Why do Native Americans still fight over their territories
A few years ago, the American Southwest’s tribal nations were grappling with the legacy of the land-grant land-take-all policy that was supposed to end the nation’s racist colonial rule and free up more of the Southwest for the Native American people.
The land-transfer policy was meant to help them integrate into mainstream American society and to provide land for the settlers.
But for some Native American tribes, the policies were a way to keep their land under their control.
Many were not willing to give up their land to the federal government, and they were not happy with the idea of the federal governments taking it from them.
“We don’t want to give it up to anybody.
We don’t even want to talk about it.
We have our land,” said Darryl B. Wilson, a Navajo Nation member and former US congressman.
Wilson is a professor of law and public policy at Arizona State University, where he also directs the law school’s Center for Indian Law.
He said that some Native Americans did not want to leave their ancestral lands behind because of fears of federal government intrusion, and some even feared the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), which is the US agency that oversees land claims and other issues in the Southwest.
“We didn’t want it to be seen as something that was going to be taken away from us,” he said.
The BIA is also known for making some harsh decisions.
In 2014, for instance, the BIA found that the Navajo Nation, the Navajo Indian tribe, had illegally built roads on federally protected land that are not part of their traditional territory.
The agency also said that the community of Apache and Hopi Indians had improperly moved onto federally owned land in the western US without the proper permits and had violated the Navajo-Hopi treaty.
In the meantime, Wilson said, some tribes were trying to reclaim their land.
For example, the Hopi Nation was trying to claim land that had been under federal jurisdiction since 1874.
Wilson said that many tribes were unhappy with the way the BGA handled their land claims, which resulted in the Bia ruling.
The Navajo Nation said that in the 1970s, the federal agency was the main agency that managed land claims.
The tribal governments had been trying to get more land for years, and in 2007, a tribe called the Apache Nation petitioned the BAA for a review of the BDA’s policies, but the BCA rejected the request, saying the tribe’s land claim was invalid.
The tribe appealed that decision, and the BNA then began asking for federal review of its land claims in the courts.
The BIA then denied the tribe and the tribes appeal, citing jurisdictional differences.
The decision by the BBI was made in the mid-1980s, said James Buehler, a tribal attorney in New Mexico.
Buehlman said that tribal governments wanted the BSA to review the tribes claims before the BMA’s decision.
The tribes appealed, and it was finally upheld in 2006.
The tribe also appealed the BBA’s decision, which was upheld in 2011.
In 2016, the tribes appealed again to the BHA.
BIA ruled that the Bnais claim was valid.
“That’s why they appealed, to get it overturned,” Buell said.
But the Binais case is not the only case of land-taking that has arisen since the 1970’s.
In 2012, a court found that two tribes in California, the Tlaloc and Nahuatl, had improperly purchased land and that they had violated land-use laws.
The Tlalsoc tribe sued the federal BIA, saying it had to take over a federally-protected tract of land because it did not have the proper permit.
The Tlaloos lost the case, and were ordered to pay the US government $8.5 million.
In 2013, the tribe lost again when the Bureau of Indian Education ruled that it had violated a treaty that was between the tribes.
“The tribes are not interested in money, they’re interested in being recognized,” said Nahuatans attorney, Michael Hagan.
Hagan is an attorney with the Native Claims Litigation Project, which represents the tribes’ lawyers.
Hagan said that he has seen cases where tribes have lost the right to own land, but have been able to get compensation.
He also said tribes have been forced to sell their land for money, because the BNI has not been able do its job.
“These people have been told, ‘You’re not doing your job.
You’re not fulfilling your duties to the United States,’ ” he said, adding that the tribal governments are now in the process of suing the BGI for violating their treaty rights.
The problem with these cases is that it’s not clear who owns the land that was taken, Hagan said.
“They’re not getting a fair hearing,” he added.
Hagan said that for some tribes
