Stay on the reservation then.

Do the circle dance with Chicken feathers stuck on you butt while beating a drum.

Quit whinning and complaining.

Quit expecting the rest of the citizens of the USA to build your schools, roads, jails, houses and about everything else. So much grant and aid is given to reservation which only adds to the give me more attitude.

Blacks, Mexicans and other minoritys can survive in the main stream and you see them succeeding in every walk of live.

Where is the Native Americans?? They only succeed if they are a cross breed with another race. You never see pure Native Americans succeeding anywhere.

The part breeds live off the fact that they can succeed and then act like they are Indians and in most cases return to the reservation and run things.

Turn the land over to the true Native Americans let them control their lives and land.

Set them free.

I think you are afraid to live as a free Indian in a world that you become whatever according to your abilities.

You would rather let the tribal goverment tell you want to do.

No Reservations: The Case for Dismantling the Indian Bureaucracy

If ever a federal agency were a candidate for termination, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) would make for a good choice. The BIA combines patronage and ethnic separatism into a single package, wasting sizable tax dollars in the process. Yet few in Congress have the stomach for a fight with supporters of the bureau, now with a roughly $2.7 billion annual budget. That’s not the only Indian agency in need of serious downsizing.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs actually goes back nearly two centuries. Secretary of War John Calhoun virtually single-handedly created the BIA in 1824 to oversee treaty negotiations, conduct trade, establish budgets, and operate schools. In 1849, Congress moved the bureau from the War Department to the new Interior Department, where it since has been housed. In recent decades, the agency has become a conduit through which tribal leaders and their allies can accrue money and influence. It’s a variation on what public choice economists call “regulatory capture,” in which firms – especially large ones – effectively dictate policies and practices to the regulator, so as to maximize competitive advantage.

The current system is a by-product of periodic warfare beginning in the early-17th century and lasting through most of the 19th century. There are now 565 federally-recognized Indian (including Alaskan) tribes in this land of ours, representing nearly two million persons. Indian territories comprise some 55 million surface acres. Crucially, a tribe operates under a federal grant of sovereign status. Taken as a whole, Indian tribes are a loose confederacy of mini-nations, each with its own elected tribal government overseeing courts, schools, job training, health care, infrastructure development, and on due occasion, casinos.

Within their respective reservations, tribal leaders enjoy enormous power. Too often, they and employees use this power as a cover for corruption. Recent cases abound. At the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in northeastern Montana, for example, six office employees – two federal and four tribal – pleaded guilty last year to embezzling roughly $400,000 from a tribal credit program. In Oklahoma, Dawena Pappan, former secretary-treasurer for the Tonkawa tribe, pleaded guilty in federal court that year to stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars in casino proceeds with help from other Tonkawa officers.

Reservation tribal governments across the United States (U.S.) constantly proclaim their sovereignty status as independent nations, which is inherently false based on the fact that reservations are trust property of the U.S. federal government. Which means, reservation land is property of the U.S. government and also, the reason why tribal governments do not pay a property tax to a state (U.S. federal property cannot be taxed by a state). Reservation Indians are also dependent upon the federal government for Housing, Food, Medical care, and General Assistance (with the exception of a few federal reservation tribes). These factors prove reservation tribes are not sovereign, but are truly dependents of the U.S. federal government.
More proof of this dependency is evident by means of the enormously high annual unemployment rate (70%), extraordinarily high mortality rates, and extreme poverty & social ills; it’s these facts that demonstrate the Blackfeet tribe would perish without the federal governments help – how else could such an impoverished group exist in these inhuman conditions. The Blackfeet federal reservation is a perfect example of the vast majority of federal reservations in the U.S. The source of this 75-year old (1934-2009) political, economic, and social disaster is the direct result of uneducated and incompetent non-leaders of tribal government.
The reasons for these third world conditions are a direct result of the tribal leaders incompetence on business matters; they do not possess the credentials or qualifications to create employment or negotiate on any legitimate business matter. Tribal leaders are elected from an unskilled collection of nonprofessional tribal members. The educated tribal members leave the reservation from disgust and frustration after years of battling the deeply entrenched system of chaos, death, and tribal self-destruction; therefore, the electorate is presented with no educated and knowledgeable candidates to choose from on the ballot.
Tribal self-governance will never come about as long as the U.S. government is going to prop-up these incompetent entities. Historically, the association between the federal government and Indian tribes has been recognized and exercised as a paternalistic relationship. U.S. federal tax dollars taken from hardworking taxpaying citizens and given to the tribes has crippled, not helped the reservation Indian. It is this guaranteed federal financial safety net that has allowed the tribal corporate business (tribal governments are incorporated) to fail. In this capitalist world, corporations either succeed or fail based on their managerial competence. The federal government must hold tribal corporate entities to the same standards.
Why should this particular ethnic group be singled-out and given preferential treatment above-all-other U.S. citizens? This is un-American!
Reservation property can be distributed to tribal members, which will allow for the dissolution of the tribal government; upon termination of tribal governments—the Bureau of Indian Affairs (the federal agency that oversees all tribal government business affairs) can be simultaneously eliminated, thus further saving U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars. State tribal citizens will fall under the jurisdiction of the city, county, and state governments. The appropriate governmental departments will adjudicate all civil and criminal matters. The city, county, and state governments will govern taxation and regulation of property owned by Indians, as they do with all U.S. citizens.

What you are saying is stupid, the Five Civililized Tribes did this and very few Indians own the orginal grants to Indian land. There are no reservations in Oklahoma, the tribes made sure of this years ago. I would like to live on rez land in northern Arizona or New Mexico in a hogan with no running water no electricity no television so I can't hear or read about the white owned corporations destroying this beautiful land with their chemicals and distructive ways of dumping their byproducts. Mostly why I want to live on the rez, I wouldn't have a dumb ass white man for a next door neighbor. Fizz, Fizz, What A Relief It Would Be.

What you are actually saying is that Native Americans cannot exist in an open and free country. Individuals have to be protected by some oversight goverment be it the federal goverment, state goverment or tribal goverment that protects them from the rest of the citizens.

You want to live in a protected group that evidently cannot compete with the other races. Yet you want the other races of this country to provide nearly everything for you.

I could care less it you lived in a hut in the middle of no where. But you do not and you would not. You exist in a world created and built by white men. The very computer and car you run around in was created by white men.

The reason you do not want a white man living next you is because he would take care of his place and you would like like a reservation bun where others have to care for you.

Like I said then stay on the reservation then. Don't be using the cars and roads that white men built and paid for. Walk.

Quit whinning and complaining.

Quit expecting the rest of the citizens of the USA to build your schools, roads, jails, houses and about everything else. So much grant and aid is given to reservation which only adds to the give me more attitude.

Implement These Recommendations
1. Extend full and equal constitutional protection to all American citizens.
2. Devise a practical way to enforce contracts, including allowing aggrieved parties to file suit in state or federal court.
3. Separate the political and economic functions of tribes.
4. Extend guaranteed equal voting rights and political participation to everyone under tribal jurisdiction.
5. Eliminate the guardian/trust roles of the federal government, transferring functions to individuals, the local representative government, or other responsible entities.
6. Eliminate the territorial status of reservations.
7. Consider establishing temporary tax credits or enterprise zones to stimulate economic activity and employment on reservations.
8. Protect non-members from tribal taxation, regulation and licensing requirements.
9. Require all tribal claims to be filed solely against the federal government to be paid in monetary damages from general tax revenue.
10. Move Indians toward true self-determination - the same kind of self-determination other Americans enjoy, not one that is merely a disguise for another form of dependence.
