Proposed budget for Indian Health Services won't treat Native American patients equally

Early treaties with the federal government were generally done in good faith by both tribal nations and the emerging United States. But by the mid 1800s, treaties more often than not were Bad Acts and Bad Paper, explicitly designed to deceive tribal nations and remove their lands, reflected in the boundaries of present day Indian Country.

This shift in policy was one of the first in the complex history of relationships between the various tribal nations and the United States government, documented by periods of autonomy and self-determination, assimilation and termination. As result of these of interactions between the United States government and tribal nations, a unique federal trust responsibility was established.
