Barack Obama traveled to a Native American reservation in North Dakota, his first visit as US president to "Indian Country," where he focused Friday on education and economic development.
The president, accompanied by First Lady Michelle Obama, visited the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe reservation in the central far northern state.
The Sioux, which include the Lakota and Dakota nations, are the people of Sitting Bull, the chief famous for his victory over the US cavalry in the 1876 Battle of Little Bighorn. (AFP)

Even when we gave them tools to work the land, they hired the white guys to do the work.

Lying coyote dung
“walking eagle” (Too full of sh*t to fly)

Hunter-gatherers for the most part.
I had a wonderful, elderly Seneca Indian teach me Indian Beadwork. She said the children are not disciplined and that any that grow up to be decent go to Canada.
Living next door to a sympathetic settler society does change things for the Indians and not always for the good. If they had to be living like nomads in a pristine wilderness, they would have to know the virtues of work, perseverance, etc. But hypotheticals aside that is where they are. Ultimately faith in God is what they need, same as the rest of mankind.
My Grandfather—an old Wyoming rancher— had little use for Indians. he said all the good Indians were dead—they fought for their land and died in battle—only the cowards and culls went on the reservations to produce the ones we see today. Still, that was along time ago. The dependency on the reservation did a lot to kill their spirit—no wonder they turned to drink. This doesn’t count all Native People—I know many tribes who have done well—The Papagos, the Choctaw, Seneca, but they did it without the Government.
Native people are quick at spotting a phoney—They can sense when someone is speaking with a forked tounge.
Doesn’t Bowe Bergdahl live in North Dakota? Wonder if he’s visiting Bob.
Choctaw Tribe government subsidy
Choctaw Tribe government subsidy
I thought they lived in Idaho.
Well, I was wrong, I guess.
From his wikipedia page:
Early life and education
Bergdahl was born on March 28, 1986, in Sun Valley, Idaho, to Jani (née Larson) and Robert “Bob” Bergdahl, a commercial truck driver. Bergdahl has an older sister, Sky Albrecht, and was home schooled by his mother in Hailey, Idaho. The family attended Sovereign Redeemer Presbyterian Church, an Orthodox Presbyterian Church. He received a GED certificate through the College of Southern Idaho in his early 20s. As an adult, Bergdahl studied and practiced fencing and martial arts before switching to ballet classes at the Sun Valley Ballet School in Ketchum, Idaho. He never owned a car; he rode his bicycle everywhere. He spent time in a Buddhist monastery between 2007 and 2008.
Cash deal?? Probably cuz I think Muzzies like to deal in cash.

Stands With The Fisters
I think the First Nation people have taken it in the butt from the U.S. gov. for many years.
While there Obama should ask the Indians how their open door immigration policy worked out for them.
Native American on many reservations live on the government dole and have no incentive whatsoever to be gainfully employed. Alcoholism and drug addiction, especially to meth, is endemic.
Some tribes are making big strides in improving things for tribal members often with casino revenues rather than government handouts. The Santee Band of Sioux in South Dakota and the Ojibwe people in northern Minnesota are good examples. I had the privilege of teaching at the Cass Lake tribal college in Minnesota for a semester and gained great respect for the tribe's efforts not only to provide a higher education opportunity for their members but to preserve their culture and language.
