This proposed settlement is a bad deal for Indian Country - they are trying to settle claims which have never been litigated. This is a good opportunity for the plaintiffs and Administration to reconsider their hardline stance of moving the settlement without any changes. Clearly, this settlement cannot be passed without more buy-in from individual Indians and affected Tribal Governments. The creation of the proposed second class needs to be dropped and the $2 billion that is earmarked for the BIA needs to go to a permanent fund for the injured parties - individual Indians and Tribes - for our use to repatriate and repair our peoples and homelands.
