Our sister from the Blackfeet tribe at least got us something from the white man's goverment. Our many peoples have always been taken advantage of by these invaders who took most all we were granted by the Great Spirit to look after.
The white man's government in Washington D.C. seldom, if ever, kept a treaty with any of our many peoples. The Europeans who invaded our many lands for centuries sold lands to the white man's government that were not theirs to sell.
One cannot own the land. It is the Great Spirit's to grant caretakership to we here below until we go join the ancestors. We use what we need to eat & heal ourselves with.
The white race & Europeans before them are never satisfied with what they had or have, they only want more & more until all that is around them is destroyed & good for nothing. Greed is a disease of the spirit &the heart.
