EPA Takes Entire Town Away From Wyoming and Gives it to the Indians…Disenfranchises American Citizens

Photo22a

Obama’s EPA has declared that the city of Riverton, Wyoming, with over 10,000 people is no longer part of the United States and have given it to the Indians.  In essence, all Americans living in Riverton are no longer living in the United States and are not eligible for state or federal services.  They can also be tossed off land they bought and paid for since their deeds do not have to be recognized by the Indians.  The Indians have argued for years that they should get full ownership of 1 million more acres of land because it should be part of their reservation.

The problem is that congress decided the borders in legislation passed in 1905.  If this ruling is allowed to stand, the EPA can arbitrarily take land away from its owners and give it to anyone they choose to.  The governor of Wyoming, Matt Mead is threatening to refuse to recognize the EPA’a authority.

“My deep concern is about an administrative agency of the federal government altering a state’s boundary and going against over 100 years of history and law.  This should be a concern to all citizens because, if the EPA can unilaterally take land away from a state, where will it stop?”

The Wyoming delegation to congress has sent a letter to the EPA demanding they reverse their decision.  All parties agree the final decision must be made in the federal courts.

It is unclear whether the EPA is considering turning over all 1 million acres the Indians are requesting.

Sen. Leland Christensen argues:

“This is an alarming action when you have a federal agency step in and start to undo congressional acts that has really been our history for 108 years … with the stroke of a pen without talking to the biggest groups impacted, and that would be the city of Riverton and the state of Wyoming.”

The EPA refuses to comment on their decision.

    Of course this happens in a conservative state first. Wouldn’t want to lose all those Dem votes if they did it in a blue state, right?

  • Norm Koch

    This is like C.H.I.P.S. that congress passed right before Obamacare to test the waters. If they are allowed to set this precedent look forward to parts of the South West being turned over to Mexico.

    actuality the Native Americans was here first until they trusted the American government !!

    Looks like Gangster Politics to me. Perhaps a little payback for recalling to pro gun control Democrats? Ya, I think so…

  • Jarin Jorgensen

    This won’t bode well for the Natives or the EPA. I been the Riverton, WY and there is a underlying tension between the two factions ( natives and whites). Gonna be blood in the streets if Wyoming doesn’t put a stop to this immediately.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    So you are willing to move out 10,000 pissed off (white) Wyoming people? Many of them are cowboys, conservative, hate the federal govt, very pro-gun rights, armed to the teeth, etc. Who is willing to enforce that law and move the 10000 non-American Indians off the lands there? What? White cops? Black cops? What about those people who are part American Indian? Does only part of their land get taken away?

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    Exactly! How do the federal agents plan on dealing with the local police, sheriffs, state agents, state militias, Wyoming National Guard, and pissed off armed citizens? What about those citizens there who are part American Indian? Does only part of them get the services and land then?

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    Parts of the SW are already going back to Mexico; California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, etc. Even if TX secedes and breaks away, they will deal with lots of Mexicans there and Mexico.

  • Bill Berger

    Story sounds a bit fishy, to me.

  • Jack

    Biggest slaughter of human life occurred when Europeans came to America.Man,woman and child were killed.Its like a robber breaking into your house and killing your family,then deciding to live there.

  • Mickie Metzger

  • Chris Paganelli

    I don’t understand…………….isn’t that what you all did to the Native Americans first? I thought then adage was turnabout is fair play.

  • justathought22

    If I remember correctly you idiot we were no alive at that time and NO WE did not take the land. However you would be correct if you stated that people hundreds of years ago took their land and now some people feel we should give it back. So when are you leaving to go back you your ancestors land? Oh and by the way if you are English, French, Russian, German, etc. I was wondering if you were going to divide yourself up to accomplish going home? Idiot.

  • Yanksta

    Jack,
    While slaughter certainly occurred when Europeans came to America, it was not the biggest, nor was it the only time men, women, and children were killed. You need to look at countries that devolved to communism – there you will find the largest wholesale slaughters. What happened in America, while tragic, was not the worst case, not even close. And to suggest it was is revisionist history blather.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    Another dumbass self-hating white man. Why don’t you give your house to American Indians if you feel so bad? What do white people today have to do with what happened 100 years ago or more? If there was a law kicking out nonwhites, people like you would complain, but all of a sudden when it’s done to whites today that is ok?

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    American Indians were fighting with each other before we got here, stealing lands from other tribes. If the American Indians dislike us so much, then they need to stop driving cars, using electricity, asking for money from the govt, stop taking our money, stop using our technology, etc.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    I would love to see whites today stand up and fight. I’m sick and tired of whites always caving in, telling blacks and Indians how sorry they feel, always putting up with these BS rules that are thrown at us all the while these people and agencies hate us and want us dead.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    Actually, the biggest slaughter was Jewish-created communism; killed over 100 million people. Then Spain for 700 years was ran by Muslims. Eastern Europe was almost wiped out entirely by Asiatic invaders (Mongols, Huns, etc). Whatever bad things whites have done, other races have done bad things to us as well. Besides, quite whining about white people while using white technology. It makes you look stupid.

  • rick blankenship

    I have seen some pretty stupid shit come out of D.C. but this really takes the cake. i have indian blood running threw my veins .but why do they just say this area. by all rights this was indian land before the government started killing them off for trying to keep it. so is not the entire U.S.A. not once owned by the indians. lets give them Washington D.C. and watch the indians give it back. why? they don’t want to live in a shit hole either

  • Doug Going

    Cuff em and stuff em!

  • Michael Lawrence

    No where in the constitution is the EPA mentioned. Since this entire agency is unconstitutional, all actions and rules created by this agency are therefore moot because they are also unconstitutional. Abolish this unconstitutional agency.

  • Anna Fabian

    Actually that was in co but ppl we better start doing something fast!
    they arealso trying to take our water too!
    this is nazi crap going on!
    get ready…it’s coming to final blows!

  • sorry n shit

    Give? Give? Your kidding me. Indians destroy everything! I know Indians that hate Indians! Why can’t they join society like I’m expected to. Sounds like these people are starting a race war. I don’t wanna hear that we stole there land and they were here first. We all here now and i didnt take sh!t and they never had sh!t so what’s that matter. I’m sure we’d all like to live in the 21st century. Americans are sick of the “poor” card. Were all poor and liberals keep giving money to the wrong people. Native pride is OK but white pride isn’t. Here we go around the oval table of political word play until it goes to court. When are we going to learn to just leave people alone.

  • cd21

    Now they know what the Indians felt like over 100yrs ago. Maybe the govt. should start mass Genocide like they did on the Indian to even the score. Really let you ” white folk” know what it feels like… Problem with you dumbasses is that it only makes sense if it benefits you.

  • Ollie

    rise up, to arms , to arms, the enemy is attacking, hiding under your pillow won’t make them go away!

  • cd21

    Oh, and the last thing any of you pussies want is a fight. Only a quarter of you have the balls to pull the trigger. The targets will shoot back. just because you can hit a paper target doesn’t mean you will be able to hit shit when your down range with skilled killers shooting back. Stop fooling yourselfes. Your not the gun ho commando you think you are. You another fat ass lazy ass fucktard with a gun who watched to many movies… And for the record. Im not a Democrat. Or a republican. I love my guns and own many. I eat red meat and hate Hilary Clinton and Osama and hi monkey looking goon of a wife. Face it, your not killers. and you wont last 10 sec against anyone Obama sends to take what you have. Stick to picketing and protesting in the streets. Or go into hiding. Fucking morons.

  • Patricia Hanthorn

    Another step in the direction of further dividing our country. This will put more people in line to retaliate and start some type of commotion and allow Obama to initiate “Marshal Law” which is a part of his plan/Agenda. Divide and conquer on step at a time. What do you think all those railroad cars with shackles are waiting for in our upper north country? How far will this man take his executive power and his stupidity in order to destroy our country? If Congress does not get their heads out of their behinds we will be in unsettled territory soon.

  • NM_Patriot

    The article doesn’t say they would be “moved out”. They just won’t receive any government aid. They will be better off, I think! And, yeah, the Indians were here first. We are gonna have to come to terms with the fact that we stole the land from them in the first place. Not pretty, but the mess we have to take care of.

  • mhgoats1

    If they really want to press the issue about the past, then inform them that they can all return back across the Bering Strait into Russia. Sounds stupid, but so is this.

    If they force the issue, give them the land, and burn/destroy EVERYTHING that was built by the “white man”!

  • NM_Patriot

    It sounds like you are the one with hate in your heart. Get over it. Also, the whites will lose in a war with pissed off Indians. White people stole the land from under them. That kind of evil does not go unpunished. Prepare for retribution.

  • Patricia Hanthorn

    That is exactly what he wants to happen. One state of his choice to lose control and take care of them. Install Marshal Law. People, we need to unite…plan and all stand our ground against this tyranny. This is our country, not his alone to do as he pleases. We hired him and we all need to call all of our Congressmen and demand he be put in check and held accountable for his actions and his immoral hatred of our Constitution. He cannot pick and chose and change what he wants to without a voice from the people.

  • NM_Patriot

    Is this a “who can be the MOST evil” contest? I don’t think so. Use your reverse psychology some where else … like at the bottom of the ocean. Moron!

  • NM_Patriot

    Picking apart technicalities in order to deflect from replying directly to the meaning of the statement. Smooth move! Other moron!!

  • Jegsimmons

    Anybody here watch squidbillies? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEqHjvlVue0

    “NU UH! NOT THIS LAND RED MAN!!! *BANG BANG BANG* ”

    seriously, how is that legal?
    Most natives had their land sold to whitemen or it got conquered through military action when they decided to raid and kill settlers instead of saying “Hey, bud, you cant stay here, go about 30 miles *that way* , This isn’t your land.”

    History that isn’t white washed is pretty informative.

  • NM_Patriot

    They were definitely better stewards of what God gave them. I say give it all back to them! :)

  • Jegsimmons

    we bought the land, or the indians got uppity and killed some people so the land got conquered as a military action.

    no where has land ever just been stolen under the US.

  • NM_Patriot

    Get angry much? Can’t deal with the truth, can you? You live on stolen land and now want to rationalize it’s theft so you can feel better. You are the moron, because you can’t even see that your own ancestors are to blame. That DOES make you responsible for making it right. And if you think they are gonna make everyone get on boats and leave, well you really are an idiot, aren’t you? So, next time you call someone a moron, it better be the guy in the mirror!

  • F the Left

    Hey shmuck, that means YOU’RE responsible for Bush’s wars, Haliburton, Iran Contra, Watergate and whatever other left wing kook scream of injustice has been perpetrated by the US government. Your great grandchildren will argue it was everyone’s ancestors that did it, even though many were opposed. So lump yourself in a generality all day long, you’re just as bad as your worthless ancestors too big shot.

  • NM_Patriot

    Whit (or any other “race”) pride is fine, as long as you aren’t putting others down while being “prideful”. You don’t want to hear certain things because they are both true and wrong, and you want to hide from that. Too bad. You can’t. You will have to face what your ancestors did to other people;s ancestors. That is the way of life. You cannot run from what your ancestors did. Now, will the whole country be given to the “Indians”? I hardly think so, and even if it was, we will all simply have to move on from here. But, accepting the wrongs of the people in our collective past, and doing what we can to right them, is the only way to go..

  • F the Left

    It’s not called reverse psychology dimwit, it’s called FACTS. Scared as you may be of the truth, that doesn’t change the facts. Keep wetting your pants over the “injustices” committed by European males only though, by all means.

  • F the Left

    Hey guy, I got a news flash for you…everyone else here thinks YOU’RE the moron. You’re a finger wagging left wing nutcase, we all see it, we all know it. So what you say is irrelevant. Facts are facts. You don’t like facts and truth, it messes up your lame misinformed narrow opinion. How about you just shut up for a while and let the adults here enjoy a meaningful discussion and debate over the facts. Run along now, Oblamer servant.

  • linlin

    What the F? So now 10,000 people are no longer able to live in their own property and are no longer American Citizens. Disgusting

  • F the Left

    You are a clueless mental case if you think the American Indians will defeat our military. Utterly clueless.

  • kimberpackinmama

    Does your small mind really think the people of Fremont County who have paid for their property legally are just going to roll over and play dead to the Indians- you better wake the hell up because that shit aint happening! I WILL STAND AND DEFEND WHAT I HAVE PAID FOR and I don’t give a shit if you are , red, black, brown, white or purple! The EPA has no idea the can of worms they just opened and it may not end pretty for the greedy who have more damn money than most tribes in the United States they just choose not to share with their own people!

  • MerlinMedic

    I doubt that the EPA has the statutory authority to make such a decision; if they do then Congress needs to take back that authority since it is being misused. Remember: the EPA is an agency, they can only make regulations based on the power that Congress gives them.

  • kimberpackinmama

    Lets give yours back to them or are you a squatter too who wishes to reap the benefits of what others have paid for-

  • kimberpackinmama

    Got them ready!!!!

  • F the Left

    “we”? Who’s “we” tough guy. What are you gonna do, you gonna personally go door to door to every homeowner losing their land and tell them to get out? Love to see you try you pansy. Just go do it, let us know how that turned out. My guess is your family will be the only ones cleaning up a mess that used to be you.

  • kimberpackinmama

    NM_Patriot- We didn’t steel shit from the Indians- they were paid and are paid every damn month. I promise your stupidity- if the EPA doesn’t fix this there will be blood shed and the whites will win and you can be the first to stand in front of my gun because they will not take what I own EVER!!!!

  • Richie

    this is the start of the end of the EPA FUCK YOU OBAMA

  • J

    Lol, sucks when the land grabbing and displacement from one’s home happens the other way, doesn’t it? How dare those Indians who’s ancestors have lived on this land for generations long before those Europeans ever showed up get given some of the land back. The nerve of those lowly Native Americans getting what they obviously never should have had because people of European decent are far more deserving. too bad I don’t have a sarcasm font because I’m sure this is getting lost on some people.

  • kimberpackinmama

    cd21- Do you live in Fremont County? Are the thoughts of your future being help in the hands of strangers and the government? If it all comes down to it, are you going to give up the land you own? Tell your kids they have to move out of the house they have grown up in to give it to some loser who doesn’t have to pay for your house? OR ARE YOU YET ANOTHER LOSER WHO HAS NOTHING IN HOPE OF REAPING BENEFITS OFF THOSE OF US WHO WILL LOSE OUT IF THIS MESS IS UPHELD? I am sure you are a coward who will spout this stuff and won’t answer a single one of these questions honestly because it has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with you!

  • edster48

    Well, if they can’t receive federal services, do they still have to pay taxes? I sure wouldn’t .

  • Trish Thorpe

    As a Riverton, Wyoming BORN and RAISED, I live and will remain living here.

    Technically it belongs to the reservation anyway. Treaty agreement expired years ago (MUCH LIKE AN EXPIRED RENTAL LEASE), which would have gave land BACK to the tribe, but Riverton wont give land back. The “best compromise” reached is that BIA is PART of the police force in Riverton …

    The tribe is trying for better air quality, and that would NORMALLY INCLUDE within reach of boundaries, JUST LIKE IN A CITY. Air does not STOP simply because there is an invisible line.

    Riverton HAPPENS to be IN that “cross-hairs” boundary since it is a SMALL TOWN SMACK DAB in MIDDLE OF RESERVATION.

    EPA AGREED, reservation should be allowed standard control within area to BETTER THE AIR. Now all these people in uproar because they are trying TO BETTER SOMETHING

  • J

    paid for with the blood of the people that were already there you mean? because that was the price of that land. the Indians were already on the land, using it properly and in balance with nature, when the Europeans came over and forced them off of it. there were no payments made to these people, no exchange of monies, products or services. just simple “hey, we’re here, we claim this as ours because we have guns and you don’t. leave or die.” it is too bad that some may lose money because the government should have compensated the townsfolk for their losses, but don’t act like the Indians shouldn’t be considered the rightful owners of the land to begin with.

  • J

    if Texas ever secedes there won’t be a problem with Mexicans I can assure you. Texas is being hamstrung by the Federal government when it comes to dealing with illegal crossings and without any more ties to the US because of a secession then Texas will deal with the “problem” with extreme prejudice. as a Texan i can assure you this will be the case.

  • wyo_citz

    just attack at the end of the month after they get their GOVT, check and they are all drunk lmfao

  • pjsolarz

    Just another reason to disolve the EPA. When the shutdown happened, 9 out of 10 EPA workers were furloughed as they were considered “non-essential workers” If they are non-essential, why are we paying them?

  • PissedOfFremontCounty

    I live in Riverton and I will die before I give my property to Indians, we pay for all of there health care we babysit all of them a majority of them are drunks and overpopulate are jails.

  • Wolf

    Again, I think people are starting to read way too much into this. Basically the EPA is just saying that in studying the effect of air pollution on the reservation, they are taking into consideration the area of a 50 mile radius around the reservation for their study, which includes Riverton and a couple other towns. They are not saying that Riverton is part of the reservation because that encompasses a legal claim and they don’t have the authority to make that claim.

  • sherry1053

    Better get ready for a fight with the EPA looks like they want to take all the land..aferall they can give it to whoever they want..probably the muslim brotherhood.

  • marty_92040

    Where are you from NM_Patriot? What you are saying is that our fore fathers should have given England back the USA after we defeated them in the American Revolution. Last time I looked in Motana at the battle of Little Big Horn (Custers last stand) the Native Americans were fighting also. This is the problem with our country right now…no one knows how to put there differences aside to see what the government is making us into a communist state. My wife takes care of a couple from Hungary that say we are well on our way to the Communist States of America. This proves it by the EPA telling people they must do what I say. What does the Environmental Protection Agency have to do with what boundries we must follow? People take a look around to see what really is happening. it is time to unite before it is to late.

  • Julius Lovell

    all the states have to do is not recognize the EPA as having the same power as congress, where did the epa get such power, how does it operate within the constitution, how does it create laws without congress ????, what the hell is going one here, since when can an agency create laws without congress voting on them.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    If the town is no longer under ‘federal or state control’ then that means the whites living there don’t have to follow federal anti-discrimination laws, right? That means if a group of good ole boys there want to go out and harm Indians, blacks or gays that they can’t be prosecuted since they are no longer under ‘federal’ control right? The town is 80% white, 20% nonwhite, half of the nonwhite population is American Indian. Do they really think they’re going to take on 8000 people who are pissed off and angry with how things are going and are sick of being persecuted because they have white skin? The American Indians would get their asses handed to them again by angry white men, just as their ancestors were.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    So YOU stole land from people, NM Patriot? I’m sorry, but I’m sick of self-righteous self-hating whites like you. Always lecturing to other whites how bad we are, yet you aren’t willing to pay for your own guilt. If whites being here was bad, then that means everything that came after 1500 should be gone, right? No more money, no cars, no planes, no buildings, no houses, no paved streets, no govt handouts, no phones, etc. Right?

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    I agree, FtheLeft. I’m sick of these self-hating whites. In fact, I hate them FAR more than I do nonwhites who hate whites. These self-hating whites are the worst. They take our money and give it to these parasites. until I see these self-hating whites give their house to an Indian or give their job to a Mexican or give up all their money to a black person, they can just STFU.

  • politicstick

    Check “Project 60″

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    So what? Russians were slaughtered by Genghis Khan (who was of Asiatic descent as Native American Indians were) during the 12th Century. So are the Indians going to apologize for what their ancestors did to the Russians, centuries before whites came here? If they try to displace the whites in Wyoming they will get their asses handed to them. Yeah, you’re going to go knock on 8000 white people’s doors and force them to leave? Seriously? Anti-whites like you have no logic. May you get killed by diversity!

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    I don’t give a shit if I’m full of ‘hate.’ If we didn’t have ‘hate’ we wouldn’t have destroyed the British Army. If Charles Martel was not ‘full of hate’ he wouldn’t have destroyed the Muslim armies and France would have fell to Islam in 732 AD. Funny, you are against ‘hate’ yet you wants to be punished. So it’s ‘hate’ when I speak in favor of the white race, yet it’s love when you advocate vengenance against whites? If you’re a white person, you’re stupid. These nonwhites will devour you when they get the upper hand. And if you’re not white, you better know the European race has survived centuries of wars, genocides, diseases, we’ve created the most powerful empires throughout history as well as destroying the most powerful empires throughout history. I will leave you with Rudyard Kipling’s poem:

    THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
    by
    Rudyard Kipling

    It was not part of their blood,
    It came to
    them very late,
    With long arrears to make good,
    When the Saxon began to
    hate.

    They were not easily moved,
    They were icy — willing to
    wait
    Till every count should be proved,
    Ere the Saxon began to
    hate.

    Their voices were even and low.
    Their eyes were level and
    straight.
    There was neither sign nor show
    When the Saxon began to
    hate.

    It was not preached to the crowd.
    It was not taught by the
    state.
    No man spoke it aloud
    When the Saxon began to hate.

    It was
    not suddenly bred.
    It will not swiftly abate.
    Through the chilled years
    ahead,
    When Time shall count from the date
    That the Saxon began to
    hate.

    How can the EPA give away something that they don’t own? They don’t have the authority to do this and they need to be made aware of that!

  • Mike

    The Feds are the ONLY police that can go on the Reservation other than tribal police. All reservations fall under FEDERAL LAW and Federal Law enforcement. This article has a lot wrong with it, makes you wonder if it’s true or not. What this would actually do is take the STATE, County and city police off the job and put the Feds in charge. Property rights should not be affected, but tribal restrictions on who can purchase would severely impact resale values of all properties and anyone wanting to sell their property would probably get pennies on the dollar, with the indians being the likely new owners. Additionally, jobs would become scarce for whites, as there are no laws that say indians have to hire outside the tribes. you see this is every indian casino in America as it is.

  • Brad

    The first people in North America were those who crossed the Bering Strait in PREHISTORIC times …came from Eurasia.. so dont give 2 craps about the Indians here first crap…it was later settled by the Spanish… so until we became “civilized” and i use that term loosely, it was a free for all…and guess who won…if ya’ll wanna have a free for all again i’m game,,, i’ll go back to the good ole days of cowboys and indians, just hand me a time machine, its survival of the ffittest, always has been and always will be no matter how ya look at it..

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    So by your logic, when my car was stolen ten years ago,I should hold the family and children of the man who stole my car, right? If whites need to apologize for bad things they did in the past, then I think muslims should apologize for the brutal 700-year-old Islamic rule of Spain from 700 to 1450 AD. I think the Mongols should apologize to the Russians for the fact Genghis Khan and Attila the Hun almost wiped out the European people when they pillaged and raided parts of Europe. I think the French and Romans should apologize to my British ancestors for the fact they invaded and ruled Britian at one point in history.

    Seriously, do you honestly think if we whites keep apologizing and giving things to blacks and other nonwhites that they’ll stop demanding? Look at how hateful blacks are since Obama has gotten in power. For 50 years now, whites have given blacks affirmative action, welfare, Section 8 housing, we have hate crime laws that protect blacks, we have had a lot of wealthy blacks since the 1960s, etc. Yet we have an increase of black on white violence, we have blacks in power using their power to attack whites. Are you honestly going to tell me that blacks are going to stop demanding things from whites and will stop attacking us?

  • animalaura

    AND THAT MAJOR HIGHWAY that goes through Riverton?? I guess it can be a toll road now. AND… the people who work or run a business in Riverton?? I guess they don’t have to pay taxes to the feds anymore. No federal income tax?

    I’d check that surrounding area for Oil and Gas production, if the land in the town and surrounding it was given back to a tribe, they own the mineral rights….. so the ranchers, farmers and citizens will be loosing royalty checks….. its a reach around err favor for someone

  • ConcernedRivertonCitizen

    Keyword: “were”. I’m from Riverton, WY and I can guarantee you that if the land is given back to the Indians in Riverton or anywhere else, nothing is going to happen. When the majority of Indians have nicer cars than their dwelling place and are drunk in city park and get their sustenance from gas stations, they won’t be good stewards anymore. “Us Whites” (I’m part cherokee) have done far greater to the land in development and advancement than the Indians, whom only collect on royalties because of such heritage and sit home on their lazy asses! I’m all for Indians given equal position in life, but such reservations have only restricted said Indians from doing so. I know a few who have worked hard and made a difference, but there are so many more who haven’t. Gov’t get out of our lives! If you really want to be helpful, hit the reset button!

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    Who cares? How do you think various indian tribes felt when another tribe displaced them? How do you think the Spanish felt after being under 600 years of Islamic rule? How do you think the Russians and Ukrainains felt after being under communist rule? How you think the Brits felt when they were invaded by the Romans and the French? How do you think the Chinese felt when they were invaded by the Japanese Army?

    Why is it that only whites need to pay for what their ancestors did, yet I never hear people like you suggest the other groups I mentioned be held accountable? Besides, do you really think it’s wise to go knock on 10000 doors in Riverton, WY and force each one of those people to leave? Even if a majority of those residents were stupid enough to give in, what are you going to do with them all? Where are you going to take them all? You will be responsible for housing and feeding them. Do you think lots of cops and state police will put up with that?

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    For someone who claims they can deal with the truth, when I pointed out wrong done to Europeans, you got all angry and hissy with me.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    The British govt during the revolution was arming the Indians to fight us and were giving them benefits to help fight the white colonists here. The govt is using blacks and Indians to pit them against whites and keep us fighting, but these people like NM_Patriot are too stupid to see that.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    It only takes a small amount of dedicated people to fight and win. Only 3% of the people here took up arms against the British Army during the revolution. it took only 4000 Germans to destroy the powerful Roman Army of 20000 when they came invading Germany in 9AD. It took only 8000 Frenchmen to destroy 50000 Muslims during the Siege of Malta. It took only 200 British men to defeat 3000 Zulu African warriors. It took only 300 South African whites to defeat 10000 Zulu warriors during the Blood River battle in 1838.

    People are waking up to the anti-white agenda and the tyranny growing. That’s why people flood gun shows coming out with ammo and weapons when I go there. There are more states wanting to break away. People are pissed off with a lot of stuff. You back even the nicest person into a corner and they, too, will strike at you.

  • Scott Snoopy

    And who is going to enforce their will? There are military who won’t do it. There are national guard troops who won’t obey with the orders. There are plenty of local cops and state cops that would fight the feds is they came in to do this. I see another civil war or revolution starting soon. Things are getting worse all the time and people are growing more angry at each other all the time.

  • farrightextreme

    Crazy shyt has to stop.

  • Fred Pyro

    But, if this did happen, and the current land owners worked out a deal with the Indians to stay, does that mean they no longer have to pay, social security tax, income tax, property tax, sales tax, etc…??? This could be a benefit for most involved if that would be the case.

  • be-wildered – be-wise

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    So if you’re not an American Indian, will you give your property to them? Are you willing to knock on every white person’s door and kick them out (without getting your ass shot in the process)? The whites kicked their asses before and they’ll do it again. I love how anti-white bigots not only don’t see their irony, but how arrogant they are. Your hatred of whites clouds your judgement.

  • Rain

    This article jumps to conclusions. None of what you are saying is legally true. This decision impacts only federal funding from the EPA for the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone. There are two Tribes here. Not just “Indians” as you put it. Check your facts and get them right. No one is being denied benefits or being told to leave the land.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    That means 10000 people don’t have to pay taxes or be at the whim anymore of the US govt anymore then,right? How are 2000 Indians going to defeat 8000 whites living in that town?

  • Wyomingite

    This isn’t true.

  • Rain

    This decision merely allows us to express tribal sovereignty and monitor our own air quality. It does not effect any physical land boundaries. Nor does it give any land back to the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone. That issue has been decided in court over 100 years ago. Again check your facts before you put out false news reports that promote fear and violence against a group of people.

  • JonathanSurat

    I am not approving of the government ‘giving’ Riverton to the reservation. HOWEVER, how do you think we claimed the land? As mentioned in the last paragraph, “with the stroke of a pen” the land belonged to the immigrants. However, if the GOVERNMENT owes them land, it should be BLM property, not private property. There are SO many problems with government we should wipe the slate clean and start over.

  • David Young

    It’s about time that the Native Americans got some of their land back.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    Having a black president has seem to bring out more hatred and division among people than before we had one. Or maybe it’s because of social media that we are more aware of how deep the divide is.

  • be-wildered – be-wise

    EPA Environmental Protection Agency … not sure where they think they get the authority to ‘even’ do this. What happened to the BLM? They’re always messing with people’s property. But then, no one but the Congress has the legal authority to change something that Congress has decided . Yes, it’s getting very creepy. It kind of reminds of the old castles, moats and peasant times. I wonder if the “Secretaries,” “czars” or whatever they’re called have jousting tournaments to determine who gets to disobey the next law?

  • straightnative

    LOL this article is a bunch of bullcrap, who ever wrote this article lacks any knowledge of what is really going on here in Riverton!! The tribes are not seeking to take Riverton from anyone, even if the ruling is to go in favor of the tribes! One it changes nothing for the residents of Riverton who are not tribal members! Life goes on as it did before the ruling!! Those who have purchased land within the said boundary keep the land and still pay their taxes like anyone else. Bogus for this article to state that people will be kicked off of their paid land….that is a lie and this whole article is a lie!! Please don’t buy what this editor is trying to sell and create for it is all bogus!! I am an enrolled member of the Northern Arapaho Tribe!!

  • janineJ

    Wyoming when it comes to presidential elections always votes Republican…regardless of how the people voted. that is what is being referred to.

  • Rivercity Rezident

    That’s because it is, Bill. I live in Riverton. This ruling by the EPA is in response to a petition by the tribe to have Riverton included as part of the reservation ONLY for purposes of enforcement of the Clean Air Act. I understand why they made the petition; it’s to their benefit. A challenge to the ruling has been made by the Wyoming State Attorney General’s office. This issue will be resolved in the courts, and for the time being it is business as usual. No one is trying to take my home away. The real issue is that a federal agency is attempting to overstep its authority (as happens regardless of who is in office). It’s being dealt with. So please, everybody else calm the f*ck down. We got this.

  • sawa ryki

    “This is an alarming action when you have a federal agency
    step in and start to undo congressional acts that has really been our
    history for 108 years … with the stroke of a pen without talking to the
    biggest groups impacted, and that would be the city of Riverton and the
    state of Wyoming.” To this is I say, had your federal government adhered to the original treaties this would not have happened give all the stolen lands back to the natives, honor the treaties

  • deepWyoroots

    Lets think about this for a minute…I lived in Riverton for many years. The reservation already has “non-Natives that own and Farm/Ranch on Indian land right outside of Riverton off of hyw789. They are not being kicked off there land nor is it being taken over.
    Like always everyone is getting there panties in a bunch. If you look at any map it clearly shows that Riverton was part of the original reservation, as well as Lander. Like always in this small town that has far to little to keep their minds occupied (aside from everyone sleeping with everyone else’s spouses) the first thing everyone wants to do is get the guns out and start an unfounded fight on little information. This place as well as many towns in Wyoming…being from there born and raised, love to push the next fight out, and blow everything so far out of proportion. This is what happens when you have far to many idle country folk sitting in the local bar with nothing else to do.
    All of you need to get a grip and do some research…do you really think the tribes are going to give up the revenue they are going to get from non-native land owners?!? Oh, but then the piss and moan will be that you don’t want to pay to support the Indians. Yet you will pay to support the corrupt and shady city and county government…what a joke. Wyoming please get your head out of your a$$.

  • Mark

    There can be a good side to this. People who are not enrolled will not have to pay taxes on their property, or businesses. The white people of this town have helped build what it is today. There are ties with the native people and as far as us kicking off the people i highly disagree. The federal government on the reservation cant charge a non-enrolled member with a crime. Other then murder, misdemeanors are sent to the sheriffs department, where the case will he dismissed cause the sheriffs department have no authority on tribal law. For the people who threaten with firearms, they need to sign a lease agreement with the tribes which will cost less then a state or city lease. The tribes dont have the people or an understanding of how to keep any of the businesses in riverton. A peaceful resolution can come about if the people of riverton as well as the two tribes can come to a biased agreement. Then in time this may be one of the subjects that gets pushed aside, buried, and forgotten about.

    Jobs will never become scarce for whites, even if the Indians own all the land this town sits on, simply because of the fact that Indians don’t work and they don’t want to work. The Wind River Indian Reservation has a 97% unemployment rate. If white people didn’t work in this town, no matter who “owned” it, it would become a ghost town in less than six months.

    NOT GIVING THE TOWN, just allowing air quality control!

    “… clarified that at issue to the state is not that the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone Tribes would *** have a say in air quality matters within a 50 mile radius of the exterior boundaries,*** but that the boundaries included lands that the state has owned and managed for more than 100 years. Because EPA’s ruling put Riverton inside the boundaries of the reservation, the tribes could hypothetically have direct regulatory authority on air quality issues and projects in the town.”

    Follow legal means through the courts and work together to do it. Not suggesting appeasement entreaties with the EPA or the government.

It appears the EPA did not take into consideration the overall picture, the nature of the politics.

    The problem with this sort of power-grab (e.g., by the EPA) is that there isn’t any penalty to the grabber if he loses. There must be.

That’s the only penalty that the crypto communists in the federal government will understand.

If this particular story is false, then it is, nonetheless, a trial balloon – a test to see how strong the reaction would be if it were done for real. Just recollect that nobody in 1950 would have believed that the United States would ever have tyrannical laws such as the Patriot Act or NDAA or those confiscatory and invasive Executive Orders.

  • stan25

    As a resident in the Riverton Wyo area, the story is true. The Obama EPA has deemed that the white people here have no rights. Don’t look to the Federal District Court in Cheyenne to stop this atrocity, being that one of the judges was appointed to the bench there, by Obama. Her husband is a huge Obama supporter and is the former Governor of the State.

  • Nichole Williams

    I don’t care who was here first or who wasn’t and all that bullshit. This whole thing is bullshit. The people today had NOTHING to do with what happened that long ago. everyone should stop being so fucking greedy and want this and that because their “ancestors” got screwed. the native americans already get a shit ton more help with shit then the whites so why push it? and not all Indians drink and don’t work I have a few native friends who do work who hold their own and are very good people. But Obama is stupid anyways. So who knows exactly what is going to happen. He is just like hitler. and that’s exactly how our times are going to end up here soon. Get Ready for the war.

  • RedLabel

    He didn’t say that “all” Indians don’t work, just “Indians don’t work”. And with an unemployment rate of 97%… that’s pretty accurate. I grew-up in Northern WY with the natives, and now live in MT with Northern Cheyenne and Crow natives. Many just collect their government checks, terrorize the local Walmart, and cycle in and out of the country jail. Native Americans need to clean-up their own back yard if they want to be respected. Cutting-off the eternal state assistance is the ONLY way for this process to actually begin.

  • Let’s discuss like adults

    Human nature is fascinating and so disappointing!

    No, the EPA is not constitutional. Nor is the FAA, FDA, CDC, USPS, and thousands of other agencies. Are there too many? Probably. But the reason our constitution is brilliant is that it allows for our country to grow and change with time. The founding fathers could not have dreamed of the issues and technology we have today. But our government is designed to be able to regulate those things- airline travel, cell phones, internet, etc.

    Even after multiple posts explaining that this article is full of fallacies, people keep going with hate. Instead of a civil discussion about limiting, or not, the power of out government, this is an article full of racism. Many of you aren’t even discussing the original article anymore.

    This article is fear mongering. Plain and simple. Everyone should check out an ACTUAL news article from a news source based in Riverton and Lander Wyoming: http://county10.com/2014/01/06/tribes-legislators-wyoming-attorney-generals-office-talk-future-implications-epa-ruling/

  • Gary Schnabel

    What happens when 65,000 neighbors show up to help the 10,000? You can bet another civil war, that obummer wants to happen. black vs white, mexican vs white, mexican vs black, and all others brought into it. STOP the government. right now the only thing i want to stop/deport is the muslum–islamic bull shit that mooslum barry and mushell are pushing.

  • TheTruth

    Sucks when its happening to you? Get over it, move on, let it go. One day you’ll be dead and it won’t matter. Are you talking about the same water you shyt in and put back into the ground? Natives never did such things until they were forced to live like the nasty black plague infected European minds. Nazis/Hitler based his camps on the native reservations. I laugh at how you sad, ignorant and forgetful you beings function. Smile it’ll all be ok.

  • Brian Pierce

    All I can do is LMAO at this wonder how many dems who voted for Obama live in that town. lol whats next? You can keep your town period. lmao

  • TheTruth

    Hey man with Cherokee blood? Yeah whites did the most development on the land, also destroyed most everything it touches. Typical. And you forget, your government played a large role in obtaining ”your property”, I think they have every right to do what they want with it. Native owned or not. Poor hill bellies tryin to make history but can’t because they forget their own. Smile.

  • CLK

    Ummmmm, I don’t know where you are getting this information but it’s hard to take a person’s word when they use “too” instead of “to”……..

    If the Indians cherished the land they “stole” from each other so great perhaps they could have fought harder or moved on with their lives instead of bitch and moan into eternity about what “could-have, should-have” been. You don’t see Britain’s whining because America declared its freedom and “stole” its land……

    Lets not give them anything. They have been living on the

    worse. It’s time to cut back the free cash, housing and ect and stop apologizing
    for something that was done hundreds of years ago. Germany isn’t paying out,

    go on forever.

    And where did syphilis come from?

  • Cowboy

    Actually the Indians won most of the fights and the government sued for peace not them. The treaties and churches tricked them into submission. They were tough enough to live here without all your high powered and expensive toys and crap and they still survive in spite of being jacked around to this day.

  • Donna S

    As someone living in Riverton I take great offence to the comment made by John M! Sir your comment about the whiskey bottle was insulting and unnecessary. You can have a debate with out disrepecting people.

  • Michael Christy

    Well geez, 108 years is all? That means probably 110 years ago many had immigrated from another country. Indians stealing land? That would be ironic would it not? As for stealing land and resources every one knows who that is. As usual the conservatives are probably making it sound way worse than really is. I am sure the reservation gained some rights to administer some federal contract or something. The conservative are probably running around screaming the sky is falling.

  • Jack

    We are so busy fighting and screwing over each other we don’t recognize who the real enemy is. They will bury us all. Just like the Native American. All that shit is in the past. Get a life look forward.

  • Jeff Fowler

    The gov took it away from the rightful owners the true Americans hundreds of years ago. What is such a big deal about giving it back.

  • CLK

    I do agree they do need to team up and throw Obama out, but the notion that it is, was, and always will be Indian land is preposterous! Many wars have been fought over land, countries taken over, then won back. But Indians still hold such a grudge over what could-have, should-have and would-have been! Get over it already! Yea our ancestors took your ancestors land, but should I pay the price for what my ancestors did? Should I feel guilt if my great uncle were a slave owner, or if my great, great, Grandad farmed land that an Indian tribe one rode upon? NO! If you want land do as we have to and BUY it! Then you could once again own that which you claim was stolen from you………

  • Michael Christy

    You need to really take a history class or two, reading the bible just does not do it. Indians did not lose, you don’t offer treaties to the conquered.

  • TheTruth

    Oh thank you righteous white man! You are our savior just like Jesus. You people like to feel like god huh? Sorry, you are not. When your pitiful short life is over you will see the truth. And you’re right, there would be nothing but millions of creatures and pure water. Yeah we rejected your way of living. Stagnant like the black plague that is still embedded in your diseased DNA. That’s why your race is immune to the aids virus. Nasty creatures if you ask me.

    I am a Native American…and i am white, not a drop of Indian blood in me. I WAS BORN HERE, and so were the 6 generations ahead of me. I live in Riverton, and I have my whole life, i own a home here, my sons were born here. I love Wyoming, I love the mountains and the plains, the rivers and lakes…. the feelings you get when you are standing alone on a high ridge looking out over the vast land, the wind on your face… knowing you belong to that place. that is the best feeling ever. I work hard for what i have and I’ll be damned if anyone is going to take it from me. two wrongs do not make a right.
    there are reservations all over the US…so this will set a precedence for our nation. You probably live closer to a reservation than you think!

  • Friday Christopher J

    theres ALOT of racial comments here. sickens me to be honest! although America is the land of the free home of the brave and i’m proud to call myself an American soldier. a native American in the community in riverton Wyoming/ winr river indian reservation. a member of the great northern Arapaho tribe! as much as I love our country and take pride in wearing the uniform it makes me sick that there is still so much hate in this world towards a color of people. I served with whites blacks Mexicans Australians Nepalese Peruvian. hell practically every race there is. history is written through treaties aswell and the debate about riverton has been there since the town has been created. the 100 year lease was up in 2008 and riverton chose NOT to accept that instead they wanted to fight us. so that’s what we did and we did it legally. in the courts just how it should’ve been done. and well this is a small win for my tribe but in the end its whats right! the immigrant settlers came killed my people and many other tribes people took their land and didn’t think twice and nothing ever happened to them. America is built on stolen freedom. and now that we wonthe city back it in court its a bad thing.. HELL I have my guns to im trained to use them and ill damn sure defend whats mine and whats mine and ours is AMERICA. so reguardless of whats happened atleast my tribes trying to be civil and work things out for the better of the community as a whole! im sure my tribe will make a good decision on the matter but then again we always get treated like shit when we spend our money in the local white owned businsess followed around like we’re stealing something, put down, called names. our money benefits that community aswell…. just sucks to see so much hate.. haha then again shouldn’t be to surprised and all……it is wyoming

    Many battle were fought and won by both sides, but in the end the tribes could not keep what they thought was theirs. Don’t feel bad, Egyptians, Romans, Persians, Jews, Spaniards, Mayans, and pretty much every single group/ethnicity have been through the very thing your ancestors went through. Only thing is they moved on, Indians still woller in self pity instead of moving on and reestablishing themselves.

  • Friday Christopher J

    theres over 10000+ natives on the reservation!!!

  • Maj

    Did you know this story is entirely wrong? LOOOL wow, anything to stir up fear and “left” conspiracies – including making up things. If you don’t know what “Indian Country” means, you should probably read about it – especially how it doesn’t mean anything to non-Indians. FYI, if you live in Riverton and own property, you still have to pay the State your property taxes. Can’t get out of that one.

  • Michael Christy

    It has nothing to do with that, even if Indians were allowed to take back the land, nothing is going to change. Federal laws govern Indian reservations. If the land was given back, the owners would be justly compensated. I am sure this is all conservative rhetoric designed to increase the hate toward American Indians.

  • CLK

    And what would you do with the land? Live in teepees again, wearing loin cloths and killing other tribes? Before you point fingers you best take a look in a calm puddle…….

  • Michael Christy

    What I find amazing, is those that hate American Indians always want to live around them. Why don’t you move away from them, or does that fuel your hatred?

  • 2 ton

    well firts you should call them native americans not indians and second they were there long before you so you should give whats theirs

  • TheTruth

    Do you know how scared you sound white supremacists ? As a native American psychologist what you type is a reflection of your self view. You hate being white from what I can tell. You used ”hate” and ”white” 4 times in one paragraph. Accept you are no longer in power. Get old retire and let go. Its better that way. You’ll see.

  • Maj

    Ma’am – I’m sorry this is completely wrong. Congress passed the Clean Air Act well before President Obama ever took office, in fact, it was President Johnson who signed it into law. You should probably read about it first, do some fact checking and then respond to people like “Citizen” and say “sorry Citizen, you’re just looking for a reason to start shooting people.”

  • Paul Paad

    So if the Indians (Native Americans) are not a part f the United States, then they are not a part of Wyoming. And therefore should not be allowed to receive state or federal benefits and should not be allowed to vote in state or federal elections. Not a citizen? Not eligible to vote. Can’t have it both ways.

  • Greg Goff

    Im native American too. I was born here

  • Maj

    Also – this town is still under “State” control – Indian Country means that Tribal members are exempt from the State’s sales tax, that the Federal police have jurisdiction if there’s a Tribal member involved in a crime, or if a non-Indian commits a crime against a Tribal member.
    People would rather believe the lie – very sad. SMH.

  • CLK

    Don’t take it so bad, whites and blacks have their lazy section, the part that scares me is that it is growing and even doing better than most of us who bust our asses each day!

    Keep up the good work, and hopefully one day we will be able to enjoy the fruits of OUR labor instead of watching the useless do it for us……..

  • Maj

    LOL – that’s not true at all. I’m sorry you think you don’t have rights – I dare you to go commit a “crime” and see where you end up and what kind of “jurisdiction” applies to you. Please don’t hurt anyone – speeding, or shoplifting will do.
    Also, please don’t stop paying your taxes to the STATE either – they will foreclose on you and your property will become the property of the STATE.

  • Ken Diacono

    I’m with Randall Ritchie Sr. we need to unite together against the people/person/government that is doing this to all of us!! It’s not just this land grab its unjust medical insurance being run down our throats, unfair taxation to go with it! The last time this kind of stuff happened there was a revolution. Now we probable can’t go that route,but we sure can vote,we can call our congress reps., senators,heck anyone that will listen and take our country back.Maybe with enough jaw~jacking we could get an impeachment. I don’t know about anyone else but boy does this guy deserve it!!

    well just so you know…they have the BIA …bureau of INDIAN affairs…The IHS which is INDIAN health services.. the live on the Shoshone and Arapaho INDIAN reservation…..You wanna give up your home? I am sure some one 500 years ago owned that land before you!

  • Michael Christy

    You forgot to mention so called Cherokee, the great developments, so I will name a few for you. Does the Exxon Valdez oil spill ring a bell? How about the Gulf of Mexico Dead Zone? What about three mile island? Your stereotyping is at the very least; boring.

  • Maj

    Wow Riverton Citizen – I guess you know every Tribal member on the reservation and can definitely cast these stereotypes. That’s pretty ignorant. Sorry, but you’re wrong – and I hate to tell you this, but as a Riverton citizen, you’ve been living in Indian Country this whole time – the feds just finally said it on paper. Nothing changes for you – unless you commit a crime against a Tribal member – then, the Feds will have jurisdiction over you, and you won’t go to the luxury state prison, you’ll go to “no-chance-of-parole” prison.
    Other than that.. as you were.

  • Maj

    Wow – no, this isn’t true. It’s just not true at all – and kinda ignorant to say property value will go down if an Indian buys property from a white person, don’t you think? The federal police can only go on Trust land – did you know most of Riverton is fee or deeded land? Do you know what that means? It means people still have to pay taxes to the State if they own property. It means the Riverton Police are still going to have jobs. It means that title to property still belongs to the owner who is registered at the County. Amazing things people “want” to believe.

  • maj

    Who do you think is going to “take your property”? LOL The only people who will take your property is the State if you don’t pay your taxes. I think this is an excuse to get all “riled” up. HAHAHA

  • John Campbell

    this entire article is a lie. stop inciting hate you hack!

  • WitchWay

    I shouldn’t think that the EPA has the authority to do such a thing – almost all tranfers of land into Native American hands must be coordinated through the BIA along with the agencies that own title to the land. Since there isn’t an agency that owns the whole town – how could the EPA validly take it without doing a Eminent Domain process in the courts? This doesn’t make sense and much more info is needed.

  • mrparker1

    Yeah by the way, thank you for tobacco.

  • mrparker1

    There were these things called treaties and they shouldn’t be changed now. By the way, I’m part Indian and the only people that use native Americans are tribal leaders when they speak to the media and white liberals.

  • crafte1too

    That fact is that the govt signed a 100 year LEASE for Indian land and then dishonored their bargain! It WAS stolen! The govt didn’t BUY the land! When the pilgrims came to America, they came in peace and the Indians were willing to share until some SOB decided that he didn’t want to share what he could take! Then when the Indians defended themselves they were massacred! And it’s not self pity CLK it’s HONOR. They signed a treaty and a lease and the govt lied, cheated, and stole.

  • Cracker

    Your great gray grandpa’s sold some savvy guy a bunch of land for cheap. Sorry, you don’t deservefree land because of this. And you didn’t personally face any of this shit so you have no fucking room to bitch

  • am

    Not sure who you are referring to when you mention the British (who are thought to have been the first settlers in the British Isles). The Angles/Saxons came to Great Britain many thousands of years later and between them were the Romans. So the British cannot give their country back to the Angles.

    It was the Romans that named the islands Britain over 2000 years ago. The Angles gave their name to what became England (derived from Angleand) long after they originally invaded the Islands in the fifth century. The Picts were in Scotland and if you want to know what happened to them you will need to ask the Irish because the Picts disappeared sometime after the Irish invaded what is now Scotland.

  • Richard Hardcheese
  • Chief Who Cares

    HAHAHA Who really gives a shit? I mean really. If the white people in Riverton WY were good people and could learn to live with the Natives then why worry? The Natives need to get their shit together as well. If you’re white and you’ve ever leased property then the person you leased to refused to give your shit back you’d cry a fucking river too. So white people shut your mouths. Natives don’t fuck it up. Christ people need to worry about their individual lives. White people don’t have it in them to just straight rally up and start a war if they’ve never been in the service. Natives haven’t been in line for too long so that willingness to fight just to fight is still there. Just remember if this all turns out bad then ALL of you can only blame yourselves for how you played the hands you were dealt. Oh and the U.S government offered the treaties so they wouldn’t have to bury anymore precious white boys. We all know how that turned out for your boy Custer. So everyone quit bitching and worry about just getting along yeah?

  • Taxi Jan

    For crying out loud people.. get a grip… Was what happened to the natives initially was immoral and wrong? Yes. This is no different from the campaigns that followed, and the ones that go back centuries .. but unfortunately, it is what it is. Here in the US.. we just bitched enough to get the campaign on Syria stopped.. and more and more people are waking up to the real reasons for all these campaigns (war).. They are not for freedom, they are for power, greed and profit. Can you not see that since the Syrian campaign failed, they need to start something else? They are desperate, their billions in profit from war is suffering. I see this as a tactic to try and start another civil war since they can’t get enough people on board now for another one abroad.. We are all here.. living with what was dealt to us.. put race and culture aside and fight the true enemy.. the corporations of the US who hold the puppet strings on this government. Stop being pissed at our current personal situations and be pissed at who has been and is causing them. We need to focus our anger at the cause.. not at each other.

  • shay

    Why do these discussions always degrade to white vs Indian more than a century past with both sides acting like they were personally wronged? Native Americans were granted this land and that in treaties a century ago, I would guess as part of an integration effort that stalled and never continued. And now, based on obscure and confusing details in those treaties, thousands of taxpaying American citizens may be displaced? Absurd.

  • Muckquashim Hopkins

    bull. that evidence was inconclusive radio-carbon dating as well as genetic tests prove that they were not here longer than the Natives. Much of it is propoganda. New evidence suggests Native have been here closer to 100,000 years Smashing most other “theories”. Theories mind you, are “place holder notions until proper evidence has been provided to substantiate it. I used to work in historic preservation and worked with archaeologist for many years.

    Well I wasn’t one of the first one’s here but neither was your family we of Indian descent have real root’s here not like the one’s that had to leave their country to have a life and land any way that was the past but EPA has no right to do what their are trying to do. that’s like the first blacks that came here they were only to be slaves for 7 years till, and giving 50 acres of land when it was up.
    but a slave did his time and his owner (who was also black) didn’t want him to be free he wanted him to stay on his land but he sold him self to a white man and the black man took the white man to court and made it so blacks could be made to be slaves for an indefinite period of time.

Our government yes the proud United States wrote treaties and made agreements with the Native Americans, and then blatantly lied to them and turned around on their written word (many many times). And if you don’t think it will not happen again think again. Its not even about who it happened to but that IT HAPPENED.

    I live under mixed heritage like most Americans, my Native American ancestors were abused by a government but my grandfather received benefits even though no one took his land from him except his own tribe because he wanted to better his life. Yet when good Germany did worse to my Jewish family they compensated them as much as possible and we moved on. We did not stay in a country demand permanent financial support for all future generations and demand permanent freedom from Government.

    No arguement there, only there was a war and you lost. While we’ve re-built most countries after war, we’ve neglected our own. You are not our enemies and it’s wrong to be angry at you. This is another division created by Obama.

    They didn’t try very hard since there were plenty of Indians left, even after the whites won.

  • marahnatha

    Nice mockery of the cross of Christ. He has no self pity, he’s giving his side and he’s right, we are no better than Obama if we allow him to divide us like he’s divided us on every other front. And yes, the Gov’t did lie to the Indians & broke treatys. We’ve had a whole century since they were pushed onto reservations & aside from a few Christian organizations that provide stoves and build schools, they’ve had litte help. Casinos never help anyone but the House. Tobacco is banned from everywhere but reservations, like that helps a lot.

    Many Indians are still on reservations without water for drinking or agriculture or animals to hunt for food. They can’t “move on.” They are not “wallering in self pity.” These aren’t the entitlement freeloaders. These are people with great dignity and are worthy of respect. They don’t want hand outs, just to have promises kept.

  • Randall Ritchie Sr.

    Marquita I’m not hung up on any thing the Indians of this country were screwed out of every thing they loved and had because some greedy eastern money bags wanted their land for a rail road and the gold and silver. They had not the fire power that the army had if they did it might have went the other way around. The same thing is happen today and now the people of this land better stick together or we might all be speaking a different language. I don’t agree with what’s going on. I was just saying why blame the Indians.

  • marahnatha

    The Gov’t destroyed the black family by welfare, not allowing a man in the house when blacks weren’t given jobs to raise their families. Just look right now, how many people are on food stamps for 2 years & the libs in Congress want to extend it even farther. These programs give you just enough rope to hang yourself. They take away incentive to work & make people dependant, where they want us to be. Look at what we’re doing to each other here. The Indians have nothing to do with our problems, our Gov’t gave them something, knowing people would be diverted by envy, fear and jealousy while they continue to tear us apart from Washington. Please, get a grip. We’re becoming like the Twilight Zne Episode, “The Day the Monsters Came to Main Street,” & Obama looks on & laughs.

  • bill

    this is the biggest bunch of propaganda I have ever heard. the Indians have as much chance of taking back Riverton as they did when they tried to take back the Black Hills in South Dakota. I can’t believe anyone is stupid enough to believe this.

  • Trista Buskohl

    Let’s talk about some of that. What about the Jewish should German children and descendants forever pay for their parent’s participation in the Holocaust? How about those who are descended from both sides; how will we deal with that? How about the Japanese Americans should we still be paying their descendants for the Internment Camps? How about the descendants of slavery? Should a foreign government who conquered a people pay forever for them and their descendants yet let them govern themselves while constantly taking their money?

  • marahnatha

    We prided ourselves in eliminating slavery & having the first black President but we really have done nothing for our Indians, I believe to our shame. I wish Bill Gates or some big manufacturer would build a plant on a reservation & bring jobs, water, grocery stores and other useful busineses that would enable them to build houses, streets or whatever else they wanted, but nobody has done anything like that. The Pueblos certainly weren’t lazy. Chief Joseph used war strategies that our military studies to this day. They have a hritage worthy of respect. Our Gov’t has destroyed their lives just as they have blacks and even Veterans. Look at all the homeless Veterans that go to the VA for help andaren’t given the care they need. We the People, Red & Yellow, Black & White are not enemies. Our Gov’t is and the media that likes to look so open minded, but they were the ones that portrayed Indians as “savages” and “pagans.”

    Would you defend your home against “invaders”? me to. Back when the so called west was won, America was on a terror to Take land, no matter what Native American tribe owned it. The U.S would lie, cheat, and kill any Native regardless of age to obtain the land. Was the land stolen? hell yeah it was. hands down. fuck the legal jargon. oh what a few pennies on the acre, whoopdee do. Anyway, my point is this: Most Native Americans during those terrible times (1850-1930) were honest family oriented people who were connected to the land they grew up on. Aint nothing wrong with that. Now, most Natives today are living with a historical pain in their hearts. Yet, most Natives are working class family oriented type people who are well adapted into the “mainstream” society. And have the highest percentage of U.S. Veterans of any nationality/race in the United States today. So, lets focus on the re-zoning talks and please leave the racist slanders to minimum. Grow up and evolve. Thanks.

  • CEaton

    I think that the Indians have been quiet this whole time over what the Government has “allowed” them to have after they had their land stolen from the settlers. The Black people have been moaning and groaning about everything for yrs wanting equal this and that and they get more then any other race but they still complain. The American Indian was here from the start and they have more rights then anyone else. But having said that, the government has no right taking land away from people just because they decide to this is not a communist country .. at least it was founded by and is suppose to remain a democratic country of freedom. Which we are losing way to many freedoms in the last 5-6 yrs so sad.. I have Native blood mixed with European from the New England area so I am pulled both ways.

    I do believe you need to live around Indians of Today… They have wealth and opportunity galore.Many have casinos and are super wealthy. (and pay no taxes I might add.). They refuse it or abuse it.. IN OKLA , they are treated with priviledge from school they are given everything like basketball and football shoes, school jackets, class rings etc and everyone else pays. They are given Homes, Money, Free rides and tickets to state fairs , and other events in the state. Every child is given a Bicycle for Christmas, and more.. Most Indians move into these homes… Tear out the wood floors and build fires on the ground below..I have seen this.. They burn the house down eventually. They spend their monthly checks, which every indian that has just 1/4 indian blood gets, on booze . They put gas in their cars and run it out an leave it setting just anywhere till the next check comes in. They are given utilities and most anything they want free. Free medical, You name it.. I live in a town where it was mostly Indians and I do not feel sorry for them for they do not want to live better.. I am Indian but do not receive Indian benefits like most people who have some Indian blood.. I have a great great Grandmother that was full blood indian who was given The indian school and property from Tennesee. YOu had to be full blood indian to recieve indian property. On the other side of my family I have a Great grandfather who was born on a reservation in East Texas. I work for what I have and they need to become Americanized and do the same..

The saying is divide and conquer. I am originally from the East Coast and all you here there is how the white man is keeping down the black man.

    How ignorant. White people brought alcohol and drugs. Such things were not in native american culture. Not only did they introduce addictions, they took away their children who were beaten, tortured, raped and murdered for speaking their language and praying in the only ways they knew. They destroyed families and their way of life. Stripped them of all they knew. Forced their own “christian” beliefs on them. And the affects of theiier barbaric acts are still obvious today.

    The Indian did lose. There were wrongs committed by both sides, lying in treaties for example, but the Indians are being paid for it with monthly checks and free food and housing, and a free college education if they so choose. The natives need to get over it. The Sioux, for example took their land from the crow and other tribes when they left Minnesota. All this land at one point, save for the very beginning, has traded hands in war or what have you. Like was stated above, if this land is taken away and given back to the indians, why not give all of texas and California back to mexico and Florida to Spain, or even most of europe back to the barbarians. They need to get over it. Those Indians that have chosen to forget that and lead productive lives have done very well. Take a look at those that are out around Washington. Well are all Americans, part of the same country, and we need to start acting like it or this country will continue to fall apart.

  • ginny

    Karma may be a bitch but I live in Riverton and all I can talk about is the here and now. The Indians do bitch and moan about the past way too much to the point of it being an excuse for the way they live today with child abuse, alcoholism, drug abuse, murder and total disregard for their land. They have been receiving hand outs from the Government for so long they no longer appreciate anything that is done for them or given to them. It doesn’t matter who was here first it matters who is here now. If Riverton goes back to the Indians it will become a dump just like the reservation.

  • wyomingresident

    Please do a little bit of research before writing your article and before commenting. The town of Riverton has always been on the reservation, it is a little pocket of the US in the middle of a sovereign nation. Due to this fact the reservation has a say in the air and water quality, which is what the EPA ruled. The Native Americans will have a say in how the Clean Air Act will be enforced and monitored but as far as owning land, laws, courts, and so on, nothing will change. No one took 10,000 white peoples homes away to give to a bunch of Indians, no matter how funny that would have been.

  • ike

    Lets all return to the 1800’s. the Arapahoe and Shoshoni are dire enemy’s and kill each other on a regular basis. The Indians are a defeated race of people thru numerous battles and much blood shed. The ‘white man’, because of expansion westward, won these battles- no different than ALL the historic wars throughout the world. Look at what the government has done to the Indians by not letting them become part of the competitive social balance of our USA. This is ridiculous and saddens many of the native Americans’!!

    What these folks need to do is make a deal with the Indians to keep their property and use theland to become an “offshore” financial district with all the benefits that come along with that. All residents of this town can now give up their US citizenship and be free once again. i.e. no longer under the thumb of the US government. ALL Federal and State law enforcement no longer applies and they can become an extremely wealthy town. Just because of this decision.

    This may be one of the best things to happen to this town IF they handle it in a wise manner.

  • Trista Buskohl

    I find it interesting that you can say that yet remain ignorant of religious views while likening a religion to another which believes in some very different and distinct values. Like calling a Baptist a Catholic because they both believe in Christ and blaming the Catholics for the actions of the Baptist. It’s a very bigoted attitude for someone who dislikes racists.

  • Trista Buskohl

    While that is what should have happened it didn’t so if natives on reservations want their heritage and culture back that badly why not go back to it now that they have the access to knowledge of it all? Why keep accepting government payoffs that should have been restricted to a few generations instead of 400 years and continuing and complaining that they are not allowed to be self governed when they are given license to do things most citizens of any other race cannot without criminal consequences.

    http://www.wherearethechildren.ca/en/projector/ <—go ahead, keep telling them to stop whining and get over it, this is just an example of what some Natives have endured, do they have drug and alcohol issues, hell yes they do, we have destroyed their very way of life, not to mention who exposed them to it in the first place? This material world we have forced upon them goes against their very nature, we are all paying the price. We have destroyed most of the shaman that kept the earth in tune, it may sound crazy yes but the earth is alive just as you and I are alive and well there is a lot more to it then obviously some of your shallow, materialistic minds can comprehend, we are causing way to much harm to the balance and the earth can't repair itself fast enough, the shaman did wonders to aid the earth in this process, they are gone and we are causing more damage then ever before, it will be to our demise sooner or later.

  • Wyoming Resident

    The ignorance of many of you is disgusting! Although most alive today were not personally affected by the boarding school era, the Trail of Tears, and etc., INTERGENERATIONAL TRAUMA still exists!!! We are talking about a great deal of native children being reared WITHOUT cultural values, including parenting skills. Thus, the same children in the boarding school era who managed to escape, or live until they were released, became parents who raised children THE SAME WAY THEY WERE REARED IN THE BOARDING SCHOOLS!!! They had no other knowledge of how to parent. Why does the reservation have so much crime and addiction is ubiquitous? Because generations of children are reared in the same way children who lived through the boarding school era were reared. What does this look like? Physical abuse, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, and neglect as rearing techniques. As was said previously, all sense of culture was beaten out of these children-thus, all cultural (healthy) coping mechanisms to deal with the abuse and trauma were lost. This is why addiction is so prevalent!!! Please, before making negative umbrella statements or generalizations about first-nation peoples, be knowledgeable about what you are saying.

  • Wyomingite

    So many comments, some positive, most negative. I’ve lived in Wyoming for the greater part of my life, I claim it as my home. To see it destroyed, yes, I said DESTROYED, by the government (because that’s what will happen if this passes) saddens my heart. If Riverton is to lose its status as being part of the US there will be no control! It is true that the Native Americans were defeated by the people we know as the PIONEERS but in truth the real pioneers are and always will be the Native Americans’ ancestors. Those Native Americans who still live today are mostly only partial, by that I mean that they have mixed with other races and their pure bloodlines are diminishing. I respect the Native Americans and their way of life, as long as they have kept true to it!! I’m not going to just GIVE my respect to someone who is Native American just because they are a DESCENDANT of someone who respected the land. I don’t think that we should still have to pay for what the ancestors of this nation did so long ago. It’s time for the people to start earning their keep, whether it be by going out and getting a JOB or working the land as their ancestors did. Will they?! Most of them have but some just want the government handout. To those who have stated that it is the “white man’s” fault, BLAH! I suppose you also think it’s the white man’s fault that we took California, Texas, Nevada, etc…from the Mexican government also. Yeah, it’s the white man’s fault that the Mexican president realized that he would not be able to win the war and surrendered because our strength was greater than his. How can we put blame solely on one side?! History has shown that each side of a war has done something to the other to cause the war, including the Native Americans against the white settlers. Both sides were only trying to defend their right to survive, one side was stronger than the other! White people may have introduced Christianity, alcohol, drugs, etc…but no one was FORCED to eat, drink, smoke or be baptised. It’s called FREE WILL, that’s what it was called then and is still called today. It’s a personal choice that every person makes. Get off your high horse…you are no better than any other person.

  • Richard

    No one seems to be talking about WHY the EPA would make such a move. The fact that the land under discussion has been in dispute a long time and they feel the legal arguments are highly compelling and they need to be returned to the actual owner. Think of it a different way. Think if a big Wyoming rancher signed a contract for a large piece of land from the government and fulfilled the contract/treaty and was issued the land. Then people and local governments started to use the land without the landowner’s permission or approval. But the landowner did not have the skills nor the resources to stop it, yet never agreed to it. Time goes on, a few generations even and now a LOT of people are on their land and they are still complaining and not giving up their rights to the land legally given to them through a contract with the feds. Eventually a federal agency looks into the situation and realizes that all those people took over the use of the land illegally and do not really own it at all because it was already owned by the original rancher with the signed sealed and completed legal contract. Thus they tell those who were squatters…the land isn’t yours and never was yours and the original owner has maintained their rights to it and never ceded them to anyone. Different story under these circumstances?

    Wow people really! What brings to my mind when I read this morning was 1st my family and friends that reside there! The state of Wyoming is beautiful uncharted land and it’s people for the most part are the way America once was. Kind, caring they still help their neighbors or a stranger in need. Wyoming is a very resourceful place everyone knows that and when You look a cross the land You see just that! I also know that Wyoming is a Government play land and testing field! Just like New Mexico is! My experience living in Wyoming was some of the best days, good people on the other side of that coin I also was involved with some very eye opening stuff ~ My involvement with building of the Halliburten Project funded by Government and Bush’s Vice! I also am oil field trash, I worked out in the Jonah field’s mixing, cleaning up, and preparing that frack shit being forced into Mother Earth! I lived below the Jonah, my water was green and undrinkable! On my country road for years it’s on record that every woman that had lived there had died of cancer, had cancer at death or was dealing with cancer!I’m not upset at the ruling or the politics of this ~~ my concern is for the PEOPLE of Wyoming and the bigger, grander of “WE THE PEOPLE”! This ruling is valid ~~ But we should all be concerned for the people and what has also been seeded within the bigger and grander agenda!

  • Craycray

    I know it to be true because I live here, John Campbell. And what does that mean to all of us living here that are not Native American and part of this reservation? We will all have to give the land up that we PAID for? And why in the flying ***K is the EPA ruling over peoples land. They are supposed to protect the environment not take peoples land. NO MORE BIG GOVERNMENT

  • CrayCray

    Do you live in Wyoming, Leslie? If you do you will see the animals aren’t gone and the streams are still there, healthy enough to drink out of. Head out to the reservation and see all of the poached animals the the natives dump everywhere. Things happened the way they happened. So what you propose doing exactly the same thing you claim to hate so much (which is take land from people)? Hypocrite

  • Georgia Woolett-Roy

    I do understand your pain. The biggest mistake to me was to take the land and put the Native Americans on reservations, they (the government) should have bought and paid for the land they needed or wanted and everyone should have lived as they do today. The Native Americans wouldn’t have become dependent on government and they would have become responsible citizens, making their own way. There was plenty of land at that time for all.I believe this new issue is about air quality and not much more. Probably it is getting blown way out of proportion. I am originally from Lander so am very familiar with all the issues you are saying. It is just unfortunate that what happened long ago has such ramifications in today’s society. There are so many Native Americans who do have ambitions, dreams and do well. When we introduced alcohol into their lives it did end up having pretty dire consequences.I hope I have explained my feeling better and do hope things work out for the best for everyone involved.

  • Marke

    Our first problem is the fact that an agency of the government feels they have the right, over-looking legislation, to make any changes they want. If the people feel this is anywhere legal, they have let themselves down. Legislation was created by Congress. It should go back to Congress to be changed. Just because it can be changed with the stroke of a pen, doesn’t make it legal.

  • Anne-Marie R. Foster

    Gee, where to start – First, Native Americans didn’t “own” the land – they used it and respected it, defended territory and moved on when things changed. It’s the European mindset that established ownership and created reservations to give back what was taken. Secondly, I’m not sure how the citizens of Riverton would no longer qualify for federal benefits as the reservation population is qualified – not that all residents take benefits. Thirdly, while Native Americans were here before the Europeans, they came from Eastern Europe themselves – so they aren’t really “native” either – they were just here longer. Finally, this is probably more about the casinos than about reclaiming land. The Shoshone Rose and Wind River casinos do very well – both are located near Riverton. What better way to capitalize on the dollars spent in the community, than by owning the community and charging rent and usage fees.
    Oh, I do live in Wyoming – unfortunately, we are a largely Republican state, although we have had Democrats as our federal representatives, as well as several governors who claim that party. Our electoral votes do lean Republican – unless the state as a whole votes for the Democrat. I’m pretty sure that’s happened never. Either way, if you aren’t from here SHUT YOUR MOUTHS and keep your uninformed opinions to yourselves. Remind all your friends that Wyoming sucks and you should all stay away. Thanks!

  • Anne-Marie R. Foster

    You obviously know nothing about Wyoming – we are largely independently minded and our representatives (the good ones anyway) vote for the good of the people, not the party. This was obviously a unilateral decision by the Department of the Interior and done without thought for the people in the community – the DOI isn’t party-affiliated but is intended to maintain and protect the lands for this country.

  • Anne-Marie R. Foster

    That would be “themselves”. Truly, if you want to be taken seriously, learn how to use the language, then you wouldn’t come across as a crackpot and maybe your thoughts would be accepted, instead of discounted as the ravings of an uneducated twit.

  • DacraJR

    Obviously you’ve never read The Bible before because it doesn’t say anyone who doesn’t believe is going to hell. The thief on the cross is a fine example of that. No one was trying to shove anything in your face but in your stupidity you found it necessary to comment about it. You don’t even know what the person was trying to say. I didn’t even know what the person was trying to say. And obviously they weren’t talking to you or putting it in your face. We have a thing here in the US that says you can practice whatever religion you want and not get discriminated against. So quit discriminating and next time read the Bible or have some kind of knowledge about it before you decide to try to put someone down based on it. Thank you, that is all.

  • Anne-Marie R. Foster

    Well, you can spell grammar and that’s a point for you. If we don’t accept and expect proper form, how can we possibly continue to communicate with each other? It is incredibly tiresome to attempt a discussion with a person who fails to form complete sentences, thereby completing an actual thought. Why waste time on gobbledegook when you can find a more coherent person to have a conversation with? Now that person you just left may have a very sharp mind and great ideas, but if you can’t understand him, nobody will ever know.

Do you people really not realize that there are good folks in every race no matter of the skin color and then you have all the shit heads too? I know a lot more white shit heads then any other race and I am white.Does it really matter what color you skin is we are all Americans. So we should not fight between races but rather as Americans against! the ones trying to tear us all apart. History is in the past we have to all move forward and deal with what has happened and do our best with what we have to create a country we are proud of. Go ahead and pick apart my grammer those of you that would prefer to deal with an easier problem that will make you feel like a better person.

  • Randall Ritchie Sr.

    A lot of what some of you say on here is true but all of you are missing the whole point of this move it’s not about giving the land back it’s about getting you all fired up to start a fight so the can install marshal law. instead of fighting each other we need to band to with each other and fight what the Gov. is trying to do to us they have broken their vow to up hold the laws of this land they have given power to groups IRS,EPA,HLS, and so on to put all of us who don’t agree with then in camp like their did the Indians check out FEMAs web site their are 800 camps in the US largest holds 2,000,000. plus why do their 150,000. body bags or all the 600,000. coffins they ordered and each one holds 6 people. and why does HLS need 1.2 billion rounds of Ammo????? this is what we need to be fighting about. I hope all of you will open your eyes before it’s too late. God Bless To all of us.

    “Might makes right!” So the saying goes…. and all throughout human history this has always been true. Guess what? It will continue to be so for as long as humans inhabit the earth. Sooner or later we are going to have to fight for the very ground we as Americans hold. We are going to have to fight for it just as the Indians did and all other displaced ethnic groups fought for their turf. This is an inevitable fact. It can not be defended against. It can not be legislated into permanence. No rule, law or decree can EVER make a patch of ground truly secure. Who is to say how long before another epic land grab happens on North American soil? As much as I truly hate to admit it…. future generations WILL see it again.

Because why better yourself when you are handed a free ride. Generations to come will learn the same lesson. So sad.

Marshal Law? Really? Their still is law stupid asses, any crime comment in federal land are automatically felonies! Drunk! There are many on both side. Drunks are a part of American Society. You dumb white idiots don’t realize the benefit of living on the REZ. No Tax!! Something you all complain about would no longer apply to you. Natives can benefit from this as well, they can impose their own tax…jk. Native Americans have a right to a Sovereign Nation, which they can in still to build a Better town, for even the bitter white man. The Non-Natives their can benefit from that as well, can I say free enterprise regulated by the Local Native Government. Again, the white man taking thing way out of proportion. It also means all the agreements you went into contracts are void, and can’t be taken away from you. So stop talking shit on both sides, current residents would even become qualified to rights to royalties if the Natives so chose. Their are great benefits for both sides, only thing different is the white don’t have to report to the national government, just their trusty of the land they live on. An if you chose to leave, u don’t loose shit. Either way your still a United States citizens, just better. Atleast I think.

    Astute observation. I’ve been saying this for quite a while. The uniparty, Democrats and the GOP leaders are using tactics of division. If you can keep the people squabbling over tribal issues, they’ll never unite to defeat the tyranny being imposed.
    All public displays of partisan political rancor in DC are kabuki theater, designed to make us think they are fighting each other…all the while the leaderships of both parties are working to help each other get rich at the expense of our nation’s future.

    What is the EPA doing getting involved in this anyway? What is there to Environmentally Protect here? What goes around comes around. The white man took it from the red man, and now the tables have turned back the other way. I say good. Never should have happened in the first place. Sticking the Native Americans on so called Reservations was wrong. I live in an area that was once Native land, and if they came back I wouldn’t fuss, and would hope we could live together in harmony. It’s all comes down to I want, I need, I’m going to take this from you. Me,Me,Me! Stupid! BTW, I still think Osama Bama is a Big Fat BOOB!

  • freedom fighter

    All you are fucking idiots. I can’t believe the shit thats being said on both sides. The racism, had always been out of control in the northern states in the mid-west. Yea, I am Native but im also 1/2 white also. For you dumb fucks saying, take it out on the Indian. Your fucking stupid!!! For you Indians saying, get off my land your fucking stupid too!! Marshal Law? Really? Their still is law stupid asses, any crime comment in federal land are automatically felonies! Drunk! There are many on both side. Drunks are a part of American Society. You dumb white idiots don’t realize the benefit of living on the REZ. No Tax!! Something you all complain about would no longer apply to you. Natives can benefit from this as well, they can impose their own tax…jk. Native Americans have a right to a Sovereign Nation, which they can in still to build a Better town, for even the bitter white man. The Non-Natives their can benefit from that as well, can I say free enterprise regulated by the Local Native Government. Again, the white man taking thing way out of proportion. It also means all the agreements you went into contracts are void, and can’t be taken away from you. So stop talking shit on both sides, current residents would even become qualified to rights to royalties if the Natives so chose. Their are great benefits for both sides, only thing different is the white don’t have to report to the national government, just their trusty of the land they live on. An if you chose to leave, u don’t loose shit. Either way your still a United States citizens, just better. Atleast I think.

    This is just too wild and ironic if true.

  • Chris_98

    The issue is really more about an ever-powerful Federal government. The reason why this is disturbing is because the EPA is, like all federal agencies, becoming too powerful. The author writes “Disenfranchises American Citizens” and I’m not sure what he means by that since, well, “American Indians” are, quite obviously, American citizens,

    For me it’s really about the Federal government getting far to involved in ALL of our lives.

    If you all look at the problem and use your bloody heads you would see that the britsh took the land from Indains and america was formed then the britsh was told by those in america to piss of then they told the indains to take a back seat now when your leader says this town is to be returned he is doing what all the rest did before him so WAKE UP PEOPLE AND DEAL WITH HIM SO THE TOWN CAN BE RETURNED TO THOSE THAT LIVE THERE NOW ……….shit i am an australian yeah the same thing happened here with the british and the aboriginal people the people we put in power have said sorry to them for the past wrongs …..but people of the USA still hold it against each other for what the past power people have done ….GROW UP AND SMELL THE ROSES ….If obama gets his way with one town and state all the rest will be in his power to …..SO GET OF YOUR ASSES AND GET RID OF HIM TO HELP ALL YOUR CITIZEN’S

  • otherwise

    (sorry, it’s long):
    logic: the reservation’s concern re doing this is they waited until the Cheney/Bush admin and those prior were replaced by a more concerned/friendlier administration; i.e. filed their initial papers in 2008 and did so as an admin filing not court…, so they’d get a sure shot – congratulations [if] the intent is to preserve!
    But: once land is designated reservation, it is under legal jurisdiction of BIA officers/courts, not state/local police. the aprox 1200 tribe members (Shoshone and Arapaho) on this reservation are held accountable to any crimes they may commit by a group of 300 BIA officers under federal jurisdiction. the town of Riverton prior to the EPAs decision was enforced by local/state police, not federal . Which could be good/bad for everyone :
    Though certain it is only less than half the percentage of the population doing the most of the disruption, stats show non-violent crime of those residents on the reservation consistently sits at 2.5 times higher than the national avg.; violent crimes continue at 20 percent higher than national avg. I feel very sorry for anyone who lives within the reservation that must live amongst these criminals who is not a part of them. The number of police to residents within the prior reservation boundaries (minus the town of Riverton) is one police officer for every 320 people; the number of police officers in Chicago is one officer for every 225 people (using Chicago because it is very populated /high crime city but even their violent crime stat is only in the single digits higher than national average. Thus, in statistical analysis there should be ample enough enforcement officers within the boundaries of the reservation as it was prior to the EPA’s ruling to keep those stats way lower than they are; but sadly, this is not the case… i.e. – again, Chicago’s crime rates are much lower even though it is a more heavily populated area. Per ratio: if the BIA added 5 more officers at the current rate of population, the Wyoming reservation would have more police officers per capita than Chicago.
    Therefore, the EPAs ruling brings the town of Riverton’s biz’s and citizens into a dilemma: since the town now becomes part of the reservation, there is no jurisdiction for the local police to apprehend, arrest, nor prosecute criminals of native american decent. By law any reservation land is under jurisdiction of the BIA only; and with the town on the reservation, local police have no authority. The town’s biz’s (i.e. – Walmart, supermarkets, all of them) would be on reservation property, any/all crimes, petty to grand thefts of autos, etc. against other than native American residents would be outside their jurisdiction; as well, residential burglaries or any other crimes that are committed inside the town cannot by current laws, be defended by the local police; and the state courts will not be allowed to prosecute any crimes, non-violent or otherwise. Good for criminals, bad for law abiding citizens.
    Since BIA officers have millions of other acres to patrol on the already established reservation for the meth labs and other illegal stuff going on, the two tribes’ members who are the actual ones notorious in perpetuating the illegal drug economy and because of the drug biz they run, other violent crimes, the Fed Govt will need to increase the number of BIA officers to guard the town and set up another court system to prosecute these criminals… this is going to cost hundreds of millions of federal dollars to initiate and annually thereafter 10s of millions. In essence, one can see how many tribe residents as well as non native-americans feel this is: a) unsafe, and/or b) a Federal Govt going “around and under” in a way to circumvent local control from local police and insert federal control; both take away those citizens’ safety and state’s rights. I doubt that’s the intent, but will be the outcome.
    The town of Riverton, itself, previously not being part of the reservation territory, had a lower than national average crime rate [ if] you redacted out the arrests of reservation residents for thefts etc., using their own city/county and state police within their city’s boundaries; but, with[ those] added in the crime rate goes up . Up until this change the city’s local law enforcement have done an excellent job; let’s hope for all, it stays that way. If the feds do not increase BIA police presence, statistics prove there will be more crime for the town itself.
    This change is going to cost the US taxpayers even more and will probably not work anyway. Either meth production and violent crimes on more under-populated parts of the reservation will skyrocket to an even more uncontrollable percentage than the 20% higher currently because federal law enforcement will be too busy protecting Walmarts, etc., and that would be sad for the reservation residents who are law abiding, not committing crimes (i.e. – leave them at the mercy of these criminals on other reservation lands) or, in the alternative, the town will slowly become a ghost town as businesses/families other than reservation members move away due to the increased crime that cannot be enforced legally by the local (non BIA officers/courts).
    Add to that the frightening and further negative environmental impact that even more meth amphetamine production will do to the lands (meth labs take out everything around them and are, in fact, superfund sites to cause the most horrific problems for our environment – worse than almost anything, and there will soon be a bigger problem. I don’t understand why the EPA does not consider this the same threat when it is on reservations as it does when these cooking labs are other places?
    My advice from looking in as a third party observer is to “change out” – give the reservation other land in the area/a larger land area even than is the current city might be better(?); an area that is not developed (the feds own a lot of land surrounding what is the reservation now other than the town limits of Riverton), and therefore both sides continue to work together on environmental impact in a harmonious way, while being thrifty with the US taxpayers’ monies and preserving an established legal system in the area that most benefits all citizens.
    Sometimes being so analytical/ truthful causes one side or another to go on attack mode, instead of looking realistically at what is best for all so everyone prospers and remains at peace: facts are facts – other than the contamination of the meth labs the EPA quality stats in Riverton’s area are far below anything that is considered environmentally unfriendly compared to the rest of the US, so it seems confusing. And again, there are many other parcels of land much larger than Riverton that can be traded out – some are so much more beautiful, and a glorious society such as the Shoshone and Arapaho I think would be more than delighted to have a trade of other/better land than the town of Riverton be put on the table/given to them. (it would save a lot, both in $$$ and confusions for all). Peace.

I’ve been dating natives since I was 15 years old, I have a very small amount of Native blood in me, but you hardly ever see white people and native people dating. Why? Because they get laughed at by their “buddies”, put down, made to feel inferior, mocked, I’ve been on a few reservations but the Wind River Reservation far surpasses any racism I’ve ever seen anywhere in the states before. And you CAN’T disagree with me on that because you KNOW it to be true, especially if you are from here.

    Congress…..Duh I’m aware of that and I was referring to my ancestors and all the ones that were on the trail of tears but then you probably never heard of that or when the Sioux was chased to Canada in freezing weather and so on. the point is that they were promised land that would be theirs and the treaty was signed and they never got the land now all this time later Obama is using this to get us to fight each other why are you letting him win???????????????? We are now one people under God not Indian. Jew, Black, White, or what ever if you were born in America you are American so really its time we started acting like ones I pray God finds your hearts and opens them so your eyes will see only his love for all of us and he only wants the best for us so lets start honoring him as our Father and stop acting like a bunch of spoiled kids didn’t get what they wanted for Christmas

    I have lived all over the US and I was hurt in 1983 broke my back and had to be on food stamps when I first applied I went in the office with a full girdle brace on like a corset and had Dr. reports and two large scares down my back had to go to restroom when I came back my wife was crying she said we couldn’t get them, But I sat their watching Black people come and go in new cars and wearing gold that their took off when they went to the back and putting it back on when they came out with hands full of food stamps and to day some 36 years later it is the same so I guess what I’m saying is the system is misused a lot they lie and steal so they can get ahead and they will have to answer to God for that. now we have the same problem with 25 million illegals in this country Obama wants to make legal. It is hard enough to find work and pay all your bills and have to support them on welfare. We need to band together not fight each other.

  • Randall Ritchie Sr.

    Mark Mahoney not sure how old you are and it don’t matter but you missed the point it not about the Indians it’s about what the Gov. is doing they are the ones who screwed the Indians and the Blacks were slaves but that is another matter and a court ruling for a black slave owner who was the first black slave owner back then is what caused that, if you read your history but their again it was done by the Gov.

    Man, you guys are playing right into the governments hands. don’t you see they are pinning us ALL of us Americans against each other. They are doing this because it is so much easier for us to go against each other than having the government do it. You really think that The Native Americans first priority is to get rid of all the whites and take over. I Don’t think so!!! alll they want is to be heard and have the government stick to their promises. I can’t believe how blind some of you are and you are the governments puppets. All this hating is what’s gonna bring America down and make it easier for the gov. do you see how easy it was for the gov. to ruin the reservations and make them alcoholics. They can do it to us too. How are they suppose to better them selves when the gov. makes hard for them to do so. they are limited on what programs they can use to build and maintain properties. You act like they are getting this huge check. NOT!!! they are lease checks, the gov. pays the Native Americans to use their land for grazing, highways, electric poles, piping etc. and let me tell you it is not a lot. The government took so much away from the Native Americans and put them all on these tiny reservations. What you read in your history books is not the truth. Don’t the government win guys!!! : )

    Sen. Cale Case: EPA ruling deals with air quality matters only; Taxation and criminal jurisdiction unchanged

  • CrayCray

    People are in an uproar because this administration just does whatever they want with out the peoples consent first. Totally unpresidential. Let me ask you this, what does boarder control have to do with air quality. Exactly. :NOTHING.. And are you trying to tell me that Wyoming or the reservation has bad air? I know this to not be true because I’ve lived in Wyoming my whole entire life. We have some of the cleanest air in the entire united states. Why is this one of the areas they are concentrating on “air quality” and did you realize the epa wants to regulate all of our water ways including irrigation ditches? Specifically here in the Riverton area. If you ask me this goes a lot deeper than air quality control or bettering anything besides the governments pocket book.

I have seen the housing in such disarray and tore up, why bother taking care of it, its the old adage you didn’t pay for it so why bother they will give us some more. Native American can get free medical care, a place to live, food stamps, an college education all FREE off the tax payer. Most don’t want to do anything but sit on the reservation and do nothing.

    Just what does this have to do with protecting the environment? As a point of law I do not think that the EPA should be able to institute any law/restrictions on anyone. The idea that our “law makers” delegated them this power was insane to start with. They only did that because of the impact to their carrers if they tried to pass some of the things the EPA has gotten away with.

  • wwj745

    Yours is the over emotional rant. This is from the link you provided.

    “In its ruling, the EPA put Riverton, Kinnear and Pavillion inside the
    reservation’s boundaries, despite 1905 congressional action designating
    the borders and past court rulings to the contrary.”

    So this has been settled in court before. Now it is just being brought up again to serve as a distraction to keep people divided.

    Ridiculous! Indians are Americans and our governments are full members of the American family of governments.

  • n8v girl

    The Environmental Protection Agency is declaring this? Whoa, I didn’t know they had that sort of power. I am from the Penobscot Nation, Maine.
    October 10, 1980
    Native Americans in Maine sue the state over land claims.
    Since Native tribes are considered dependent
    sovereign nations under the Constitution, age-old treaties can be the
    basis of new legal claims. In 1972, the Penobscot and
    Passamaquoddy Indians sued to get federal help in their dispute with
    Maine. They say the state took 12.5 million acres illegally—in
    fraudulent treaties signed 200 years ago when Maine was still part of
    Massachusetts. Today, the lawsuit was settled. President Carter signed the Maine Indian Claims Settlement Act. The settlement is controversial. It gives the tribes $81.5 million if they
    give up their sovereign claim to the land —nearly two-thirds of the
    state of Maine.
    We did take the money, which is a good thing, otherwise the the non natives could have possibly lost the lands they had purchased. Not all natives have ugly hearts. It’s the promises that are made to them that seem to never be met.

    Not all reservations are the same either. We don’t own a casino. Not that we didn’t try. We were shot down 3 times because the state of Maine didn’t want the illegal activities that surround casinos in their state. But lo and behold, not a couple of years after our last attempt, the state approved non native out of state investors to build and run 2 casinos in this state. Hmm, makes you wonder.
    We do understand there are other business opportunities/ventures to be had, and we are looking to those.

    Whether the lands were stolen or lands were won in conflicts, I just want to say that native peoples to this land of North America were displaced and relocated to some of the WORST terrain/environment and have had a rough time adjusting. They couldn’t always grow or raise the foods/livestock in these areas they were relocated to. Foods that have been part of the tribes diet since forever. This weakened them.

    I think it’s possible for the people of Riverton to talk with the tribal leaders, government leader and come to some sort of agreement everyone can live with. What is happening there in Wyoming wasn’t fair to the natives and is certainly not fair to the current homeowners/landowners/businesses owners.

    Just talk, negotiate. Like I said, not all Natives have ugly hearts. I will say the US government does lie, most of the time. I don’t want to see all Tribal Nations/First Nations having to intervene if people want to exercise their rights under the constitution. Just talk to your people and they will talk to their people and come to some sort of agreement.

    This article is pure B.S. All the EPA decision does is to grant the tribes the right to monitor air quality in the area. (For those of you from outside Wyo, Riverton is entirely surrounded by the res.) The decision doesn’t take away any local citizens’ property or rights. And it certainly doesn’t remove Riverton from the U.S. Oh, and BTW, Indian reservations are part of the U.S.

  • DerpaSherpa

    When they say inside the reservation’s boundaries, they are talking about a 50 mile extension for air quality rights. They aren’t taking “the white man’s” land away. They are exercising their right to prevent development that would compromise their air quality. This is also a state right (Indian reservations are more or less legally just like states). It allows communities on state borders to play a role and have a voice when a neighboring state decides that a coal burning power plant is a good idea.

Do I take that out on the American Indians of today? Hell no because it’s in the past and all we can do is look forward to the future. Not only that but I have mixed heritage. We won’t get anywhere if we are trapped in a spinning world of hate about something we have no control over. And teaching our kids how to hate someone based on the color of their skin. As a psychologist I would expect you to know that without anything being said.

    What all people need to understand whether black, white or red, Obama is wanting a civil war to erupt between the races so he can declare Martial Law. And we all know what that would mean. No one would win in a situation such as this. Please we all need to stick together against one common enemy and that is our current Governmental Administration and the illegal President we have in office. Just give it some thought and see the current tide this President has been trying carry our country to and that is civil unrest between citizens.

  • Muckquashim Hopkins

    Buddy. I worked as a cultural resource monitor and field specialist for historic preservation. what you just quoted was “theory”. Theory is a “placeholder” notion put into effect because there is lack of substantial evidence to refute it. there is now substantial evidence which is pushing that date back to 30,000 or even 40,000 and that is without the inclusion of the various artifacts, lithics, and stratigraphic recordings that have pushed that date back even further, but were absconded and destroyed by individuals within the scientific and archaeological communities because it would have proved that most modern anthropology and adjoining sciences are still in their fledgling stages and, in most cases, Grossly inaccurate!

  • Deane Bobbit

    OK this story is the biggest POS ever put on the internet. You need to decide what government agency is going to be the tool of the “New World Order” and stick with it-is it going to be FEMA, EPA or IRS?
    Oh, and just about every place in the U.S. belonged to Native Americans LONG before you whiteys came along. Poor poor white people.

    Well, kind guest, you are absolutely right. There are TWO words spelled almost the same and my dictionary did not catch it and neither did I! One is misogynist which is hatred of women and the other is misogamist which is a hater of marriage. That is interesting. I think I shall use both. Thank you very much for the correction! See, everyone can make mistakes, even with an electronic Franklin dictionary!! God Bless!

    If your not to stupid to look at the pic that is also posted, along with my post I am married to a Full blooded American native, I am also 2/3 American native myself I have lived on a reservation. she has lived on a reservation. I am 1/3 apache and 1/3 Cherokee, I am also listed as Native American, My heritage traces back to The white Mountain Apache tribe and also lawton oklahoma, when the govt was moving tribes, I also have the right to live on a reservation and so does she, she is Chickasaw, But we have chosen to live off and make our own way. The govt tricked our people into treaties and land giveaways only to renig later, so don’t tell me what I don’t know. And as for standing up and saying anything I have the right, Its not a red white black brown yellow issue. Its a human issue. That statement you made about maybe you didn’t meet me because you were drunk, Who knows maybe you were, That’s your responsibility like I said in my post. If you want to call yourself a dirty injun that’s your problem, then I guess that’s the way you see them. You own nothing the earth the sky nor the land your here for a short time in passage. You are entitled to nothing, but what you make of yourself, our father and his fathers made there own way. As for knowledge as you claim I need I did gain knowledge to know if I stayed on the res, I would be stuck in a vicous cycle to live a life that I didn’t want, it don’t matter where I live on or off res I know who I am and where I came from.

    What happened to the Scottish you idiot? Scotland won the war of independence with England. Hence the fact it was an independent kingdom and country until 1707. If England won the war against Scotland the words United Kingdom and Great Britain wouldn’t exist as the Scottish kingdom would have already been absorbed intot he English one. But it wasn’t. Get your facts straight about basic history instead of silly misconceptions. As for the Irish, well, they were conquered by the English, Tudors and Cromwell.

  • Stevey Irwin

    She’s the Queen of the UK, numbnuts. Her ancestry goes back to the Stewarts, Scottish kings of England. Jeez.

  • Stevey Irwin

    The Picts merged with the Scotti tribe. Constantine, the Pagan Pictish prince had to flee to Ireland as a boy as he was heir to the throne and his life was in danger. He came back to be king and was a Christian. Declared Pictland a Christan kingdom and Paganism was given the boot. That’s the first mention of “Scotland” anywhere, when he came back. The two tribes merged, there were common enemies to fight, Vikings and English.

  • Curiosity

    I’m not sure why people are getting so angry about this? I mean take a minute and think about what just happened! The US government has ceded part of its land!! We should all buy more and more land around Riverton and see if we can get the US to relinquish ALL of it. Why not try to live in peace with the Native Americans? I mean if anyone knows how much Washington can screw someone over it is them. Don’t make the Native Americans the enemy here. Instead we should go there and congratulate them for accomplishing such a tremendous feat!

    we need to unite with like manner men in our community, so they don’t pick us off one by one, if a neighbor is attacked by a swat team at 3:00 a.m. who is going to answer the call?

    well then the EPA next needs to inform the PLO that all land belongs to the Jews in and around Jerusalem! and to vacate immediately, after all through history, this land was promised by the Great Creator, to Abraham, Muslims go back to Mecca stick your butts in the air and kiss the dirt, point your faces to the center of the earth where hell and your father are believed to reside!

    NM Patriot, the meaning of Jack’s statement carries weight without having to make a bogus statement. Leading with “Biggest Slaughter” (an outright false statement) only serves to make the rest of his argument less plausible to many readers.

  • Muckquashim Hopkins

    That source is out dated and that particular case went up for review in 2010 and was shot down because the archaeologist made a hasty all. When the bones and more particularly the skull were taken in for forensic examination and analysis they were found to have “mongoloid” features. so sorry to burst your bubble, but no.

  • Paul

    OOOHHH do I sense an unhappy black person here?! If so, you need to open your eyes and see what has happened to your race. The only thing African Americans have done is switch masters. Their new masters are now our government. Until such a time that your race stand up; do for yourselves and become independent of government hand outs, you will always be a slave to the white man. Regarding what is left of a once proud Indian race(s), visit any Indian reservation to see what this government has done to them. It is the saddest site you’ll ever see. They’ve been stripped of all honor, self respect and are totally dependent of government. You can expect the same end to the black population if they don’t wake up.
    Actually, we are ALL slaves to something or someone. The only difference is some of us pay to support this lousy government while others depend on them and our hard earned money.

  • Muckquashim Hopkins

    I have worked as a Cultural Resource Monitor and Field specialist for historic preservation. What most of you just quoted was “theory”. Theory is a “placeholder” notion put into effect because there is lack of substantial evidence to refute it. There is NOW substantial evidence which is pushing that date back to 30,000ybp or even 40,000ybp (ybp=years before present) and that is without the inclusion of the various artifacts, lithics, and stratigraphic recordings that have pushed that date back even further, but were absconded and/or destroyed by individuals within the Scientific and Archaeological communities because it would have proved that most modern theories upto that point were Grossly inaccurate!

    There is now even further evidence being found off the coast of Maryland via a survey being conducted by the USGS while exploring the Continental shelf, that people had been living along the eastern seaboard as far back as 23,000ybp (thats 25,000 years) and that is just the tip of the iceburg! This has been substantiated by the finding of Mastodon skulls (with a radio carbon date of 23,000 ybp) as well as Lithic (stone tools) evidence that people were here a lot longer than previously thought. And “pre-dating” Clovis civilizations. It has been found through statigraphy readings that the Continental Shelf was once low lying grasslands and marshlands and inhabited by “Native Americans” during the “Iceage” and after. The Bering strait theory is being rewritten as we speak, So let’s just leave that out of it.

  • Rowdy

    I am part American Indian and I don’t care. Right is right and wrong is wrong. The Indians were not here first and that doesn’t matter anyway. No one stole your land. It was taken as spoils of war, you know how that works don’t you. You fight to keep what you have, if you do not fight hard enough you lose. The American settlers tried to work with the Indians but they were greedy and insisted that they would not share the land with blue eyes. So they lost even more of it, that they did not have the right to refuse to begin with. I think that in actuality the white man was extremely considerate and respectful of the Indians. Consider the actions of other countries in the same situations. Like the Incas and the Spanish, and on and on. Get over it. No one owes you anything. Get off your ass and contribute to society or get out of the way. I have become very ashamed of my Indian linage through my life as I have seen a very noble race become a slovenly degenerate group of lazy ass alcoholics.

  • Cathy Scholz

    it’s not the fault of the Native population.. who we need to take action against is this corrupt abusive administration..not the Natives.

  • Rowdy

    Hate to have to say it but you are wrong. They do not keep their word at all. They violated their treaties many times and paid for it. They never had the right to demand to begin with. You will see how they will come against you soon. We have been paying all their bills for almost the full 200 years and they maintain a hate to this day. The res south of Tuscon aids the illegals coming across the border onto the res and as such is an assault on the U.S. and they should lose that res because of it. When this comes to a head they will fall upon the white many along with the mescans, negros, and muslimes. Better correct your mental attitude and prepare.

  • Rowdy

    Again I am afraid you are very wrong. There is almost always a treaty involved in the end of any war. It is the conditions under which the fighting will cease. Accept the treaty or continue to get your ass kicked.

  • Rowdy

    No I think it is more like time to pack up all you lazy assed degenerate pieces of crap and ship you back across the bearing straight to where you came from. For two hundred years now we have paid for your co-operation in the building of this land but only get continual grumbling and discontent. You won’t work or contribute so shut up and get out. No more reservations anywhere, If you want to stay here get a job pay your own way and be part of the country.

  • Rowdy

    Oh yes. The American indians had so much respect for human life huh. When the White man arrived the American Indians were continually at war with one another. You were savages with war in your hearts. Don’t try to blow your smoke up my ass. I know who you are and who you were.

  • Rowdy

    Yep just like the mescans. They think if they can take the land back from the U.S. it will take care of them just like it has the white man. It wouldn’t take them 10 years to turn it all back into the barren desert it was before the white man worked generations to build into a thriving land.

  • Rowdy

    Your the racist, bitch!

  • Rowdy

    Bring it on bitch. We are ready and waiting.

    When I was a little boy I saw my father work building really nice houses for the indians on the res, far better than anything I had ever lived in and then saw it take 1 year for the indians to turn these houses into disasters and move the animals into them and they moved back out into their hogans. (a mud shack with dirt floors and no windows) (shit in a bucket and then wash dishes in it after you rinse it out)

  • Rowdy

    I do know I have lived among the indians all my life and have been involved with many different reservations all across this country. They are all so much alike you can hardly tell the difference. I know quite a few GOOD Indians that I have worked and lived with. But those leaching off of the res and government are actually worse than the welfare leaches that exist in many of the other racial groups including whites.

  • Rowdy

    Again I say bring it bitch. You will be sorry AGAIN. This liberal socialist racist crap is coming to an end soon and all you race baiting assholes will get eliminated. Maybe then there will be real peace in America.

  • 4EVERu

    Just listen to yourselves. The same old hatred springs up between Blacks and Whites. And now they throw in the Redman with this “bs.” And what happens? You betcha, all kinds of old attitudes of hatred, name and blame games, things that have nothing to do with what’s taking place. This is a perfect indication of all they need to do to get our eyes off the ball. Before you know it they’ll have another scheme or plot planned while your’re still smoking behind this one. Please,
    Don’t go for the okey doke
    Don’t fall for the tricks
    And jokes
    Keep your head up
    So you can keep full scope.

  • Rowdy

    Tell you the truth I am getting pretty tired of you slutty mouth. Put it to good use where it probably works the best.

  • Can’t stand the bullshit.

    Wow, you’d think you actually lived in chains yourself Ariana.

    My family has only been here for about 100 years, never owned a slave, were poor and worked hard to have what little they did have.
    They were persecuted for being foreign but hold no ill-will towards anyone that tried to keep them from living the ‘dream’ they wanted to live.
    I have on good authority that one of my ancestors was a slave, in Rome…should I hate modern Roman Italians because they kept one of my ancestors in chains so many centuries ago?
    Get your head out of your ass and look forward, not back. What’s happened has happened and no one can change it now, but to think that over 100 years after the fact someone’s great, great grandchildren owe someone else’s great, great grandchildren something for what they did over 100 years ago is not just ludicrous, but shows how entitled modern people believe they are, or maybe, as you accuse white people of doing, it’s just making excuses?
    What happened was not right, not going to argue that because there is no argument… but don’t blame *ME* for something that people I either have, or don’t have, relations to, have done. *I* didn’t do it, wouldn’t do it, and have no problem at all with anyone, anywhere…except those that believe I do, even though I’ve never shown any malice or contempt for anyone or anything.
    And before you insist I’m a racist, please, meet my wife…she’s African American and when we met I did not take notice of her color, just that she’s a beautiful, intelligent, funny woman that I want to spend my entire life with.

  • Rowdy

    Yep I have worked EMS in Gallup, Shiprock, and Farmington. If it hadn’t been for the drunken indians we wouldn’t have had much to do. Sorry state of affairs. Until we shut of the gravy train and make them get off their ass and become contributing members of society it will never change.

    Count on it, they will come against the whites in force when the SHTF, along with the mescans, and muslimes.

  • Rowdy

    Are you kidding me. You leaching pieces of shit have drawn more money from our government (the working people pay) than all the rebuilding of war torn countries all together have. Yet you do nothing with it but set on your ass and get drunk. I have said most of my life “it is time to shut those funds off, make them become a part of America not an anchor on a chain holding us down”

  • DrRGP

    What, exactly, are to trying to say with reference to the story about Riverton, Wyoming? I don’t follow you at all. But since you took the time to write, you apparently believe that you have an important point to make.

  • Rowdy

    Spoken like a true archaeologist. Mostly hype and bullshit mixed in with contrived manufactured facts. Want to discuss hiding and destroying of archeological finds, look what the racist culture of the American indians did when the Kennewick man was found. Scared them to death to think that their sovereignty was at risk. So they used the race card to try to destroy any evidence to the fact that the white man was here thousands of years before the so called native Americans that had migrated here across the bearing straight. The artifacts found here previous to that date were those of the white man. Why didn’t you mention that if your such a prominent archeologist?

  • wlennon

    I am 1/2 American Indian, I am an American first. On my reply to the census bureau, I do not claim Indian as my status. I don’t care for any Government assistance because of my Race. Have you ever been to one of your reservations/towns and see how filthy slums they are, or do you even belong to a Tribe?? The crap shows and goods they sell to visitors, it’s shameful, there is nothing tribal about begging. Do you also think the Muslims who migrated to the U.S. should be allowed to practices Sharia Law, I do not see any difference, do you? I served in the US Marines and have fought for our country and I am a Patriot. Anyone who tries to take my home or land will pay dearly!

    what will happen when the white man leaves.

  • 4EVERu

    What I’m saying is that this just another scheme for us to get at one another, by them using racial tactics. And you can see its affects by the way people are responding by using skin color to level their arguments. But the Obama’s administrations agenda is for us to turn on each other so our focus won’t be on what they are doing or have done. All they need to do is start a racial argument and you just see the chips fly. Lets not get caught up in this foolishness; we are far better than that.

  • CrazyAuntJane

    I don’t understand how the EPA has the authority to dictate this??? I don’t understand how any part of the Fed. government has the right to do this. I guess the Obamanation and his followers think they can do anything they please and overturn any law they choose for any reason. Vote everyone out that has allowed this nonsense to even be discussed!!!

  • tfeqh

    If the people of Wyoming don’t stand up to this blatant tyrannical act, they deserve to be slaves. And I doubt very much if President Obama would send in troops Patricia. With sheriffs, deputies, local law enforcement, National Guard and armed citizens, it would not look good on the evening news. Plus, how many US military would actually go? I suspect, from what I’ve seen, the president doesn’t have much support among our troops. He’d have to call in UN troops; and then you’d really see the wrath of God rain down.

  • ranman948

    Be smart and take it to the court of public opinion! “WE THE PEOPLE” will not allow this administration to deliberately cause an upriseing so they can invoke marsh law! This is the Obama intension and its vital that we all out smart this tyrant for the next 3 years or intel he goes to far and we can impeach or better yet imprison this traitor!

  • Karen

    Not here. Many of the Natives here do all they can to stick it to the rest of us. Riverton has many bars and is known as the meth capital of Wyoming. Every time the non-natives try to open or start programs to change that, the natives close them down through intimidation.

  • Lory Storm

    If the people of Riverton need help, I’m in. Just across the border in Nebraska, can be there in a matter of hours. You’re right, we MUST unite and stand our ground. Just because this may not be your land this time, it will be eventually if they get away with this.

  • happylada

    On what basis should an evolved animal have a uniform set of morals? Its survival of the fittest, red in fang and claw and all that crap.

    Without religion there is NO justification for any morality, rape murder and theft are perfectly OK

  • Nell Marie

    You know, this land was stolen from them years ago, so technically, it is rightfully theirs anyways. Instead of being all angry about it, why don’t you ASK the tribal council (or whom ever you need to speak to) about your house and property? If things don’t turn out how you like, then you will have to figure out something from there. This isn’t cowboys and Indian time anymore, where the
    cowboys slaughter the Natives and steal their land, and I’m sure they aren’t going to turn around on you and slaughter you and take your land. Since this is new info and news, I’m sure things are still getting worked out and such. I’ve been to Riverton (where my daughter’s dad’s family was born and raised) and it’s a very beautiful town with a lot of history to it, and the surrounding reservation. And, I saw more Natives and non-whites, or even mixed race, than I did 100% white people. And, anyways, why bring up what the percentages are there?

  • Nell Marie

    Agreed, Cathy!

  • Nell Marie

    Agreed, Michael! Wish there was a like button on this!

  • Nell Marie

    yup!

  • Nell Marie

    Well, when they (the Native Americans) were being slaughtered and the women raped, ya, they’d eventually lose! They didn’t own guns or drink alcohol until white men came, either. So, you have a useless statement there.

  • Doug

    What does the EPA have to do with this. Some trumped up environmental impact to change the laws for the Indians? I’m not understanding the root explanation.

  • Muckquashim Hopkins

    I did. Those are the “theories” I was referring to. “Kennewick man” was prematurely identified as a Caucasoid, when the remains were re-examined he was found to be mongoloid in origin. The Caucasoid was not the first here. I’m sorry to inform you that your sources are outdated. Any remains found that were originally thought to be Caucasoid or have “blonde” or “red” are now under review and it has been found that the change in hair color was due to “exposure” or “color leaching enzymes” found in those particular soil samples. So as it stands Natives are still the original people of North America. The accounts you were quoting have been amended in the past 2-3 years. Science is always in a constant state of flux and always evolving. It’s just unfortunate that public opinion doesn’t follow a similar path.

  • Muckquashim Hopkins

    Wrong. That theory is outdated. I didn’t realize it was still in circulation actually. There have been numerous finds recently that actually double and even triple that estimate. Kennewick man has been found to be Mongoloid. there is no longer any evidence to substantiate that Europeans hold any stake in Americas (North or South) and had not ventured here until the Vikings. Native Americans are still the ONLY Natives of America. Hate to burst your bubble guy.

  • madman

    fist off Africans were the first known slave owners in fact north Africans enslaved Europeans long before jesus walk this planet and have been enslaving each other till well today and tomorrow and the next 1000 + years so why is it the “white mans falt” all we did was buy a product of your country keeping your economy going did you also know some of the worst slave owners were black. so fuck you, you racist, ignorant, uneducated, dumb bitch. and FYI i come from a viking heritage we killed everyone, took what we wanted and you’ll enjoy this one, only enslaved white people.

  • James Shoup

    Has anyone thought ahead on this issue? This will set a precedent and then which
    city, county, state will we give back to them next? Whose home or estate will be ripped from their family’s grasp to be doled out to some stranger that has no more right to it than the President does. How about Oklahoma or New York? What about Florida or Washington State? All states with high Indian populations and reservations that have been in disputes for years. I for one can see blood-letting coming soon to Riverton and surrounding areas when the government tries to take properties that have been in families for generations. Uncle Sam had better be prepared to send in
    the Regular ARMY because I don’t think the local National Guard units are going
    to force their OWN families from their homes.
    Wyoming has always been known for their rugged individualism so they will not just lie down and let their properties be taken away.

  • Justin Martin

    You do realize it was the Bible that was used to argue for slavery, because it even has a guide on how to take slaves and treat your slaves, or sell your daughter into slavery.

    It says how you are supposed to slaughter everyone that isn’t Christian and doesn’t convert.

    You truly are an ignorant one Ariana. Before you spew your hate try reading a fucking book. 99% of all lawsuits claiming to be by the tribes affected have nothing to do with those tribes, if they even represent any tribe. The EPA doesn’t have the power to do this anyway since they can not, nor does the state of WY recognize them as able to, give entire cities to the reservation. If they did people in the San Francisco/Oakland areas better start packing their stuff because it won’t belong before it belongs to the Indians.

    So many people’s comments show they have taken the bait and turned against one another, American against American. PLEASE step back and notice that the federal agency which made this decision has NO AUTHORITY to make such a decision. The EPA is the Environmental Protection Agency. It has NO basis over which to decide matters of treaties with American Indian tribes. NONE. The agency which would have that authority is the BIA, the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

    That the EPA would spend one cent of taxpayer money pursuing this total red herring is a crime against the American people. Heads should be rolling in the EPA. Several top jobs should be vacated, and the Justice Department should be bringing charges of malfeasance among other things against the perpetrators of this fraud. Sadly, Obama’s Justice Dept. has brought the opposite, and it seems no one in his administration has ever read the Constitution nor the applicable Code of Federal Regulations.

    Which leaves it up to us, where true power actually lies, to bring our chaotic, corrupt and criminal Executive Branch back under the power of the Constitutional authority by which they have been created. Turning against one another is the worst possible reaction; even lethargy and apathy are better. Please protest loudly and frequently in every forum where it’s appropriate to make this issue, the un-Constitutional and criminal malfeasance of the EPA, a national priority to correct.

    Ignore the taxpayer-funded trolls who spend their time churning negative emotions on the Internet. Focus on correcting the egregiously bad behavior of the government.

    My Native American friends and neighbors: Please know that in my comments above, I am not passing judgment on the land dispute issue itself, but only on the outlaw agency which has seized power NOT granted to it by Congress, nor by the States, nor by the People.

  • Rocky

    Federal “benefit” systems are not designed to accomplish what their publicized mission; they’re actually designed to perpetuate dependency and decay among the minority groups which are targeted. If you care about improving the quality of life of American Indians, blacks, hispanics, and other targeted groups, help them begin weaning themselves off the federal “benefits” programs.

    It begins with changing the thought process, from “How can I get more ‘benefit’ money?” to “How can I become self-reliant so that I don’t need this ‘benefit’ anymore?” I realize there are many people who actually DO need help, at least for a period in their lives. I also have observed the effects of long-term dependency on “aid” or “benefits”. Heaven help you if you think of such money as “entitlements” because if you think you’re entitled to other people’s money, you’re already drowning in the soup.

    Native Americans are truly entitled, in the literal sense of the word, to the lands which the applicable treaty promised to them. Tragically, the non-Indian migrants into the traditional Indian lands frequently violated treaties, weakened the tribal people through diseases, fraud and isolation, then coerced new treaties which robbed the Indians of their land. This makes it very difficult, even for an honest, unbiased legal scholar, to determine which treaty should be the controlling (applicable) treaty for any given tribe and any specific area of land.

    Nevertheless, I applaud people who hold their tribal identity with pride, who live on their tribal reservation and work to make it a better place. Restoring the natural environment, replanting native plants and reviving native medicines and other traditions; all these activities and many more can help reservation Indians regain their self-reliance and self-esteem.

    If you are such a person, please consider this: Just because the government offers you money doesn’t mean you should accept it. You might feel that you are punishing taxpayers and the government by taking their money, but please look at what dependency has done to your people! Study the history of the notoriously corrupt federal Indian agents and the many ways in which they victimized and infantilized the tribes for which they were supposed to be caring.

  • Rocky

    Ariana, every outrage against Indians happening today stems from their dependence on federal government programs. Kick the government OUT of Indian schools; then if there are problems, you can solve them within the tribal government instead of feeling victimized and helpless.

    Hi My name is Bruno Rico’ just want to share my experience with the world on how i got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 7years with 2kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that she filed for divorce… I tried my best to make her change her mind & stay with me cause i loved her with all my heart and didn’t want to loose her but everything just didn’t work out… she moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used roots and herbs… Within 7 days she called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our third child. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience cause I strongly believe someone out there need’s it… You can email him via [email protected] Don’t give up just yet, the different between ‘Ordinary’ & ‘Extra-Ordinary’ is the ‘Extra’ so make extra effort to save your marriage/relationship if it’s truly worth it. you can also call (Dr Eromosale) on +2347034673139.

Here is a new twist ..why don’t the whites, blacks and Indians rise up and uproot these crooked ass politicians out of here no matter their damn color. No one should or be allowed to take property from anyone white or black and etc. The Indians got their asses kicked in a war against this country, blacks got free from slavery in this country and fought in all wars for this country. Even with this said no white in that town should have their property taken from them just because some pussy willows with no balls and nothing to lose deems it so. I am black so don’t get it twisted good ole boy…your bullshit of lynching and senseless killings are over…if there is ever another civil war in America everyone would lose….then those nations sitting at our borders would be licking their chops and invade us all…..then what.? That means all the whites and blacks and some Indians who fought for our total freedom would have died for nothing just because some bigot gets in control and loses his head….aint happening partner…we had better unite against the real enemy and keep our country intact. Bad as America can be I will still fight again like I did in Vietnam to preserve our freedoms….good or bad we are still the baddest ass nation/country on earth. So lets stop this killing each other shit and get these pussies out of office. Why don’t you get those so called good ole boys together with other loyal citizens and lets unite and kick some real ass?

    They could install marshal law and say they are protecting the Indians.

    I am part Indian and the monstrosities were endless on the indian people by the government so that the sorry ass government took over the vast land…we are supposed to say American Indian now?…f u …I fully agree with standing up and fight the government …your 10,000 pissed off (white) Wyoming people might come in handy with all the non-American Muslims/illegals that one day the same government is trying to replace Americans with…KARMA sucks so pick up that gun and lets fight the same problem that the Indians faced …But yea The government will make 10,000 pissed off (white) Wyoming people move off the land ,and into FEMA camps now that the traitor in chief has Chinese/Russian boots on the ground IN the USA and using the UN on gun control..they are just buying time….

    . My ‘basic history’ in my comment to trista was factual. Scotland was an independent kingdom until 1707 because it won both wars of independence, which obviously means England never conquered it. If they did conquer it there would be no words ‘ United Kingdom’ or ‘Great Britain’ as Scotlands kingdom would have already been absorbed into Englands kingdom and there would be no independent kingdoms to unite.
    Yes, Westmiinster obviously controls England, exactly the same as England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

  • Stevey Irwin

    Hey, look up the Scottish Wars of Independence, Scotland wasn’t conquered, it won both wars against the English. Robert the Bruce and Thomas Randolph won them. Meaning the strange misconception that it was ‘conquered’ looks insane.

  • amiciLatinae

    I do not understand what legal writ the EPA is using to evict people from the Riverton area. Did the title companies warn buyers of the fact that the land was owned by Indian Reservations? Did real estate brokers? Will the banks that hold the mortgages have to return money to the people losing property? Can the EPA remove everyone in the USA from land if it thinks Indians owned it first? How are the Indians able to show prior ownership of the property in question? Is Wyoming a Democrat State and the people do not care if the EPA is evicting residents? What the heck is going on?

  • Justin Igger

    Ariana, youre a disgrace to all of those white people who gave their lives to give your ancestors freedom; wether it be the underground railroad or the civil war. You need to lose that chip on your shoulder as it was your own race that sold blacks into slavery. Dont think white people havent been slaves throughout history either. We simply dont use it as a crutch the way blacks do.

  • hrtfire

    First of all lets take your opening line. It is NOT Obama’s EPA. It is our EPA. It is a government agency. They work for us. Second – the “Indians”, aka Native AMERICANS, did not ask for their 1 million acres back. What they asked for, before Obama was president by the way, was for the right to monitor the air quality on their reservation. The law passed by congress in 1905 did not redefine the reservation boundaries but opened up the land to non-native settlement (squatters rights?) So basically a federal government institution took away the land of US Citizens with the stroke of a pen. Sound familiar? So if congress can unilaterally take land away from citizens where will it stop. Don’t for a minute think if your non native, non mexican, non jewish, non irish, non chinese, non japanese etc., basically if your white, that you will not be the target if you get in the way of or are in possession of what those in power want. However, on the plus side of living on a reservation, you don’t have to pay property taxes. And residents living on the reservation do receive state and local services. Also, keep in mind that many native americans have served and are serving in the military. In fact Chief Washakie, one of the most significant chiefs of the Eastern Shoshone Tribe, one of the two tribes on this reservation, was buried with full military honors. The have fought for and are still fighting for your right to spread your hate and fear through your failure to adequately research all the facts. Speaking without knowing is called psittacism, but is a practice not confined to parrots. Check our country’s history and you will find many instances where our government has oppressed people – white and non white. In fact look at the side bar on this web site and see all the stories where our government oppresses people. Sort of in a nondiscriminatory way. I know all of these things because I have studied the history of this nation and this area and I live on this reservation. But i’m not native and I don’t fear them at all. I proudly work with them and for them. And until we ALL stand together united, native and non native, white, black, brown, red or yellow then those in power will continue to oppress us.

  • hrtfire

    First of all the reservation is under “federal” control for law enforcement. Laws, both local, state and federal are enforced by 2 federal agencies – FBI and BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs). Any crimes committed on the reservation are heard and tried in FEDERAL court and convicted violators are sent to FEDERAL prison. So no, it’s not the wild west. Second the total population of native americans living on the reservation is 7000, Not the 1000 per your reckoning. And that’s only those ON the reservation. Not all are living on the reservation. So them against the citizens of Riverton only – probably not gonna be the ass whippin’ your picturing. Get your facts straight before you post so your ignorance is harder to recognize.

  • WeHaveDoneNOTHINGToYou

    I’m “white” and part American indian. I have never TAKEN LAND FROM ANYONE. My father has taken land from NO ONE. My grandfather has taken land from NO ONE. My great grandfather has taken land from NO ONE. Before that, my great-great grandfathers came from England & Ireland. I also have American Indian relatives but they “don’t count” because my skin tone is too light to be considered a “native” of this area. 100+ years of my family being here doesn’t count.

    So who is stealing from who again? Should I keep apologizing for things I DID NOT DO AND MY FAMILY DID NOT DO?

    Should people with light skin continue to be punished and held accountable for things the ONE PERCENT of filthy rich, light skinned people (SOUND FAMILIAR ANYONE?) did long, LONG before they were born?

    It’s perfectly clear that white people are the new “niggers” in America. “Whites don’t have to sit at the back of the bus, just everyone else who isn’t white gets to sit in the front ;)” “Equality”… for everyone but whites. “Equal rights” for everyone EXCEPT whites.

    If I was a land owner and they tried to outright STEAL my land, I would let them have it… after dumping a few hundred gallons of gas, oil and god knows what else on it so that it couldn’t be used to the next 1,000 years. They sure would have fun cleaning it up wouldn’t they?

  • jgreen

    So, your answer is, to take what you want if you’re strong enough. Might makes right. Empire above all. We have been indoctrinated since birth that the USA is virtuous, benificent, the guys with the white hat who only kill the bad guys. We cannot reverse the wrongs of the whole world, but we do have a chance to at least look at our history and try to do what will bring a long awaited justice for the ones who were here first. You can’t move forward in peace with injustice unresolved in your past.

  • Chris

    Good for you Randall Ritchie! I support you 100%. This land belonged to indigenous natives and it was taken from them. The U.S. government lied, cheated, coerced, tricked, and broke treaties time and time again. Now it is your time to claim what is rightfully yours. To any out there who disagree, take a college Native American History course.

    im native american too and i know some land was stole some land was traded for and some land was bought and the only race obama looks down on more the white people are the native americans if this is true it is just him trying to make people riot so he can put marshal law into effect wake up native lands have there own laws but they also have to go by federal law too and if you look at all native own and run land most of them are run down because tribal leaders can come up make you move so them or a family member or a friend that likes your land can move in tribal leaders are no better then congress and i know there some really good tribal leaders out there but im tired of people acting like the white man made blacks slaves stole the land from the native people then spent the next 400 years holding them down there was good and bad on all sides and all sides have blood on there hands

  • Earl Stanley Burley

    Let us start with the constitution, and by all means read into it the true meaning. i would suggest some very good reading in ARTICLE 6, It has called TREATIES the” SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND ” If the spoils go to the conqueror, Why then was it necessary to make treaties with my people ? A very famous man once said ” That in order for a man to own a man he must storm the citadel of the gates of heaven and wrest from the bosom of God, the title and deed to that man ” a statement used in the historic case of Standing bear v/s crook a Ponca Chief who won a writ of ha beaus corpus or the right to be considered a person under the law. that man who made that statement was Fredrick Douglass who was born a slave and spent his life fighting for the rights of humanity. there is a moral obligation to correct the multitudes of injustices perpetrated against people of color in this great nation, it is my feeling that the Creator has spoken and that the choice has been given to this world, The pendulum has swung and freedom shall be the choice of this nation !!!!

  • RonKeffer

    I am not sure you got my point. I love the indians, I know more than most because the indian reservations that were in my neighborhood were people trying to cope with the limitations of the government. It was and still is a roller coaster for the indians. The government gets someone in there that tries to help the indian, and before you know it another politician comes in and goes the opposite direction. I am so happy that the indian have their casinos. For once they are rising above the poverty level the white man has put them in. My statement was, you gave up your guns, was made because I do not want to give up my guns, and will probably die trying. after the guns are gone, you are at the mercy of those that took the guns. Our government has been corrupt for many years. With the dictator we have in office, it will take us many years to get back to the freedom we fought for. God Bless all indians, they got the short end of the stick.

  • vlad the impaler

    we are making the same mistake ,letting too many Indians come to America Asian jews.

  • Cass

    Randall, you were never screwed out of anything. Before there was gpvernance in North America, American Indians took land by means of knives and bow and arrows. They were brutal killing savages who took land by force. The U.S. government paid for it! I too am an American Indian. Just smart.

  • Hello Hello

    NO, the details here are incorrect.

    Federal law still applies in full force – the question is whether state law applies

    IN addition, there is no problem with any deeds to any law. Everyone agrees the land was sold properly.

    The land was sold properly to white men. The question is whether the town – is on the reservation or not. So the situation would be white men owning land on a reservation.

    The land is still in the United States – since there is a provision in Wyoming’s State Constitution which states clearly that Indian reservations are NOT within the boundaries of Wyoming, this ruling puts Riverton outside of Wyoming’s boundaries.

    Its not nearly as bad as one might think

  • gripper2

    Well, I don’t know about now, but I lived there for a couple of years in the late ’70’s and there were, in fact, no blacks in that city. The majority were white, but there were quite a few Indians as well.
    One thing that always had me curious was the fact that Riverton was actually sitting on the Wind River Indian Reservation, but was not under Indian rule.
    So, Even though I don’t think it should be turned over to the Indians, I do know that it is on Indian land.

  • gripper2

    I lived in Riverton for a couple of years and it is a nice little town with little crime. Kind of a culture shock when I moved there from San Diego when I was in junior high school. It was pretty clean, quiet, well managed and safe.
    I can’t help but imagine what it would be like if Riverton were actually handed over to the Indians and non-Indians were forced out. I have a pretty good idea based upon what I had experienced while I was there though.
