The students are right action should be taken.
Extra history classes for everyone. including the one who prints/sells these stickers.
I think we're far more dangerous than endangered.

All the education in the world will not change the attitudes of an ignorant minority.

"The Five Nations have such absolute Notions of Liberty that they allow no kind of Superiority of one over another, and banish all Servitude from their Territories." ―Cadwallader Colden, 1727, 1st colonial representative to the Haudenosaunee Confederacy

"I am afraid that the white men are not speaking straight; that their children will not do what is right by our children; that they will not do what you have promised for them." ~Chief Kamiaken, Yakima

[to Governor Stevens, Washington State, who asked Chief Kamiaken to speak after a treaty was written protecting the future rights of the Yakima people.]

Diversity is to be celebrated! What a boring world this would be without it! Ironically enough, it's the "white race" that's done the most damage to this earth, that selfishly exploits it for profit without concern for others, and puts more plants and animals on the "endangered species" list --while Native Americans learned from their ancestors to treat the earth with love and respect.

Noted! Perhaps it has escapted these hateful students that the Native Americans were here first. They put the well being of the earth and our natural resources before any commercial enterprise. I think it is disgusting to treat someone who has contributed so much to our nation's history in such a shameful way. They have wonderful traditions handed down from generation to generation. I will stand with the Native Americans against these or any other hateful people who attempt to shame degrade them in any way.

The indigenous people were here first, and this is more disgusting than words can say. Save the white race? For what?

We are all created equal no matter what ones gender or race is. We are all made in the same image and no one is different than the other. Racism needs to be stopped and equal rights amendment needs to be upgraded and into full force worldwide. We are all brothers and sisters. Lets act like it.

That Montana group sounds like a bunch of idiots. Something needs to be done. Native Americans have been persecuted for way too long.

The White Race is "Earth's Most Endangered Species"?

Speaking as a member of the white race, let me ask the person who put this racist crap up: Do you actually believe that YOU'RE the best the 'white race' has to offer? Because if you are, then our extinction is assured.

Like the dinosaurs, your time has passed. Evolve already!

We would not be suffering the catastrophes we are now - if the Indigenous people had been treated as equals and if only the 'white' man had listened to them. Thanks Cal.

Racism, alive everywhere, states & canada. When my son was in university in southern b.c. He was in class & this girl, out of nowhere says to him & the whole class. I paid for your schooling, we're tired of paying for everything for you people. My son replied, how nice, I need a book for this class, could you run down & get it for me, seeing that your paying for my schooling. Everyone in the class laughed. The next day she tried to get her boyfriend after my son. He took one look at how big my son was & left. Same town, when my son went out with his non native friends to celebrate his birthday. They wouldnt serve him cause he was native, he just sat there for an hour waiting for service. We have dealt with hatred all our lives. Nothing new, just same sh-t different day.

Montana needs to wake up and smell the coffee. And I'm sure this happens in other places beside Montana.
