Many of the country's estimated 2.7 million Native Americans live in federally recognised tribal areas which are plagued with unemployment, alcoholism, high suicide rates, incest and other social problems.
Apart from social issues, US Native Americans are involved in near continuous disputes over sovereignty and land rights. Although they were given power over large areas, most of it in the west, their rights are repeatedly challenged by state governments.
Our internal affairs are ENTIRELY outside their affairs.
The US signed up in 2010 to the declaration, which establishes minimum basic rights for indigenous people globally.
In terms of Americans who would whine and cry to the International community. Well.. Boo on ya. If it can't be accomplished within the American system, leave America
Personally I think that Indigenous peoples the world over have been abused.
The US has signed up to a declration. I do not know if it has any legal standing. Do you not think that Native Americans should be treated propely..?

Get the UN out of the US and the US out of the UN. They have no business here.

I don't need to be told the goings on inside the UN and their councils; quite frankly they are scum in my books and should had dismantled back in the early 1950s.
