AFP via Yahoo: UN expert calls for US return of native lands

The UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples has called on the United States to mitigate the "sense of loss" among the Native American community by restoring some tribal lands.

James Anaya, made the comments after a 12-day tour of the United States, during which he met with tribal leaders in the capital as well as in the states of Arizona, Alaska, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota and Washington.

"The sense of loss, alienation and indignity is pervasive throughout Indian country," Anaya said in a statement released Friday.

"It is evident that there have still not been adequate measures of reconciliation to overcome the persistent legacies of the history of oppression, and that there is still much healing that needs to be done."

1. The Black Hills will never be returned to the Lakota

Even the state owned land. It will never happen. The Lakota should be paid a FAIR price in TODAYs value. Of course this will never happen either.
