A Native American high school student refused to stand and salute the USA flag. It triggered out rage in her teacher and a action of questions directed at her and another student who also stood their ground as the teacher ordered both to stand and salute.
"Stand up! Salute!, by crossing your heart. "
The two sat in silence.
The teacher eyed her question at the Native American girl with the long hair, " You know it's a sign of respect and honor for America...and the men and women who fought and died for you and all of us"
The child replied in puzzlement, " Not for me and and not for my people...the Indians. Americans, America killed most of us and took our land...the army was for America not for the Indians."
