The bottom line here is the White man has the expertise of the laws he created along with vast amounts of resources to make this lawsuit nullified for the most part and at best offer "trinkets" in lieu of a realistic settlement.
Which lawsuit are you talking about? The Indians are well financed through their tax free sales and non payment of property taxes and have hired very high priced and excellent legal advice. That is why some of these settlements have been in the court system for decades.
I haven't kept up with the past court settlements but if memory serves me correctly, the Native American refused past offers ,am I correct? Why did they refuse?
