I grew up in the southeast of the United States. This meant I did not grow up knowing or even meeting any native Americans. Since moving to the west I have been appalled about how little I knew about our First Nations as well as the systemic measures by which they remain oppressed. If this bill allows for a truly native dominated management and steering of this research, I think it is great and necessary. If this is simply another research project run by white people "for" native people, then it will be misguided, antiquated, and I'll informed. Thanks for listening.
