Regret and hope

 

Thanks very much for M. John Fayhee's story, "Whose Apache Homelands?" (HCN, 10/14/13). What a sad history – doubly so because it's forgotten and unknown by so many of us, just like nearly all Native American history in the United States. It's good to know that there are possibilities for moving forward, that some still know the language, and that there are efforts at reconnecting with traditions – however controversial.
