History shows that joblessness among Native Americans can be lowered
I must preface this column with the fact that nothing has substantially changed in Indian Country with the Obama presidency. Longtime, distinguished Indian activist, John Trudell, recently expressed the sentiments of many Natives when in the press he said, “When you look at the sovereignty, the economics, the cultural well-being of the Native people [Obama] hasn’t done one thing. He’s just like every other U.S. president. I think a lot of Native people are just glad to be acknowledged. You look at the time Obama has been in office, and the teen suicide rates are [still] out of control, the poverty is out of control.”
