There is no land or casino involved in this. Educate yourselves!

Well said. Aho! The ancestors are behind us, and the past will always be accounted for.

The county resources spent toward attempting to prevent federal recognition is shameful. It is not enough to be thrown out of court because you have no standing.

The issue of recognition is not one you can mess with. These are very important issues which require the acknowledgement…

Sure! Perhaps you can reference the United States performance history with respect to treaties --- "agreements IN WRITING"? Been there done that. Because the effort has nothing to do with a CASINO - your argument is absurd. Indians have Indian lawyers now! Lots of them!

Perhaps someone could recognize that there were people on this land before any Italians? Even the first lost one who brought treachery and disease with him. Any re-naming of anything needs to be rooted in the native Wappo people. After all, it is there blood in the soil that makes this va…

I'm hoping Supervisor Dillon paid for the trip as a personal -- and not a business expense.

The local governments have no standing in this matter. The Wappo are not your adversaries.

Blessings to Lucy White. She "gets" it.
