The tree hugger just love to portray Indians as super environmentalist types.
Most of it is as bogus as many of the Nostradamus quatrains that have been quoted the last few years.
Something happens in the world and someone will make up a quatrain and post it and no one ever checks if it is real or not but it will be quoted
repeatedly from then on.
The environmentalist just love the people that believe this pap and spread it. the people that don't question any thing are what the environmental
groups what for members.
One of the common things the plains Indians did was start large prairie fires that sometimes burned 100s of squire miles.
The next spring the buffalo would move to the new grass in the burn areas.
Been to a reservation, or Indian community lately Not just a bunch of broken down cars and appliances, like many areas, but full blown filth.
Trash and household garbage everywhere. Maybe they cant afford to go to the landfill?
I know for a fact that some counties in Calif and Nevada do not provide any dumps for tribes that live in remote rural areas.
but these same states do provide dumps for remote non indian areas.
Its a state money deal. the states leave it to the federal govermemnt to provide all services to tribal land and the feds are to cheap to.
I watched the feds(BIA) build a small town for one tribe with propane tanks for every home.
Only problem the only place to get propane was over 100 miles away and no company would come out and fill the tanks.
How would a native American with a old pickup truck load a 200 to 300 gallon propane take on the truck and take it to fill.(illegal in all states
I have also seen new Bureau of Indian Affairs built housing with new septic tanks. but after about 5 years the tanks would need pumping and there was
no one to pump them and the state required that septic pumping trucks could only be dumped at approved site and never approved one on tribal land or
any where close.
Then there is how the BIA treats native Americans.
A Federal Commodity Food Program is active but supplies mostly inappropriate foods (high in carbohydrate and/or sugar) for the largely diabetic
population of the Reservation.
Here is what the Pine Ridge Oglala Lakota (Sioux) have to deal with and how they are robbed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs that over bills the tribe
for the Sh*T they do for the tribe.(the feds use money allocated to tribes to pay for anything on tribal land. and many times the money is used for
things the tribe does not want or need. they also take any money that is for the tribes from mining or oil and gas leases federal government leases
not tribal leases and spend it for what ever the feds want not what the tribes want.)
some of the Pine Ridge Oglala Lakota (Sioux) have even ask the UN for help.(for this the feds will cause the tribe even more problems)
