Native American Leader Slams Trump For 'Culturally Insensitive' Pocahontas Remark

US President Donald Trump reacts as he honours Navajo Code Talkers for their contributions during World War Two at the White House in Washington, November 27, 2017.

USA president Donald Trump made a racial joke concerning Native Americans on Monday, during a White House ceremony honouring Navajo veterans of World War II. "As a white person, I think I'm in a better position to know about this stuff".

Pocahontas was a Powhatan Native American woman, born around 1595, known for her involvement with English colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. "Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago". Democratic Senator Tom Udall, who represents New Mexico, said that the ceremony showed just how low Mr Trump could go.

After stating that the ceremony was meant to highlight the accomplishments and heroism of the code talkers, Begaye criticized the president for undermining the whole thing.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says the president didn't intend it as a racial slur.

"The Marines made us yell "Geronimo" when we jumped out of planes and that didn't offend me either."
Along the way, thousands died of cold, disease or hunger. "What Trump displayed today was an embarrassment to our values and a disgraceful insult to the heroes of our history". According to a White House press release, five code talkers attended the event.

"We have different languages, different skills, different talents, and different religion".

Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye explained to CNN that the way the term was used would be characterized as an ethnic slur, and he said it "doesn't belong in the room when our war heroes are being honored". He frequently called her that throughout his presidential campaign and claimed that she was lying about her genealogy, saying it was "racist" and that she should be fact-checked. "I don't think that (this) is (a slur)", she responded. "I don't understand why no one's asking about that question and why that isn't constantly covered".
