In my opinion it is better to provide indigenous population with financial compensation and tax cuts(including land tax cut) then provide indigenous reservation land for the natives. But if we want to change the policy, we still need the indigenous population to vote on the topic.

So...as a native american ur self, do u prefer financial compensation or indeginous land reservation?
I already had a successful career & business when I confirmed I'm from Mohawks, so I don't want either, but I want fair treatment to all Native Amer's and this may mean both $$ & return of some land. We really did sell some of it, especially
Hi patty, iam going to look up the info you gave. I always look to be informed. Living in AB This is an important issue. I do what I can to keep my imprint down, at the same time realize it's a serious issue. How do we supply without a pipeline?
"theyre already a sovereign nation....how about making them equal." Amen!
And how about honoring the treaties that already exist and not attacking them, polluting their land, or stealing from them?
Agreed, K. The tar sands in Alberta created a major Cancer Corridor with new cancer hositals in almost all of the eastern half of Alberta, and here it comes down the Keystone XL pipe of death called the "black snake" by the local tribes. I am angry.
it would be fantastic if theyre given equality.....some new ways of doing things,here in the us of a.along with whatever they choose to call themselves. something to counter-balance this money-worship.
Actually patty that's not true. I live in Alberta. Not one I know calls the pipeline the black snake. Is there something about that I can read? The key stone pipeline is being connected to the line in the USA because they want us to pipe more oil.
Nonsense.Talk directly to Sioux leaders on 3 reserves in AB. Black Snake Prophecy is Sioux/Hopi origin. Talk to heads of Cancer Corridor Hospitals AB. TAR SANDS, not oil. My heritage/medical degree open doors, but see Bloomberg, PRI.org, ienearth.org
Patty with all respect. Please don't call a proper conversation nonsense. Nit one of my native friends right here Alberta are even from the south nation that you quote. You specifically said Alberta. And your info is wrong. The the tar sand is how ex
Just to add from other comment the tar sands are where the oil products we send you are extracted from. Please don't say things unless you back them up. The products sent is to supply the USA. I HAVE LOOKED AND ONLY 2 new ones in Alberta.
