  •  Far be it from me to disrespect Native people (5+ / 0-)

    I'd like all the treaties that were signed to be carried out in full. I'm just trying to think through what the courts might consider to be practical, and how we might be able to get the Federal government to at least give back SOME of the land stolen from Native American tribes. And if you ask me, any Federal land that was stolen from Native American tribes should be returned. No private owners even need to be bought out, in such cases. I can't think of anything more satisfying, just, and symbolic than restoring Mount Rushmore to the Lakota. Well, other than giving back every bit of land that was stolen from every tribe, and sadly, that won't happen, and maybe can't.
