Letter to the Editor: Robbing Native Americans Again | Letters to the Editor

I was outraged by Jaz McKay’s Community Voices article (“Tribal gambling is about money and power”, August 13) in The Californian. I had hoped that such blatant anti-Native American bias was a dying mindset from the shameful past. Clearly I was wrong. Recent history demonstrates that the stereotype of “greedy thieving bums” of Native Americans persists, as Mr. McKay said, and is used to justify stealing from Native Americans yet again.

Just look at the blatant lies used by Oklahoma and their Governor Stitt in the McGirt case in order to steal tribal sovereignty over criminal cases.
