I appreciate it when entertainment venues recognize the Native American tribe/s that lived on the land. What bothers me is whether it’s a mass shooting or tribal recognition — it’s just words. Words do not correct atrocities and injustices.

I believe every venue should donate at least 10% of their revenues to the tribe along with the words of recognition. It would be a small but concrete acknowledgment of our historic wrongdoing.
