    Native Americans Issue Strong Warning To Federal Government

    Public letter to Senator McCain, House Rep. Richard Pombo

    The federal government committed the world's longest holocaust against the American Indian people! The federal government signed treaties with Indian nations, and made it a point to break every one of them! The federal government enslaved Indian men, women and children on reservations!

    Now you're saying that Indians are reservation shopping?

    United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD)

    In a strongly worded finding, CERD called on the United States to halt the destructive land-use practices it has allowed on some of the 60 million acres the Western Shoshone claim until a settlement is reached on the status of that land. The area stretches across most of Nevada and parts of Idaho, Utah, and California.

    I would have no problem with Native American tribes having every piece of land they are entitled to under all treaties returned to them. They were, and still are far better stewards of the land than white-men ever were.

    WTF? Indians got there asses kicked in a war that they lost. To the victor go the spoils. Fucked up? It sure is. Deal with it. IT happened almost 200 years ago. They sound like blacks crying about slavery when none of them were slaves.
