President Barack Obama, addressing a tribal nations conference at the White House last week, announded that the U.S. government is now supporting the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People, which includes a sweeping declaration that "indigenous peoples" have a right to lands and resources they traditionally occupied or "otherwise used."
"Indigenous peoples have the right to the lands, territories and resources which they have traditionally owned, occupied or otherwise used or acquired," says the U.N. resolution.
The Bush administration had declined to support the resolution.
At the White House Tribal Nations Conference, Obama reminded the group that last year he signed a resolution passed by Congress that finally recognizes the sad and painful chapters in our shared history--a history too often marred by broken promises and grave injustices against the First Americans, he said.
The president added that no statement can undo the damage that was done, but he said the resolution can help reaffirm the principles that should guide our future.

Hmm. Me think brown eyes speak with forked tongue. Him only come her to make lotta wampum in political capital.

Well then, I'd say we have a documented case of CONFLICT OF INTEREST.
When you lose the fight you lose the right.
So does this mean that if some indian comes in your house and says it is his by virtue of it sitting on some land he thinks is yours that you have to quietly move out?
So... Muslims should be forced back to their traditional lands too?
This is pure communism. Implies the taking of property to reapportion as the state sees fit.
The resolution sounds like it came straight from the mouth of Van Jones. The above quote did.
Does this mean the British and other European nations can evict the Muslims back to their turd world countries?
My Crow name is One Who Helps People Throughout the Land, Obama said...”
Does that include us indigenous Texans? Decendents of the Tejanos?
Well, let’s see, the gubmint has broken just about every treaty it made with the Indians. How’s that workin out for them.
I wonder if Obama is aware that the land that his house is built on in Chicago originally had a sweat lodge on it that Chief Pontiac and his tribe used?
I don’t know about Obama but I was born here so I’m indigenous. In public school I was taught that 10,000 years or so ago the American Indian came from Mongolia across the land bridge into Alaska then down.
I’d like for one of those UN a-holes or the top a-hiole in the WH point to one land in the world that’s currently occupied by the only people who ever occupied that land.
He’s such a f*ing tool its unbelievable.
There goes Hawaii.
I bet Hussein doesn’t want to charge them the horrendous property taxes us Crackers have to pay.
Oh wait, Hussein will make the Crackers pay the taxes for them. SNAFU.
