Yeah I know but I was reading one of the tribe papers from somewhere in the Dakotas last week.
Somewhere up there where they already rooked the folks for the coal on the reservation they have found oil.
It's in Federal court now til they can determine whats what about ownership.
The gubbermint is claiming the people dont own the land, but-but-but. However if the injins do own it, they only own the surface rights of the land itself.
I keep reading when I have time trying to find out who is getting paid for the coal they are already mining but it dont say.
The tribe has 3 full blooded Harvard educated Sioux bucks in full war dress in the court room pix.
The atty for the state protested them dressing like that, on grounds that it was distracting the case.
The federal judge said they were wearing thir own heritage cloths and were not trying to side-show the court so he allowed the cloths.
