Glad you posted that.

I need to notify tribal council that we too are entitled to more than $300 per person from the Great White Father in Washington. That is unless you have objections to First Nation members receiving what is due us. Not so long ago we asked Mr. Babbitt to please reconcile our trust accounts. He had several years to accomplish this task (US court ordered, I might add). It went no where. We are missing $2.4 Billion dollars from our trust accounts. This was money owed to our tribes for lands acquired (stolen is too harsh a word) since English first came upon our land.

We hold no ill will or disrepect for the negro slaves. But there are no more of them alive and so much time has passed that I cannot see them receiving their money before we do. And that is unfortunate for them as well as us.
