Steve, you have made very good points in your post. Many folks have absolutely no idea the fraud that was committed against Chief Cornplanter and the Seneca nation of indians. Your governor and all of his predecessors continue the fraud. Here in Ohio, our governor and all his predecessors are just as guilty as Rendell & Co. only with the Shawnee.

The only other people that I have met that are equally descent and honorable on their reservation are the Navajo. I have not been to other reservations, but I suspect that they too, are just as good.
