Trump Enemy to Indian Country

Trump Enemy to Indian Country


Terrance H. Booth, Sr. – Neesh Wil Gum – Tsimshian

Trump Administration has drawn the lines as enemy to Indian Country, USA.  He favors opening up  oil exploration and by executive order continued operation to two controversial pipelines that Native People directly oppose.  No regard to honor Native American Treaties and passage of bills go without consultation from Indian Country, USA.

The Republican Congress in 2016 breached Federal Tribal Law with no hearing or consultation stealing Sacred Tribal Lands from San Carlos Apache Tribe and targeting a Tribe in Utah taking away more tribal lands.  Department of Interior has been silent on trust responsibility which is written Federal Law supposedly to protect tribal lands and tribal people. 

Since the US House of Representatives read the US Constitution it needs to read “DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE POLICY ON INDIAN SOVEREIGNTY
” - Janet Reno
 Attorney General, Date: June 1, 1995 , which clearly defines Federal Trust Responsibility.  The Republican Congress has breached Tribal Sovereignty, Tribal Trust Responsibility with no federal agency that is obligated to protect all tribes did not intervene on Congressional passage of taking Sacred Tribal lands from San Carlos Apache or spoke up to stop TrumpCare from taking billions from Indian Health Care. It is evident that Trump is not making American Great for he is taking from programs that serves the neediest of American to benefit his rich friends or those that funded his campaign and giving them tax breaks.

I have written to make all tribal reservations to be Trump-Proof or Government-Proof which is a step to protect our Tribal Sovereignty and or Trust Responsibility and see that no more Tribal Lands are taken away from our Tribal People and Congress no longer steal any tribal lands.  For the safety of all our Tribal People immediate action must be taken to prevent any unjust action on part of Trump or Congress for the benefit of all our People that deserve to live in a safe tribal environment and live to see our culture, tribal songs and dances and our tribal history makes it to generation to come.

Federal Government-Proof All of Indian Country, USA

Federal Government-Proof All of Indian Country, USA
Terrance H. Booth, Sr.  Neesh Wil Gum (Keeper if the Gun Powder) Tsimshian

As we now see the Office of the President and the Republican Congress are for the rich and feed their rich friends to become richer and feed their greediness. In 2016 the Republican Congress stole tribal sacred lands from the San Carlos Apache Tribe of Arizona.  The Congress of 2017 is targeting a Utah Tribe to steal more tribal land.
The President showed us where he stands with no regard for trust responsibility and yet Federal Written Tribal law that obligates the Federal Government to outright protect all the Tribes of America.  Native American policies can be breached under this current presidential administration; please note, that no federal agency spoke up to oppose 2016 Congress stealing Tribal Sacred Lands from the San Carlos Apache Tribe of Arizona.  Yet the Department of Interior is supposed to be the main protector of all Indian Lands. 

It is obvious that this current presidential will and is disregarding people related programs instead playing a dangerous game showing America military power and show signs of putting American into war. With such actions neglecting the people of this country this writer offers a critical recommendation and is for the protection of already existing documentations, executive orders, Congressional Legislation, and Indian Policies.

Foremost, is tribal trust responsibility to directly ensure that any tribal lands are ever taken away from any of the Tribes of Indian Country. How do we do this Gaming Tribes give much of their earned revenues to non-profits of their neighbors. It is time to divert some of our revenues to legally put into protecting: Trust Responsibility, Tribal Rights, Tribal Sovereignty.  We as tribal people already seen Republican Congress Breach Trust Responsibility and steal our tribal sacred lands and still plan to steal more lands.  Tribes need to strengthen Trust Responsibility so no Native Lands disappear from us ever again.  

Specific Tribal Agenda to unite nation-wide and arrange meetings with US Senate Committee on Indian Affairs to have very stern reminders of Trust Responsibility, Tribal Rights and Tribal Sovereignty.  Present written legal documents that targets Trust Responsibility, Tribal Rights, and Tribal Sovereignty. Confront Federal Government that our Treaties are to be honored and respected and upheld.

All of our Native American Non-Profits need to get on same page and bring together all of our Native American Lawyers and as advisers our own tribal lawyers to absolutely once and for all create shield of protection to government-proof Indian Polices, Executive Orders, attempted adverse Congressional Legislation to make it fully known we stand fully for the good of our people and for the future generations of our Native People.
