Proposal #163

AUTHOR: Devanshi Patel, California
TITLE: To Eliminate All Native American Reservations
MAJOR AREAS TO BE AFFECTED: Native American populations, Tribal governments, Department of Interior Bureau of Indian Affairs
SUMMARY: “Although Native Americans regard their reservation lands as a key to the survival of Native American culture, most reservations are still underdeveloped in terms of infrastructure and economic ability, and their inhabitants among the poorest of the nations poor. A Native American who wants a middle class job will likely have to leave the reservation.”
