Commemorate Natives on $2 bills

The U.S. Mint has issued commemorative state quarters as well as Susan B. Anthony, Sacajawea and presidential dollar coins.

I would suggest issuing $2 bills to commemorate various Native American Indians, the list would be endless, and might encourage the use of the $2 bill.

An excellent source of information would be the Reader’s Digest book “Through Indian Eyes: The Untold Story of Native American Peoples” issued in 1995. It is in the Library of Congress and is quite comprehensive.

This letter was e-mailed to 73 tribes and mailed to 110. Please share this letter with your people and other tribes and encourage them to write their senators and representatives in Congress.

I thought of this after watching the series “We Shall Remain” on PBS. I have also written to the White House requesting that President Andrew Jackson be removed from the $20 bill because of what he did to the Indians of the Southeast.
