Most Native Americans in Oklahoma are on some other Native American's land. Most Natives there don't go back past the last 150 years.

And they can't mess up the land any worse than the current inhabitants.

A thing is we have to prove certain areas of land was stolen from Native Americans. Some might have been sold to the U.S. government. Now whether or not it was sold by free will or because of pressure is another story.

Typical of *******s wanting to proliferate a problem rather than actually fix anything.

There is a federal law in place that says tribal land can't be developed unless all plot holders and descendants can be traced, so that everyone gets paid.

In my area this law has made much of the land all but useless because that tracing is an impossible task. It can't be developed. How about fix the law that is preventing them from using land that is already theirs?

Do you stand for absolute property rights?

If so... then you know very well that no whitey can legitimately own land in North America.

Definition of immigrant

: one that immigrates: such as
a : a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence

Speak for yourself. I am the 13th generation born here in the new world since my ancestors arrived. Therefore, I am not an immigrant.
