For this week readings we had to read an article about Native Americans â€śland rich and dirt poorâ€?. This article baffles me and makes me very upset. After we take the land from Native Americans we then give them land and wealth that we govern, but its not like they control there assets, the federal government does. The federal government controls everything the Native American do on there land, be it gas prices or when and how the land is lease, everything is â€śheld in trustâ€? by the government, and is said that everything is in there best interest. The way the United States has treated Native Americans is really upsetting. Starting with the Allotment Act and then the boarding schools, all attempts to assimilate the native people, if anything they deserve to truly live in sovereignty and I believe leave in complete control of there own assets and wealth.
