i see nothing wrong with giving food to the indians for votes!!-- even the indians are smart enough to take the food and then go vote the way they want to whether they took the food or not!!

Ya, but the Indians on the Crow Creek Reservation are so used to voting for anyone who buys them anything that it's almost a given that they'll vote for the person who buys their vote. That's how the crooked tribal councilmen do it there.

Lets get one thing straight here once and for all to see and question,,, if they want.
.
First.... We are Not "Indians".
.
We are Native Peoples,, Indigenous Peoples.
.
This is not India,, and we are not from India.
therefore, not "Indians".
.
However, we can be called "America's Indians".
hense,,, "American indians".
.
In the 'Declaration of Independence', Indigenous peoples were called merciless murdering savages.
( that should be updated along with everything else, but it's 'persevered' instead:(
.
as food and votes,,, yes bring the food or buy us anything and we will vote for anything.anyone.

I may not vote the way you want me to, but i will tell you I will vote for you and I can always repeant on sunday in one of any of the Many Christian Church Denominations sitting on our reservation for the small time B.S. lie.
.
all in all, Just remember 'one' thing about us,,,

We Are Not "Indians".
It's a 500 year old mistake, and it's time to correct it.
.
Don't you people know the differance between Native peoples and the Real Indians from India?,,
:)
.

A friendly question from a real Indigenous person.
