This Bill is illegal, unethical and immoral. It does NOTHING to honor my people. It strips us of our Indigenous rights and treats us as Children to a Federal Government that has done nothing to ensure us of a survival of our heritage. It strips our lands away from us, denies us our hunting and fishing rights and was "agreed" to by ONE tribe out of the 13 that constitute our Nation. It is an abomination and nothing more than ethnic cleansing, homogenizing our diversified cultural traditions to one, take it or leave it, future. This is a bad bill which honorable people should neither endorse nor sign. Read it, see what we are supposedly "willingly" giving up! What Indian would willingly trade their heritage for such a paltry return? See my letter at http://northcoastoregon.com. I am the great-grandson of Chief George Charley, last of the Chief's on the lower Columbia to challenge the US government to fish our traditional grounds. This bill does nothing to honor him or his memory.
