Thanks Jay. When I was growing up people in Indian Country often said "When I get my Indian money, I'm going to . . ." For all the land taken we received 50 cents an acre for prime timbered real estate in Washington state. Our families were "homesteaded" of their property and out of their homes in the 1920's. For all of that we received 50 cents many years later. I wish we had that negotiation over again.
