An Indian [foreign] nation can buy land outside their reservation and seed it to their nation? So, when the Japanese were buying real estate in Manhattan and Montana, did that become part of the Japanese Empire?

Thanks again to our federal government...

Dear Sir,
The Indians in question are trying to get back some
the land the was stolen by the U.S.Gov .
That's it!
The U.S.Gov . has always lied and mistreated
the American Indians.
You know it as well as I!
As far as the Japs etc.
Mr.Sony and his buddies already own us.
You know it as well as I!
They have the money to pay-off our
politicians to get what they want.
We gave it to them when we bought
their crap they sell in our stores
and when we drive their cars.
It is our job as AMERICANS to stop other
countries from taking us over.

You're way off on your point. The Japanese are not US citizens and they didn't have ancestral roots in Montana and Manhattan.

Hey I saw the tribes new tv ad the other day and they want to comeback to New Mexico! I thought they were aleady here with the Mescaleros?

The dude at the end even said something like "dont let history repeat itself"... or some crud like that...

What does he mean?

Does this mean that if they dont get this casino to open... they will kill another 500 people that live within 50 miles of Deming? I mean... that what the history says they did when they went on the war path didnt they?

Jeepers Mr. Indian... you really want the casino pretty dog-gone bad now dont cha?

ft sill should not mislead the public on the issue of the homelands with their tv ads. they were giving the oppertunity to come home to Mescalero, NM and San Carlos, AZ with all the other Chiricahuas however only 80%of them choose to come home and the other 20% made the choice to stay at ft sill OK and live like urban indians on small lots of land. They didnt want to come home to the Apache Homelands like the rest so why are they trying to come home now? its not right that they are allowed to mislead the state of NM.

Look up the home page for the Fort Sill tribe and look at the history section of their unofficial web page. In 1913 according to their own "history" they were offered to return to NM and some were, to the Mescalero tribe.

Tribal Chairperson is a deceptive person. Playing for the $ and nothing more. They do not want to return here. They already have a casino and interest in others.

I'd prefer an orgainzation that conducted themselves in a more professional and honest manner than these people. The "poor me, poor me" thing has gotten too old for me to give a crap about this anymore.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
