native americans are like any other race theres your drunk,the drug abuser,the one that dont want to have a job.I have lived in grand forks for 22 years and white people around here have plenty of drunks,drug users,and also prescription abuser like that doctor they caught handing scripts left and right to anyone who gave him money so dont go judging the native americans cause we all have good ones and bad ones.

Donald Wheat could be describing any individual in any town in any country. What you said is plain ignorant. Not bathing? Come on! Those are common characteristics of people with little resources, not because of heritage!
I pay ALOT of taxes to the government every year. 1/3 of my check, every week. Any money we can get back from the government is welcomed, no matter what the reason. I'm sure anyone who got the stimulus check didn't say "Well I'm not spending this because.."
In the end, what matters most is a sense of community, which I know happens in some small towns, and especially on reservations...they take care of each other. Where I live, your neighbors would watch someone break in your house and not intervene.
