"Sanitizing history was at the heart of residential boarding schools," said Steve Melendez, Paiute, President of the American Indian Genocide Museum. "The brainwashing that was encompassed in the motto, 'kill the Indian, save the man,' ripped the children from the arms of their mothers, killed the pride self-esteem, and the very spirit of an entire generation of our people."

HOUSTON -- Steven Melendez, Northern Paiute from Nevada, and Cheryl Melendez, Cree from Manitoba, representing The American Indian Genocide Museum, will be honored on June 15, 2024 for an exhibit documenting historic events and policies to memorialize the victims of ethnic cleansing at the Center for Healing Racism at the Juneteenth Ally Award Luncheon in Houston, Texas.

Having been an active board member of the museum for 20 years now, I am thrilled that the Melendez's are being honored. They have worked tirelessly to bring the indigenous peoples' stories to everyone so that they can learn about them and the horrors they have gone through to live decent, normal lives.

Racism is like cancer. Once someone is infected with it, it turns to hate and violence, Racism is a direct threat to each one of us in our daily lives. We should continually be aware of it and how to defeat it so that we can live in peace. The American Indian Genocide Museum continues its fight against racism and you can be a part of it. You can donate to the museum at https://aigenom.org/.

Thanks so much for your continuing interest and support. We are deeply appreciative of it.

"We serve as a memorial to the victims of ethnic cleansing."
