Why not honor Indians every year?

I had always wondered why there was no day in the whole year to honor Native Americans; they were here long before the rest of us.

Federal legislation set aside the day after Thanksgiving -- for this year only -- to honor the contributions American Indians have made. President Bush signed the order in October.

I consider this to be an insult to the true natives of this country, and I feel it should be revised and the American Indians should be honored every year.

The day after Thanksgiving is very appropriate; after all, that is around the time when they gave up their land to those who landed on their shore. I wonder if anyone would disagree? I doubt it.
