Burns Paiute Tribe Sounds Off About Oregon Standoff At Malheur Wildlife Center
Burns Paiute tribal leaders are concerned that participants at the Oregon standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge are going to steal Native American artifacts at the facility. Leaders maintain their “cultural rights” were respected by the government staffers, but worry important tribal materials inside could be destroyed during the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) protest.
Members of the Burns Paiute tribe are calling for Ammon Bundy and the other members of the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom group to go home. “We don’t want you here,” Oregon Native American leaders said in a public message to the Malheur wildlife refuge protesters, CNN notes.
