When you do get your money it is spent on stupid stuff. when you make your own money, like the Shiprock fair, it is stolen by greedy big chiefs. Corruption is the only language spoken on the REZ. Oh and how will we know who you are dumd--- there will be a million of you there. Maybe we should sink more money into EDUCATION on the rez and see if that helps!!
Whats this "we" crap? Oh you mean the feds who are getting their money from the Chinese, Indians, Saudis and your paycheck? My paycheck? The one I get for wORKING? haha. Keep spouting your crap all the way from Texas. Heard your big chief Bush stole more for him and his buddies then any and all the tribes in N and S america ever got! Who's laughing now?

I agree that natives should have sovereign nations. I want them to have their own everything. I especially support the idea of Dine Education; I know it seems like a oxymoron. But this way, the Navajos can learn all about their wonderful proud past. They can read all about it, oh wait, they never got around to that written language thing. Obviously the white man's fault they didn't get around to it. Anywho, they can tell their classes stories of their conquest over other tribes and how they earned the term "horse thief" from their neighbors. In the meantime, our childrens state tests scores will soar, both from navajos not taking the tests and because our teachers will be able to move forward without the restrictions of the daily burden of teaching kids who don't want to be in school anyway.
So best off luck, just keep your hands in your pockets till you figure out how to fund it yourselves. You are, after all, sovereign.

I am so sick of minorities getting freebies and hand outs. I am not racist at all and have many black and native friends. Free school (fort lewis durango,co) and a monthly or quarterly check. Isnt that enough to educate someone to take care of themself. I mean come on. At fort lewis I paid my own tuition and drove a 1982 dodge colt to school. I parked every morning amongst escalades and jacked up native trucks. Sat in class next to some indian who didnt pay a dime to be there and after class I got to go to a job serving alcohol to that same indian using his extra tuition money. It is bullshit. Hell the best man in my wedding has 100 acres of land he got for free and the nation is building him a house for free, meanwhile my mortgage is 1000 per month. It is time to let everyone provide for themselves. I didnt even mention the reverse job discrimination. Ever read a help wanted add that read "prefrence given to white"? Hell no, but each of you have read a "prefrence given to native applicants". Stop with the pitty party for indians. They work the system for every penny they can. It is nonsense

probably RIGHT! Take note below:

A preview of the final 2010 census data suggests that the racial composition of America is shifting. For the first time in history, more than half of the children in the U.S. under the age of two are minorities. The new information is further proof that the U.S. is becoming significantly browner, and by the middle of the century, many researchers suggest that racial and ethnic minorities will become the majority.

The Washington Post reports:

“Currently, non-Hispanic whites make up just under half of all children 3 years old, which is the youngest age group shown in the Census Bureau’s October 2009 annual survey, its most recent. In 1990, more than 60 percent of children in that age group were white.”

So currently, you comment of 'minorities' is being seen and heard well in advance by those deemed non-Hispanic whites.

In fact, considering the battle over illegal immigration and US citizenship, we're talking well over 20+ Million 'NEWLY-MINTED" US citizens in this generation (2000-2020). With this estimate by the next generation 2020-2040, your white popluation will be well into the minority if not pushed back into the Mid-West.

Hispanic majority will have themselves well-established into the SouthWest US and will have significant impact to local, State, National Politics.....

My suggestion is this is what is coming...not a matter of IF, but when.

Legitimate established American Indian Tribes should be the very least of your worries as the Indian Tribes (Navajo Nation) will be swallowed in this major off-set, i.e . Hispanic influence into National politics.

These prairie n***ers will never get their **** together and will always be begging the feds for more and will always be claiming discrimination. They will **** this $3.4 billion away and will be back for more. Instead of wanting to buy back portions of the reservations that some Indians sold to the whiteman, they should consider selling all of reservations to people who have the money and the itelligence to utilize the resources available. Leaving it in the hands of these stupid people will only exacerbate a bad situation. Get rid of the reservations, force these people to get educations and real jobs, and I bet you we would see a much improved Native American. They would have money to buy good booze instead of that cheap stuff they have smuggled onto the dry reservations. Of course this won't happen and so we will have drunks and wife beaters and leeches as long as the reservation system exists.
Who do you think created this whole mess for them in the first place!

Yea! more $ coming to the Native Tribes for their education. Understand this, the tuition waivered at the Fort Lewis College for native americans and include Hawiians, Alaskans (Eskimos) and Pillipines. We still pay for housing, meals, books and other fee, such as admission, registration and technology at Fort Lewis College.
HUD housing, food stamp and medical are not available free to the Tribes. We still have to apply through DEPT of Economic Security (Govt) and be eligible for the program.
I hope the $60 million will go the the education,especially for those individuals with high income families. Our Workforce program have available employment and vocational training, many of them are not eligible based on income. These are families working at power plants and mines on the Navajo Nation.
Looking forward for the $ coming for education. This will benefit my children to pay for their housing and meals at Fort Lewis College.

About time someone tells it like it is! Too many freeloaders, I know I walk among my people and see how lazy they are, they want handouts constantly, whereas I was brought up to work for what I got! Even the educators and professionals are not what they claim, it's no wonder newer generations now are clueless with no drive!
