@ppotts: What a bunch of bull. Look at those whom the federal government "helps." They are treated like children and wards of the state. I work with many Indians in Montana, including those who left the reservation. Those who left are BY FAR better off than those who subsist on the crumbs the government scatters before them.
Original inhabitants? Says who? How far back do we go to establish "first?" Tenure? You mean that laughable liberal notion that has ruined university instruction and kept lazy teachers drawing paychecks. You liberals are ridiculous the way you can completely ignore you total failure in issues by bathing in your good intentions. Liberals ruin everything they touch, especially individual liberty.
