And remember folks, these are the people who won't pay Massena their cut of the gambling profits. Not to mention they also don't pay taxes and receive free healthcare, free education, free grant money etc.

At some point all the free crap needs to end.

Your tax dollars at work.

Idiots...It is going to combat domestic violence. Here's a stat, over 30 percent of native women are victims of domestic violence. The stunning part is, that 80 percent of the women are victims of non-natives. So stop being a d*ck and just say good for them. they are actually trying to do something for the community.

Here's another fact, I pay taxes which in turn get sent to the Indians for no other reason than them being Indian. The Indians however don't pay anything for me. At what point do they step up and get a job of their own and provide to me?

The reason for the FREE stuff is because non-natives people took all of the land. They took the indian's land and tried to strip them of their culture. They made it impossible for them to live off the land as they always had. So the FREE stuff you speak of, wasn't FREE at all. It cost the indians far more than a racist loser like yourself could ever imagine.

This is irrefutable truth, however historically is is the natural order of things for the strong or more advanced to conquer the weak or technologically inferior, appropriate their land, and cast them out or force assimilation.

I fail to see the justification of the sense of entitlement some Native Americans seem to have. I believe they fail to realize that nearly every people as a whole was at one time conquered by a superior power and had their land stripped from them similarly.

Although I am genuinely sympathetic, there are no special circumstances surrounding what happened to the Native Americans, as similar scenarios have played out for millenia. And, unlike most other cultures, Native Americans are the lucky ones that actually received recognition for the unethical actions, and subsequent benefits.

In all honesty, Native Americans are of the very few who have received any concessions for previous wrongdoings. It is all of the "non natives" as you put it that got the short end of the stick from those that displaced our ancestors. But since its ancient history, no one seems to care, its just interesting stories to read about.

Ok 596,000 what to f for? Most of the native women fight like men anyway,. What is this money for, to by new vehicles to smuggle their grugs and cigs in?

if you guys were still running this place you'd still be wearing your loincloths, running around with sticks, and still living in tree houses trying to stay warm through the winter. I'm pretty sure you guys are enjoying your designer clothes, the siding on your homes, and we all know you guys love your food. Hell, if natives had to chase down deer today half of them would pass out, the other half would probably need an insulin shot.

I expect nothing from you. Other than shutting the Fuck up about a culture you know nothing about. And what could you possibly have against Amish people? They provide for themselves, live a better way of life than you and me both, and are usually friendly to ANY person they come across, blackm white or red. U ppl are racist trash talking pricks

obviously we didn't kill you off, hence how you're living and breathing on your computer right now. I think there is a good group of you, and I also think there is a group of you who don't live traditionally and who disrespect your entire culture along with everyone who surrounds it. Every culture and group of people have bad apples, I just don't think American tax payer money should go towards a group of people who hate America, American culture, and who hate the fact that Europeans colonized North America.

Learn your history my friend..and yes you are completely right but that is no excuse for developing racism..there's white Americans out there..many more than native Americans that realize we live in a world of shit and we all know the cause..American government!

This is what I'm talking about... The government is giving your people half a million dollars to not beat your spouses, yet you sit here and say the country to going to He'll because of the government. I don't disagree that this country is in a bad place in many aspects, and I do concede that there are many other Americans of all races who believe that as well. BUT, I see your rants about the "dirty diseased white people" and I'm curious as to the actual basis of your rant. Do you think half a million dollars should go to the Res to stop domestic violence? And if you do, then is it not true that the "dirty white people" are giving you this money? I see this coming full circle, Natives want the money, and are fine with receiving it, but still refuse as a general group to respect and not be counter racist towards white people. Once again, I'm making a statement based on a generalization, not on every individual.
