Hard Time: Tribal elder says military helped him escape from 'prison-camp' life on the Colville Reservation

“I saw a land up there that I knew I was familiar with it; but I saw it when it was undeveloped,” he said. “There was no sign of civilization there. It was the bare, raw land; it was primordial.
