They are citizens. Since the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924. How did you think they have the right to vote if they aren't citizens?

You missed, "just like the rest of us".

What are they teaching young people today?

 

 

They need to get back to the basics.


Who talked about some "white club"?

Indigenous people  have cultural heritage, same as Europeans, Jews, Koreans, or Japanese peoples.

 

You saying they should be like you would make as much sense as them saying you should be like them.


Regardless of heritage, I am an individual American citizen, just like you. Regardless of heritage you are an individual American citizen, just like me.

 

What is wrong with indigenous people being individual citizens just like you and I?


Don't they already have dual citizenship and as a result are considered American citizens?


But they are treated differently - reservations, casinos, etc. Maybe they'd be better off as just American citizens like you and I.
