No. Reese tells us she found it in American Indian Magazine, Vol. IV, No. 2, April-June, 1916, page 189. She adds:
The day to honor Native peoples? That'd be "American Indian Day" celebrated the day after Thanksgiving.
The small boy of today, if asked to draw an Indian, would certainly draw one in paint and feathers.
The small girl takes great delight in reading Little House on the Prairie.
The father getting an Indian costume and wigwam for his son? Hmm... Boy Scouts, maybe? Order of the Arrow?
And the mother who asks her small son and his pals to stop "yelling like Indians"? If you search Google blogs with "wild Indians" you'll find Todd, writing on March 1st, 2009 "...I would not tolerate them acting like a couple of wild Indians..." and Heather, on March 2nd, "I told the boys to settle down and quit acting like wild Indians..." and Raj, on March 3rd, "...Newton and Pye, running around the house like a pair of wild Indians."
Considering how we stereotype and marginalize Indians, every day is "Indian Day." We "honor" them by putting old-fashioned Indians on coins, statues, and sports logos. Then we continue the behavior described above.
In other words, we honor them with one day of alleged honors and 364 days of phony or offensive "honors." When we celebrate how "noble and brave" they were, we're really celebrating how fierce and savage they were. Indians may be forgiven for wondering, "Where's the honor?"
