Armed militants at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge continue to damage both the delicate ecosystem of the refuge and archeological sites of critical importance to the Burns Paiute Tribe. I'd call this provocation ....

Ammon Bundy was quoted, in effect, as saying Native American culture has been replaced and the only one that matters is the current one. Idiot!

Ammon Bundy has been quoted as saying, in effect, that Native American cultures don't matter because they came before the present culture, as if that excuses this destruction. Idiot!

While I agree that the items should be better stored and protected this is not the way to go about things. He wants a Representative from the Nation to go there; well if Indian people do they'll be the ones shot and put behind bars for taking their own artifacts.

I'd like to say, go home, your point well taken, let the Native people then contact those who have stored the artifacts about a better way of displaying, storing, or even returning the items. It can't be done while under siege.

I read that comment more as an excuse/ justification than genuine concern by the diggers! They don't seem very well informed ... nor wanting to be better informed

Whenever there is civil war, atrocity or environment disaster, there are always opportunists seeking to exploit the situation. Very sad indictment of humankind.
