Lead: Changing attitudes toward Native Americans were revealed in a speech of President Woodrow Wilson in the summer of 1913.

                Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

                Content: Intellectual, idealistic, visionary, but often stubborn and lacking political deftness, Woodrow Wilson nevertheless helped America make the transition to the modern era. He was comfortable in the world of ideas, but had success in politics because of the force of his character, the compelling nature of his ideas, and a quite frankly, a lot of good fortune, usually related to division among his opponents. In many ways he was a transition figure, progressive ideas with occasionally not so progressive actions. At the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 he advocated the self-determination of peoples, but in 1914 and again in 1916, Wilson sent marines and troops to invade revolutionary Mexico.
