ollaimh BS: Native North Americans protest (64* d) RE: BS: Native North Americans protest 11 Jan 13


for those who don't understand native land claim laws, and property law in general i will elucidate.

in canada and the united states if you buy some land you can pass it on by inheritance to your heirs. if the you who owns the land is a trust repressnting many people, then you can pass it on by inheritance to your heirs. if you are a native group that owned a poiece of land in trust you for the group(tribe), you can do the same. you have to demonstrate by credible evicdence that you have a line of descendants who owned the land in question back before anyother claimant. thats it. you don't have to prove you were first. no ,one white or native has to prove that to inherit land. if your too dumb to get that then you argue that a set of bones of unknown origion in oregon makes the calim untenable. if kennebeck man or anyone else cvan show his descendants were in possession of the land untill someone esle claimed ot then they have a claim. not because they were there forst, just because they were there before the other claimannt. its really common senxse. of course this is the kind of issue that brings out peoples bigotry to overrule common sense. so they claim that natives likked the mega fauna(Q's particular racism) to rebutt native rights claims. or they calim that a skeleton of unknown ancestry rebutts the claim.


the thing that rebuts the calim is a prior calim and an unbroken descent from that claim.

furthermore. people from other cultures get to tell you what they want to be called. when you are told that a gael wants to be called a gael or that a aborigional pseron wants to be called a native, then you shut the f up and say thank you for telling. unless you are a racist. then you copme up with every bigoted arguement you can think of.

finaslly people from other cultures have different laws, traditions naming conventions and even speak english differently from the mainstream. if this bothers you you need to go get some ethnic and race sensitivity training and probably some anger management. you take these clear expressions of hate to your grave and beyond--try to "not be evil" as google says. you and everyone esle ultimately benifits from not being evil.
