Raul Grijalva is a hero. The republicans here in Arizona can't stand him, which is one more reason why I like him. That aside, he really has a lot of passion for the environment, and human rights issues.

Did anybody visit the site and read the comments?? They were really racist and ignorant! I feel a rant coming on... People who want to harshly judge reservations should educate themselves - read some history and law - then try living under those conditions for years and years. I hope this tribe is successful in it's efforts to expand it's borders. Question: Recently researched treaties/laws - I thought land that was not "individually" owned could be transfered to the Land Trust with/by consent of Interior Secretary - did I get this wrong?
