Stealing Oak Flat without Apology

Here is a great piece by Mark Charles about the loss of sacred Apache lands:

The Stealing of Oak Flat & the Trauma of the Doctrine of Discovery

It notes that both the theft of Oak Flat and a general apology for taking Indigenous lands have been buried is Defense Appropriation Bills in the past.  Charles also discusses the Doctrine of Discovery and its relation to the US Supreme Court in Johnson v M’Intosh.
