Homeowner's Association calls itself "The Reservation"

Hello cousins,
Yes, it's been a long time since you've seen my face around here and I apologize for that. We have a pressing issue going on in the Dallas area and I knew I had to reach out to cyber Indian Country to get the word out.

Richardson, Texas is a suburb just outside of Dallas and is home to the housing subdivision Estates North which informally calls itself "The Reservation". Residents there took the name because of their streets named after various tribes. They now want to make it official and have proposed to used city tax dollars for street sign toppers and signage marking their entry ways. As usual, their response to local native outrage is two fold; they claim they are honoring our cultures and their whopping two residents of native descent are proud to call their affluent neighborhood a reservation. Please check out the links I provide below and let your voice be heard with the City of Richardson.

Thanks,

Homa
