Bemidji Pioneer: Beltrami Commissioners opt to administer buffer law program

AP sources: Senate GOP health bill would reshape Obama law

WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans would cut Medicaid, end penalties for people not buying insurance and erase a raft of tax increases as part of their long-awaited plan to scuttle President Barack Obama's health care law, congressional aides and lobbyists say. After weeks of closed-door meetings that angered Democrats and some Republicans, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell planned to release the proposal Thursday. The package represents McConnell's attempt to quell criticism by party moderates and conservatives and win the support he...

Interior chief Ryan Zinke wants to shed 4,000 staffers in budget cuts

WASHINGTON – Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke told lawmakers Wednesday that he plans to shrink his department’s sprawling workforce by 4,000 employees – about 8 percent of the full-time staff – as part of budget cuts to downsize the government’s largest public lands agency. Zinke, testifying before a Senate panel on the White House’s proposed budget for the Department of the Interior for fiscal 2018, said he would rely on a combination of attrition, reassignments and buyouts to make the cuts.

Interior Secretary Attempts to Justify Deep Cuts to Native American Education Program

The man charged with stewarding the nation's public lands was called before a Senate panel on Tuesday, where he attempted to defend the Trump administration's call for massive cuts to his own Interior Department, particularly programs for Native Americans.

Should Indian Nations Fear the Return of Termination Policy?

If anything brings Indian nations together to rally for treaty and self-government rights, it is the threat of termination or the return of termination policy. Few Americans have a clear understanding of Native American history and policy. And few have any background in the history and legal supports for tribal self-government and the role of Indian nations within the U.S. federal system. The present administration tends to view people of color as freeloading ethnic or minority groups. The actions to reduce federal aid and support for poor...

New Passports for Native Americans

The brazen nerve of President Trump in having the painting of Andrew Jackson, not so affectionately known as “the Indian Killer,” moved into the Oval Office for prominent display set my mind working on why this would happen now. I have thought long and hard about a fitting response to the pain caused by the newly displayed Jackson painting in the oval office. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/new-passports-for-native-americans_us_594a...
