How about the Treaty giving the Black Hills to the Native Americans? Some white man trespassed and found gold. They were booted from their land. Native Americans revered the land. Not rape and exploited it. What did the brave General Custer do, sneak into their camps at night and kill men women and children. After being defeated at Little Big Horn the Seventh Calvary flag was captured, while migrating though the Pine Ridge Reservation, the new Seventh Calvary ambushed these Native Americans which at that point consisted of only, women, children, old men and women. Only one survived and that was a baby because her mother fell on her shielding her from bullets. The Col. in charge took the child into his home, but was never treated the same as his own children. When this girl died she was taken back to Pine Ridge and buried with the rest of the ambushed Native Americans. Check your history, this is true. To this day, as Americans when we want something we take it. If we think there is injustice we fight for it. Lets start fighting for something worth while. Not other peoples civil wars and their freedoms. How about the Billions of dollars we send to Mexico and other countries to curb their hunger and provide medical care. LETS START AT HOME!!!!!!!!!!

Go to your local rez, get drunk, beat your significant other and bitch how the white guy swipped your land over two hundred years ago, and how your so traumatized by it you need government assistance. And within a week you'll be getting a check.

Now wasn't that easy?

Move over legit American Indian tribes/nations…..50,000 children plus and more coming illegals aliens are the NEWEST WARDS of the US Federal Government!

Before long from the US estimate of 11 MILLION to actual numbers (per Border Patrol Agents) 20+ MILLION illegals are intent on being US citizens.

No more indian tribes to contend with anymore…..
