I wonder where the Crow Creek Natives were when the IRS was taking their land? If the IRS tried such a thing in my territory, Mohawk territory the people certainly would have put an end to that effort by any means necessary.

Don't expect government to help, even an Indian government, in many cases governments are the problem not the cure.

Another form of Stealing Land from the Native American Indians that has a hidden political agenda. This is horrendous act by the IRS. If you got land Thank an Indian! The United States Government spilled Native American Bolood to obtain valuable land and placed them on barren Indian resevation land that did not have any economic value.

Native Americans should not pay property tax - that is obscene.

Bush would never have allowed this. I quess Obama thinks stealing land from the Native Americans is OK.
