Wowiee - The White House has done NOTHING for our Native Americans period. Shove them into trains, put them into land the no one wants, nor even helps them with hot heat in winter. This is just another SMACK in the face. My grandparents came over from Germany, but I so wish no would of entered the USA and it would of been such a great National Park...Noted Cal, dear friend with EXTREME ANGER AND SORROW!!!

Despicable! How dare the government continue to treat Native Americans like they are nothing,! My ancestors traveled the Trail of Tears, then forced to live in areas they did not want....GRRR!

Since the white house and all are having an attack of morality it is the right thing to do to honor all contracts and not claim being broke after all they want a war we cannot afford and they are out in full array.. then so give the Native Americans what is owed them in way of this complaint. It is right and fair. We expect no less since our government now has a conscience.

Why is anyone surprised at this. The government has proven time and again that it doesn't know how to keep its word, or even a written contract, to any of citizens, but especially to the Native Americans.

lyn - our government has no conscience...I don't think any of our officials even know what that is.

Agree, where are the petitions...who knows, they might do some good, because they couldn't do any more harm than our wonderful white house, so removed from its people.

Sheila? I am being sarcastic; and at the same time making a statement with a point blank point. At this time they want something from us cause they "claim" they are so appalled by this and that...then put the heat on their so called moral butts and prove it or be further shamed into the lying pieces of ragweed that you are..
And you are right...... It is my psychology, to make them prove it. Join me in the fight.
