Native American Reaction to the Oregon Land Protest

Hosted by

So the major talking point for the Oregon protesters is about taking back the land from the federal government. The local Native American tribe there – the Burns-Paiute tribe – says the land belongs to them under an agreement they signed with federal officials more than a century ago. What’s more concerning is that the armed occupiers may have rifled through and tampered with traditional Native American artifacts stored in the refuge. The leader of the Burns-Paiute tribe is also concerned for her tribe members’ safety after some said they were harassed by protest supporters.
