but it sucks because since I don't live on the rez or anything I can't get the dental help or the health care help (which I could really use!)
I dont live on the rez either, so i dont get those things either so I do understand how frustrating it is. I have gastroparesis and Im disabled and have medicare which let me tell you it sucks. I dont even get a dental plan because I dont have medicaid, guess if you dont fall within the income requirements you arent good enough for dental. Never got that why medicaid has dental and medicare which is something I do pay for monthly doesnt have dental.
Ughh being 28 and disabled sucks (sorry for the ranting its just been one of those days). I dont know how people who live on SSD survive on what they get, thankfully I have my fiance who pays most of the bills.
I get a per cap of 599 a year, it comes around Christmas time and it does help with some of the christmas shopping

Our tribe voted for an increase for our per cap and for it to be distributed

quarterly. I voted against it, not only thinking about the taxes we have to

pay on it, i was thinking about our elders and anyone who are living on

fixed incomes. They have to go with out their benefits for a month

because of the increase and the quarterly payments. It's a sad thing

when they look for other resources for that month

Not a LOT of money, but sure helps out.
my children are enrolled n. arapaho and im grateful for the percap they get, our tribe (oglala) is broke so we dont get squat.

Hmmm.... we get paid two times a year. I can't complain with the money I receive, but it usually goes to get caught up on bills. Every year there's talk of ending the distribution, but somehow it continues. I guess no one's really thinking of the future ahead. There'll be loss of jobs, education, and other services.

i am 30 yo, and i did not know what a percap was until 6 years ago... when i met some one from the caddo tribe.

never got one and probally never will.

those who do get one, should be greatful for what ever amt. you get. there are those of us who dont even gt one.

i have to go all the way back to pine ridge for any medical i need and that sucks, the only time this tribe will help me is when and if i am preggers...

I get percap, I get benefits, I know alot of natives don't, but I am grateful I can pay my sh*t everymonth. I know some natives that get a hell of alot of more zhoonyaa that I do too. Alot of people both native and non=native hate that I am able to do this but I guess all I can say is... that's the way the cookie crumbles. I can't help it if my tribe is able to take care of me and yours aint. I aint rubbing it in everyones face but if you are open to opinions, here's mine.
