All I got out of it is the tribal chairperson is having an identity crisis.

Well that and you all had a res. It was called San Carlos. It was in Arizona. You gave that up when your grandfather kept killing people and went on the war path.

Just sayn's.

Those Indians probably took a closer look at some of Deming's problems (crime, poverty, and political poo-poo) and figured they had suffered enough at the hands of the people of the two races that almost wiped them out. Deming,'Ugh'.

Reservation status... just given.

Next phase... casino.

When says u? Within 6 months? A year?

I say as soon as New Mexicos newest reservation paperwok is signed... and the ink is still wet.

Your kidding right...

The Chiricahua and Gila wilderness traded for the San Carlos reservation. Have you ever seen the San Carlos reservation. Have you ever visited the Chiricahua's. I don't think so...

If any tribe deserves this, it's the Ft. Sill tribe.
