Should the government give the United States back to the American Indians

  • We are the invaders of their territory

    We are greedy idiots and want to conquer and destroy things.
    You don't like people invading your space so why would you invade theirs?
    Yeh it was like 300 years ago but its unfair to just TAKE AWAY someones property and use it for your own.
    And plus natives have a right too remember that!!!!!!

  • "Let justice be done, though the heavens may fall!"- Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus-

    Because the foundations of the U.S.A. are slavery, genocide, exploitation and racism. And racism is the keyword, it has lasted from the first days of the colonies to present day. Your claim will never stand. Until new and strong foundations are build, only then the U.S.A will live up to it’s dream.

  • They had the land first

    You think you are fair. When the pilgrims came the Native Americans helped them survive. A few centuries later they killed thousands of innocent Native Americans and stole their land. Now tell me would you like it if someone took your land and killed your family. You are just greedy, selfish, no good people who break treaties.

  • We took their land and lied to them so we should give back their land

    You made treaties with native americans and we broke every single one and you killed thousands of innocent native americans with no reason. You had no right to steal from others and you're breaking the 5th commandment. If someone killed your family would you like that so why would you kill someone's else's family. You are greedy, no good, liers. And you said america is home of the free. Well locking people up in reservations doesn't sound free to me.

  • Not the entire United States, But part of it

    In 2007, Native American activist Russell Means established a "country" for Native Americans called the "Republic of Lakota". Lakota is about the size of Syria and it covers hundreds of miles of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, And Nebraska. Lakota is not recognized as its own country by any other country but I think the U. S government should recognize Lakota as a foreign Native American country that the U. S government has NO jurisdictions over.

  • Yes I am an aboriginal with no Country!

    All the reservation is a minimum-security prison this ain't a way the Native Americans or the Aboriginal people of this land are supposed to live on Tiny reservations to me known as a minimum security prison! I can't believe how the world just stood by and let this happen to us. If not going to give back our lands at least let us have our Aboriginal way of life back Hunting Fishing harvesting food and other things that we do with surviving off the land we shouldn't have to buy licenses or permits to do this we should just be able to go out and do this without being harassed by the government officials this is the way of life for us ,living off the land and stuff not needing a piece of paper saying that we can. At least let us have our way of living back without being harassed by u.s. officials.

  • The USA is a LIE, a FARCE, a DECEPTION!

    Self-evident: Native Americans OWN THE WHOLE OF NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA.

    E N D O F ! Anything else is FILTHY INVADERS' LIES!

    I am Roman, born and bred. My People conquered a vast empire, yet in the end we gave back all the Empire's lands, to end our hegemony.

    "Christians" had no right to invade. Christianity does NOT condone genocide, and so the "Christian Nation" called "The United States of America" DOES NOT... Indeed, CANNOT Exist, it is a contradiction inherent in the two terms.


    What it can NEVER be is a "Nation". Not until the Native Americans recognise the USA and give it permission to exist on THEIR lands!


  • Yes they should because Native Americans were the first people in this country

    When you say that the Native Americans should not get their land back you are a fucking racist because you know why because you are saying that if Indians do not like what the U.S. Government did to them you are saying that they don't belong here and that you were the first people here well you are incorrect so fuck your anti Native American crap and go back to fucking Europe because you white people ain't Native American you are a bunch of Europeans and go ahead and say that the Indians don't deserve their land back because you are all fucking racist you're just like the Nazis taking over the jews land and putting them in concentration camps and by the way your White American heritage is racist shit the real americans are the Chippewa and other tribes idiot so fuck your country and your fucking anti Indians laws so fuck America and god bless Europe because Europe is our ancestral homeland not America you bunch of Yankees and hicks and when you want the pipeline on the indian reservation you are destroying life and you don't fucking care so fuck all of you crackers so fuck your country and go to hell Nazi lovers say that and you will see what happens

  • Yes, we took their land from them... Is it right

    Okay yes it was 300 hundred years ago but we need to remember, we had a treaty with them. Its unfair and not right. If you made a promise to your sister maybe when you where 3 and she was 4 and you said when i'm 55 i will give you a hundred dollars. Now your 55 and shes 56 she says hey give me my money you promised. She says back well it was like 50 years ago. Even if its 50 years or 300 a deals a deal. Thank you.

  • They already have the reservations

    American Indians have the reservations what more do they need. We conquered them hundreds of years ago just let it go you will never regain America and remember we gave you reservations we could have just had a genocide and killed all of the American Indians so just be grateful.

  • Absolutely not. They don't deserve anything.

    We conquered them. Just because some liberal feels sorry for what happened more than 200 years ago doesn't mean we should give anything back. White europeans had much better technology and strategy and we beat them. We get their land. The better equipped and more advanced civilization wins. Also, they didn't do anything to build and expand America. Why should we give up what we worked so hard to build to a race that has proved that it can't accomplish anything or do anything other than build casinos and get drunk?

  • Screw that crap.

    We won it fair and square. It's ours, it's been ours. If you wanted to keep it so bad maybe you should have fought harder. The US was only doing what every other nation on the planet was doing. Expansionism and colonization was the norm in those times and holding the Americans alive today responsible for what Americans did decades ago is ridicules.

  • Why should they?

    There simply aren't enough Native Americans left to form a nation. Also, that would mean that 310 Million people had to leave their homes and move somewhere else. That would spark an instant revolution. So either way the Native Americans are not getting the land. Plus, you act as if the Native American groups were all one country. They hated each other, this would result awfully.

  • And the logic in this is where?

    The native Americans were "CONQUERED". That means any legal tendings are void.We are America. Native Americans are US citizens. You want to give America back to Americans. Well that's a great political motto but is quite frankly inapplicable as credible reason or logic. And say that by some grace of god people agree to let their government give their home to a very small minority. How is this minority going to keep america? Other countries would exploit the sudden weakness and take over. Plus where are you going to put the hundreds of millions of political refugees and the massive illegal population? Good luck with that. But the fact is the colonists conquered America. We are as much American as a "native American". But this contention gave me a good laugh :)

  • Concepts of Ownership

    Who was in America before the Native Americans? And before them? Why don't they have a right to America? Screw that, humans should just leave earth, because crocodiles were here before we were. The thing is, concepts of who actually owns what are subjective, and therefore 'should' has nothing to do with it.

  • This is a false premise.

    Christopher Columbus made a big mistake when he proclaimed that the natives "owned" this country. Exactly how do you get to "own" a whole country? They arrived from other areas, most likely Asia and settled in the new land, much like the European settlers. Over time, tribes went to war with each other, and the victors claimed ownership of the losers land. How is this different than the Europeans defeating the natives and claiming their land? Should the victorious tribes return their conquered land to the losers? The Europeans brought a humanitarian interest to the problem, enacted treaties and attempted to permit the natives to live a life style they were accustomed to. This was a huge mistake that the country continues to pay for. Had the Europeans forced assimilation, the natives would be infinitely better off today.

  • No They don't need anything back

    They had a chance to win the fight 250 years ago, they had there chance its gone, if they ever tried to retake America we would put them in there place again, stupid elephant jockeys have reservations there lucky we gave them that in the first place now all you whiny cunts out there grow a pair.

  • The defeated don't have the rights to the land anymore.

    This is a basic rule of war if a nation get defeated they don't own the land anymore. Poland was ounce part of Germany does that mean the poles need to give all of their land back to Germany. That and it was three hundred years ago its over we need to move on with the future this was what our ancestors did not us we aren't responsible for it,

  • No, definitely not.

    I do feel bad that white settlers introduced Native Americans to deadly diseases, kicked them off their land, and put them in crappy reservations, but just because my ancestors did that doesn't mean it's my responsibility to reimburse the Native Americans for what the settlers took away just because I'm white, too.
