Is providing indigenous reservation land or financial compensation a better idea?
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.
i think its more like the rest of us will be put on reservations, and the first nations get their land back.
heeheehee.....cool if that happened everywhere. hawaii, gaza, ....dreammmm.
but it wont. listen, theyre already a sovereign nation....how about making them equal.
"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
My contacts in the Shawnee United Remnant Band bought back much of the land they once owned here in Ohio and now have thriving businesses on it, so they might appreciate some tax cuts.
The Mohawks to which I'm connected, two different bands, are not federally, state, or provincially recognized, so we probably would not receive either money or tax cuts. Mohawk and other Iroquois present in my state did not own much land, but the two government-recognized Mohawk groups do own land in New York and Ontario. They are tired of being pushed by State Police northward to Canada from the New York side of their own reservation, I can tell you that!
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?
Not sure where you live. Here in Canada they already get both. If land is needed for anything involving native land then they are approached and an agreement is worked out and they are paid what their chief and lapeaders approve. Some of my friends live on reserves and some don't. But they all receive money from their band and pay no taxes when shopping on any reserve. If they pay taxes other places they get it all back. Some people even get a lump some when they turn 18 and fully paid schooling. I am not sure what else there is to do? I have family who are part native and they receive all of these benifits.

What are the negative impacts of the compulsory acquisition of land by the government?Is the compensation on the loss of land and property ever adequate?
