No group, ethnicity, or race can claim a greater devotion to this land called America than those who were its first inhabitants.
PHOENIX, AZ (PRWEB) July 04, 2015
Benefiting Arizona recently published an article in honor of Independence Day that highlights the patriotism, bravery, and love for this land that is so often exhibited by Native Americans. The article entitled, "Patriotism is a Native Virtue," discusses the relationship that Native Americans have with this land that many call home.
As the article states, "Patriotism is often defined as love for or devotion to one’s homeland. It gives us a sense of belonging and pride in ones roots, culture, and “home team”. But patriotism is a virtue protected and strengthened in different ways. Whether it be the soldiers who serve and who give their lives defending our way of life or the protestors who demand that leaders and laws live up to, or even improve upon, the nation’s ideals, each demonstrates a passion for the homeland in spite of its struggles missteps along the path of history.
"Is it no wonder then that patriotism is a virtue of Native Americans? No group, ethnicity, or race can claim a greater devotion to this land called America than those who were its first inhabitants. From long before the first boats landed on the eastern shores, Native Americans have embodied bravery, heroism, and love for the land for thousands of years. These deep roots that reach back millennia offer a great example of what patriotism means today."
