So not a afraid, as I thought and I preached to others what a mess this is going to be or sticky from the start. Because the Fed. Gov. knows where the money is at or grab however you see it most are not going to sell, we know it and so does the individual Indian Nations and the Fed .Gov. I know my Tribe is part of the top 40 with Millions at stake if not in the Billions. Not enough money can buy Culture in my book and my book is pretty thick with Culture enriched with wisdom's past....Sorry my land is not for sell. Mine not fractionated as the Gov. purports. and will never grow to the size of 500 members ever owning in 500 yrs. and my family is large and it still will not grow to that number....Hard to believe in the propaganda that comes from a agency that now, in this part of the litigation needs to formulate a land consolidate dept. to understand the enormous task of the real estate that is involved to begin with, is redundant when this should be the very task of the DOI which already has the records supposedly and if they do then they know the enormous effort this is going to be and they gave themselves 10 yrs to settle. So we will hear from time to time the rhetoric and the propaganda that is now happening and you cannot help but think shoulda. woulda, coulda. And then most Indians of their Nations understand how this will also play a role in the Nations Treaties with the U.S and then how this is going to flow down the individual Nations constitutions to those who have established Gov. with their tribes and I see the what I coin as the Triangle that this will form and the round table game that will play in this triangle and why this will take as long if not longer than 10 yrs and then those that will have passed away will not see their day of reconciliation with the Gov. as they may see it.......In the center of the Triangle is you and me. Who will win in the end when no one will sell? The Fed Govt. Why? If there is no land consolidation and there will be some but very little for the few that do relinquish their land back to the tribe, and then there will be those who will chose the complete opposite and will not sell and that money goes back to the Govt. How's that for chump change? My argument is that money that was awarded as a part of the Cobell suit is just that 3 Billion.
