Before the first European set foot on North America, there were over 950 Native American tribes all on land that they fought for and claimed. Today, there remain over 550 federally recognized Native American tribes in the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii. Most of these tribes are on a portion of their original land, but much of that land has been taken from them by the States and the United States. What remains is called a "Reservation". This Bill is vitally important to Indian people in America who ALL should be allowed to live productively on their original and historic lands. However, that right was taken from them many, many years ago when many were moved off their original lands and "relocated". What is now Oklahoma was at one time called "Indian Country" and today many tribes are allocated lands in Okahoma as their land held in trust by the Federal Government. Other tribes such as the Lakota, Navajo, Apache, Cherokee, etc., still hold a portion of their historic lands, held in trust for them by the United States. So this Bill is very very important to Indian people to correct the horrendous Salazar case in 2009. Those who voted against this Bill, including my Rep from Tennessee, who is nothing more than a waterboy for Donald Trump, have ZERO knowledge of Indian history and Indian law , and the importance of Native Americans being able to reclaim some of their lands. Fortunately, the Bill passed by a large margin in the House and hopefully in the Senate too.
