Dear, First Nation People

Please accept my most sincere apology for our behavior 50 years ago. We have thought long and hard about what happened and we realized how very upset and angry all of you must have been. We really sorry for creating situation, which I know we should have handled better. I admit that I was wrong and can only say how sorry we were. We can promise all you that this will never happen again and hope that you will give us the opportunity to prove this to all the First nation. I understand that it might be difficult for you guys to accept our apology but hope that this letter will help. I will visit each tribe this week to apologize in person and hope that you guys will be able to give us another chance.
