Native American Museum

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. KENNEDY. Mr. President, I congratulate the leader for his statement about the opening of the Native American Museum today, and also for his recitation of the historic and incredible times in terms of the history of the United States and the Dakota tribes. It was enormously interesting.

As we all know, this issue in terms of Native American land and rights is something that is incredibly close to the heart of my friend, the Senator from South Dakota. I thank him for this statement this morning, particularly on this day of celebration for so many Native Americans. It was an extraordinary statement and comment about our history. All of us would be better citizens if we took to heart the history of our country and its history in regard to Native Americans. I thank him for his comments.

Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent to be reminded when I have only 1 minute left out of the time left to me.

The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. Without objection, it is so ordered.
