Native Organization Schools Steve Bannon on Native History
September 13th, 2017 Blog
Trump’s former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon recently made an appearance on the popular CBS special 60 minutes. If you’re familiar with him and his views on issues like immigration many of his comments may have come as no surprise. One comment, though, took Indian Country by surprise.
When speaking on the issue of immigration the interviewer, Charlie Rose, brought up the fact that unless you’re Native American your ancestors were immigrants.
The statement seemed to unhinge an anger in Bannon.
The official transcript from CBS spells it out for us.
His statements unsettled many, including the National Congress of American Indians which sent out a public statement to TheWrap schooling Bannon, who people felt was qualified to help lead the country, on America’s history.
The statement ended with a bang.
What are your thoughts on Bannon’s knowledge of American history?
What Would Pocahontas Think of Donald Trump?

Sky News attempts to answer, what would Pocahontas think of Donald Trump by asking these two women: Debbie Porreco, a descendant of Pocahontas and Irene Bedard, the voice of Disney’s Pocahontas.
I’m really surprised to see the descendant is okay with Trump using the name Pocahontas as a slur when talking about Elizabeth Warren.
Disappointed in fact.
How do you feel after watching the video?
