Found this interesting in my research on the topic. Eagerly awaiting the outcome.

Supreme Court: Should Eastern Oklahoma Be Considered An Indian Reservation? (NPR)



Other interesting articles on the topic of returning Native American lands:

In Tribe v. State Cases, Supreme Court Shifts Support to Native Americans (Governing)

Returning Stolen Land to Native Tribes, One Lot at a Time (Civil Eats)

The US government should cede territory back to Native Americans (The Guardian)


Great-


Let's start with your house.


Libs are always generous with things they don't own.

Sounds like a big government proponent.
I’ve been through many reservations. Wards of the land. Yeah right, they are garbage dumps. I wouldn’t house hogs there.

I'm a libertarian and we, as Americans, do own it. Approximately 640 million acres of BLM land.

Again, your judgment of them doesn't matter unless you're a proponent of big government.

It's about liberty.

Judgement? Just pure observation.

So you're for government owning the land just because you don't like what folks put on private property?

Gotcha. Big government lover.

Natives suffered a 90% small pox die-off in a single generation. Once that happened they had no chance at militarily repelling Europeans and they knew it. That's why the would agree to obvious bad deals and kept moving west. Had there been no small pox die off it would have been a situation like Africa, with a few Europeans living surrounded by natives.

Don't confuse the big-government land hoarding lovers with historical facts.

I agree somewhat about the problem solving. The idea of returning land stolen by deceit to relatives of those still living is a great idea within reason. BLM Land next to Reservations and unused should be returned.
