By coming to Israel this week after a brief trip to Poland that included a visit to Auschwitz, a group from the First Nations Peoples, as they call themselves, sought to connect with the Jewish people, whom they see as sharing a similar history to their own.”

I thought that the full story was pretty interesting.

    I had not heard about this. What a beautiful story.

    How deeply touching — this gesture of understanding borne from a shared sense of loss and struggle.
