The whole Indian reservation thing is just stupid. They have no claim to any US soil, they lost. Get over it.

apparently you have not read your US history. There are multiple treaties that were signed and approved that say otherwise

While I agree, the last Olympics in Canada pretty much telegraphed where this is all headed. IMO

I actually like American Indian traditions to a point. I’m not willing to capitulate on the alter of the U. N. and other P. C. groups to surrender my traditions.

Frankly, that’s what our existence is all about these days.

This S needs to stop. A bit off the subject, but this is a serious matter.

Most Reservations were established as the result of treaty arrangements. While it can be argued they lost, the treaties were peace treaties agreed to by Tribal representatives and representatives of the US Government. Often these arrangements were in lieu of armed conflict.

Not every Tribe got the same deal, not every tribe engaged the US in warfare, but the claim to that soil was established (or supposedly maintained) by treaty..
