I'm guessing a casino?

There are over 400 Native American gaming establishments in the US alone.

Annual stipends have ranged from $90,000 to $120,000 per adult.

Get with the times.



What does that have to do with an oil pipeline that may pollute the environment?


The question was asked, "what about the children".

I answered it.

Pollution is a different subject.


It isn't. If children live on areas that are polluted by oil companies that build a pipeline that their parents had no say in, them building a casino ain't gonna help those children.

It would help them relocate.

remember this?

just another deflective tactic to get people to rally behind a move forward on getting the pipeline controversy ok'd.

turns out in reality that the pipeline project will only employ 35 or a few more.

the orange dude is an expert liar at best.

Bundled with the pipeline moves, Mr. Trump took action to streamline what he called the “incredibly cumbersome” federal permitting process and to expedite environmental reviews for infrastructure projects such as building bridges and roads.

He also signed an order promoting the use of American-made steel for oil pipelines.

“It’s going to put a lot of workers, a lot of steelworkers, back to work,” said the president. “We will build our own pipeline. We will build our own pipes. … Like we used to in the old days.”

We’re bringing manufacturing back to the United States big-league. We’re reducing taxes very substantially, and we’re reducing unnecessary regulations,” Mr. Trump told executives from General Motors Co., Ford Motor Co. and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. “We’re going to make the process much more simple for the auto companies and for everybody else who wants to do business in the United States.”

Native Americans march to White House against Dakota pipeline

March 10 2017

Native American groups staged a march to the White House Friday against the construction of a controversial oil pipeline which they fear could lead to the desecration of tribal lands.

WASHINGTON — Hundreds of activists rallied outside the White House on Friday and even erected a teepee in front of President Trump’s new Washington hotel in a rapidly fading bid by Native Americans to stop construction of the Dakota Access pipeline.

Participants say the protests against the pipeline have been successful even if it gets built because they’ve called attention to the issue of Native American sovereignty.

The final, disputed section of the pipeline would pass below a reservoir that provides drinking water to the Standing Rock Sioux and Cheyenne River Sioux reservations.

The tribes and their supporters say the $3.8 billion pipeline threatens their religious rights and water supply.

A federal judge this week declined to halt construction on the final section of the project, opening the way for oil to begin flowing through it as early as next week.

Tom Goldtooth, executive director of the Indigenous Environmental Network, said Texas-based developer Energy Transfer Partners would ultimately pay a price for disregarding the tribes’ religious beliefs.

“We have not lost this battle,” Goldtooth said. “Nothing will ever go right for those corporations. It’s only a matter of time before it will fall flat on its face.”

Despite rain and occasional snow, hundreds of people took part in the march, which began at the Army Corps of Engineers headquarters. The agency manages the Missouri River and last month gave Energy Transfer Partners permission to finish the project. Protesters also erected a teepee outside Trump’s hotel.

"As indigenous people, when something happens to one of us, it happens to all of us," said Cassandra Begay, 31, a member of the Navajo tribe who is half-Native American and half-Mexican. "We’re here today to send a message that we, as human beings, are indigenous to the earth. The earth is our mother. Your relationship with the mother is forever. The earth gives us our water, our air, our food, our shelter. We need to protect it."

Another demonstrator, Sheryl Romero, 39, a full-blood Native American from New Mexico, said, "It’s not about money — it’s about our lives.”

The rally revealed divisions among pipeline opponents. Dave Archambault, the chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, was booed and heckled by some in the crowd who called him “DAPL Dave” and accused him of being complicit with the bulldozing of a camp where thousands of protesters lived.

“We are not defeated. We are not victims,” Archambault said. “An obstacle is also an opportunity.”

Among the rallygoers were number of non-Native Americans who demonstrated in a sign of solidarity.

"This land came from our brothers and sisters who were here first," said Ardeth Platte, 81, a Catholic nun and retired high school principal from Baltimore. "This is their land, and we’ve taken so much from them. Now it behooves us to stand with them as they’re trying to protect water, land and air."

dove

many treaties have been violated by (our) u s government regarding the indigenous peoples of this land. yet the current government turns a blind eye to past agreements and promises made and signed. in other words these people are continuing to be the victims of blatant genocide by the current governmental leaders and the president.

man seems the liar leaders sitting in the white house are the neo fathers of lies in the name of $$$$.

i stand in support of those who oppose the dakota access pipeline.

...and why should they have to relocate? Your answers are vague and short. What is your whole point?
