house Bill H.R. 1491

Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians Land Affirmation Act of 2017

    While is don’t see why this land is to be “held in trust” for “the benefit of” I do agree that it was theirs to start with. The very least we can possibly do is return some of that land.

    What is the purpose of this? Is the Tribe in favor of this? I need more info.

    This is a small, almost negligible, step in restoring the sanctity of the land for Natives. Most Americans have little to no knowledge or understanding of how integral the land is to Native People's existence.

    Does the government really need to step in here? If I want to have some land I buy it. Who cares who your ambassadors are or were. You have the same opportunities as any other American.

    The definitive word here is “gaming “. The revenue from “gaming “ has the potential of being beneficial to the tribe. The government taking the position of defending against any law suits that may be made as a result of the acquisition of this land is wise. Yes I am in favor of returning the land to the native Americans what was rightfully theirs to begin with.
