Dakota Access Pipeline standoff: Does the U.S. do enough to honor and respect Native American religious and cultural sites?

  • The Indians treated us just as badly as we treated them.

    They burned our settlements, tortured, raped and otherwise harassed peaceful settlers. They stole children to become slaves and scalped farmers to be left for dead. They broke treaties and attacked our armies. We won the war. We were kind enough to relocate them rather than slaughter them as many would have you believe. The land they live on is government issued. They are taken care of by the government. If they wanted to have a right to their own place then they would start contributing to society and get a real job.

  • They Lost The War

    They should be happy they even have land reserved for their use. Might makes right and we are much more powerful than the Native American tribes. We have the power to eradicate their entire race and yet it's through our sheer good will that we do not. They should be grateful that we didn't just kill them all.

  • I believe so

    Donald trump will build a bis ass wall to keep the canadians out and then he will take town the mexican fence and build a even smaller fence that is even shorter the the current. Donald trump will build the pipe line and move the people on the land to a island in the middle of the pacific

  • No, the U.S. doesn't do quite enough.

    No, I feel like the United States people and government are trying to honor and respect Native American traditions and cultural sites, but I feel that there is a huge gap when it comes to understanding. Native Americans have long-held traditions that have been trampled on again and again. It's time for people to stop and really listen to each other for progress to be made.

  • Native Americans are the most discriminated against race in the history of the United States

    The largest genocide in the world's history was Native Americans. Although reservations were an attempt at honoring and respecting Native Americans, it is not equal to that of other races, therefore it is not enough. In the case of Dakota Access Pipeline, money influencing governmental decisions over valuing religious and cultural sites is deductively logical that they are not sufficiently honored.

  • US often disregards Native Americans

    The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe was shocked to learn that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers had approved a pipeline that would run within a half-mile of the reservation. The approval was made without any consultation with or consent by the Sioux Tribe. It is just another example of the US disregarding the rights of Native Americans.

  • No, they do not.

    The Native peoples and their lands should be protected the same way that the National Parks are. If the US really cared about the Dakota people, they would have protected these sacred grounds years ago. The US does not honor the Native peoples of this continent and continues to disrespect them.

  • No, the U.S. does not do enough to honor Native Americans.

    No, the U.S. does not do enough to honor Native Americans, and it is especially evident in the recent standoff at the Dakota Access Pipeline. Native Americans were here long before any colonizers, and the fact that they are rounded up and placed in reservations is a disgrace to the country.
