               The Continent of North & South America is NOT a New World, as Europeans had falsely claimed.


               Indigenous native people of different tribes had been living on it for many many generations.


               Their forebears had persevered through thick and thin on their beloved land.


               [They do not call Europe a new world and claim the ownership of Europe.]

   It is about time that every household in America should [color=#1c7dff !important][backcolor=transparent !important]start paying rent & loyalties to

Native people who had given up way too much and [color=#1c7dff !important][backcolor=transparent !important]receive too little in return for their land and

resources on it , for the past 500 years or so.



The following ABC News was reported on YAHOO on Oct 13, 2011 -

   Little Tashina Iron Horse, is 6 years old, a chatty and vivacious first grader, and she tells us she wants Justin Bieber to be her boyfriend. If she could, she’d ask President Obama for “Fresh water…and bubble gum…and a backpack.” She wants to grow up to be a police officer, a career choice inspired by her mother Bobbie, who works long hours as a security guard.

Tashina lives on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where most of the 30,000 to 40,000 residents identify as Oglala Lakota Sioux and boast of a rich cultural [color=#1c7dff !important][backcolor=transparent !important]history and deep-seated spirituality. Located in the southwest corner of South Dakota, Pine Ridge is one of the 565 federally recognized Indian Nations in the United States. It is also one of the poorest.

Pine Ridge residents live amid poverty that rivals that of the third world. Forty-seven percent of the Pine Ridge population lives below the federal poverty level, 65 percent to 80 percent of the adults are unemployed, and rampant alcoholism and an obesity epidemic combine with underfunded schools to make it a rough place to grow up. Tashina lives in government housing in Manderson, 30 minutes north of downtown Pine Ridge. She lives with her grandmother, parents, siblings and uncles – sometimes up to 19 people live in the three-bedroom house, which has seen better days.

In the decades following President John F. Kennedy’s pledge to fund public housing projects on American Indian reservations, a construction boom began in Pine Ridge. Today, most of these units built in the 1970s and 1980s are in varying degrees of disrepair – a result, critics say, of steep cuts to the Housing and Urban Development budget made by President Ronald Reagan in the 1980s. Public housing dollars today are largely spent battling black mold in reservation housing rather than constructing new homes.

Amid the despair, there are youth across the reservation — like Tashina — who are breaking through the hopelessness with huge dreams and powerful stories. So that she can be a competitive dancer at the pow wows, Tashina sports beautifully hand-crafted outfits made by her Uncle Matthew. Matthew is a senior in high school who lovingly hand-sews and beads Tashina’s pow wow regalia: shawls, moccasins, hair pieces, and [color=#1c7dff !important][backcolor=transparent !important]dresses. At the pow wows, Matthew is constantly at Tashina’s side: practicing with her and helping her get into costume.

I very wise comedian, Pat Paulsen, once said:
"All the problems we face in the United States today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy
on the part of the American Indian."

""Saved the Americas for the Europeans""
So you are in favor of slaughtering a native people as long as those doing the slaughtering are Europeans.
We all knew that already anyway.
