Tony MercrediI don't feel that the United Nations is really complete. We know what's the United Nations but in my traditional upbringing, the teachings that were taught to me by my Elders -- that there are four nations. There are four groups of peoples in this world. There is the black people, there is the white people, there is the yellow people and there is the red people. I see in United Nations the presence of three of those peoples: the white people, the black people and the yellow people. But where are the red people?
