  • A chance to stop the dirtiest oil...

    Dear Editor,

    Winona LaDuke and Nellis Kennnedy laid down the gauntlet, writing “A chance to stop the dirtiest oil” (Star Tribune May 25), that "A project that would not pass a federal environmental impact statement in Minnesota should not be allowed to sell to our market – or we have simply exported our environmental destruction!” Wouldn’t that qualify under the “cap and trade” bill now up for debate in Congress? Whose side is government on?

    As you reported in News From Indian Country May 4, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said that in addition to the $500 million in federal stimulus money going to American Indian tribes for schools, housing, infrastructure improvements, loans and job programs on reservations, the Interior Department plans to invest at least another $2.5 billion in Indian Country during the Obama administration. That's a lot of money to invest!

    American Indian programs being cut
    by Cherie
    Here we go again. I don't understand why our programs are being cut for the ones who need them. Here we go with the take away from the poor and give to the rich. It seems to me something is pretty darn wrong here.
