Tribal Disenrollments, Moratorium & Corruption: Indian Country Disaster

YOU can learn about the corruption and abuses of civil rights in Indian Country with a bit of reading and some "course work" on the injustices to Native Americans from their OWN TRIBES.  

YOU can share with family, friends and government.  Help them earn a diploma for knowledge earned and SHARED.
     There has been so much coverage of the latest (meaning last two years) rash of tribal disenrollments at Nooksack, Grand Ronde, Hopland to name a few. 

I thought it would be good to bring some historical context to the issue.

In this post, I put up links to some of  the many stories that have ended with over 11,000 Native Americans, suffering harm from their tribes, coupled with the failure of the BIA/Interior/Federal Governments to handle their trust responsibilities.

Each link will take you to a blog post, each blog post can be shared on your FB pages, Twitter and Pinterest. Sharing it means FEWER people can say "We didn't KNOW". There is a search bar on the upper left of the blog.
