Is There a New War on Indian Country?

 


Over the past week, two proposals have surfaced that could have profound impacts on Indian Country, and they likely would not be for the better.

The first proposal surfaced on October 20 when a Utah congressman introduced legislation to terminate all Interior Department jurisdiction over federal recognition of Indian tribes. The second came a day later when a major candidate for President announced that he wants to relocate the Department of the Interior out of Washington, insuring isolation from both other government agencies and Congress.

Either of these proposals alone should be cause for concern for anyone involved in Indian affairs. Taken together, there should be cause for alarm.
