An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Native American Sovereignty attached to Stimulus Bill

422 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

We are asking you to intervene on our behalf. Native Americans have suffered greatly. The treaties and agreements broken. What was done to Native Americans would never be tolerated by any country today. An entire race of people were moved off of lands, the lands their ancestors occupied for 1,000's of years. The land in question is in Sovereign Indian boundaries located in Oklahoma. The land exchange was recorded as a binding land contract that specifically stated, the contract was forever, that no State would interfere or place laws or restrictions upon these Sovereign Indian lands. The contract stated only Tribal Authority would take place upon this land. The recent U.S. Supreme Court case Oklahoma vs. McGirt ruling reaffirmed this. These lands, and the Sovereignty of the Indian Tribes upon their lands, must be upheld. Please do not allow Senator Inhofe to attach a rider on the stimulus bill that will disestablish the Okla. Five Tribes reservations just recognized in the Oklahoma vs. McGirt decision.
