National Park Service Gives HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS to Tribes for BONES, but IGNORE What they DID TO THE LIVING.



The National Park Service announces grants in the millions to preserve their history. But they give money to tribes that abuse the LIVING, and have disrespected their own dead via Tribal Disenrollment

ELEM, PALA, PECHANGA, PICAYUNE, PINOLEVILLE, SAN PASQUAL and SHINGLE SPRINGS among the recipients of grants of $50,000 or more in order to "locate and preserve artifacts".  We just wrote about Pechanga usurping the Gabrieleno Tongva people's ancestor's remains.    Perhaps these disenrolling tribes should worry about preserving their most valuable resource--their Indian PEOPLE--first. It wouldn't take much time, energy, or money to locate the thousands of living indian people, from whom their corrupt tribal governments have stolen their very birthright through disenrollment and moratoriums.  BONES shouldn't be more important than people

Here is a list of disenrolling tribes at the amounts our government granted:

INTIMIDATION and STALKING of NATIVE AMERICAN Women at NOOKSACK Tribe, By the POLICE CHIEF?

Hey, let me do a little target practice around your house. Rather than a firing range like all responsible gun owners.   The NRA would want you to be responsible, the Nooksack Tribe, apparently is okay with shooting guns around homes, as long as it's the home of someone suing their police.

Muscogee Creek Freedmen Lawsuit DROPPED by Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly

A federal judge has rejected a lawsuit from the descendants of black slaves who were once owned by members of the Muscogee Creek Nation and who are seeking citizenship in the tribe, saying that they should go through the tribe’s own legal process first.

The Tulsa World reports that U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly in Washington, D.C., dismissed the Muscogee Creek freedmen descendants’ lawsuit this week seeking citizenship in the Creek Nation.
The Okmulgee-based tribe is the fourth largest in the country, with over 86,000 enrolled citizens.
The descendants filed a lawsuit last July against the Creek Nation and the U.S. Department of the Interior seeking full tribal citizenship and to have the tribe’s constitution declared in violation of the Treaty of 1866.
The Cherokee Nation faced a similar lawsuit that was resolved (OP: With a RESOUNDING victory in COURT) last year.
Cherokee Freedmen Attorney Jon Velie had this to say on his Facebook page:

The Cherokee Freedmen and Seminole Freedmen cases were resounding decisions with very strong language affirming Freedmen citizens equality in their respective Tribes. This case was dismissed on a technicality.
