"Theft is theft. Can we repair all that damage? No, of course not, but when i lived on the Pine Ridge Rez in 1995 the Lakota were not allowed to vote.
This is an extension of that bigotry and alleged racial superiority. Truthfully, in this day and age a vacuous people - most exemplified by our politicians and wealthy - define virtually everything by dollars. Someone with money influenced our politicians to make a bad decision because they had more money than others who are more intelligent and compassionate. Since our politicians stupidly (a reflection of our "civilization") ascribe more validity, intelligence, and wisdom to the rich, they have supported the desire of the wealthy. Rich people don't accrue IQ points with their Visa cards, but some apparently think so."
" I don't believe any Native American Sacred Grounds should be disturbed . Mr. Nady build your project somewhere else!! Haven't the Elem Pomo been mistreated enough with toxic mercury waste? Must you destroy their sacred lands, too? Give it back to them and take it as a business loss, or charitable gift. Building a development will just stress you out and cause a heart attack anyway. Be a friend to the Elem Pomo, you will see that it will serve you better , and you'll be doing the right thing!!"
