The file has the largest number of American Indian and Alaska Native groups of any Census Bureau data product released on American FactFinder to date, and it adds a new layer of detail to the population and housing topics previously released from the census. Additionally, for the first time, the summary file includes detailed information on individual Central American, South American and Mexican American indigenous groups.

Indian Perspective:

CAMARIPO-L Archives Date: Wed, 11 Oct 2000 16:01:07 EDT

Subject: Indians in the Census (Was: [CAMARIPO] 1850 Census

Inclusion or not... of Indian residents in the U.S. Census illustrates once again how ambiguous the status of California Indians was during the time period from 1850 when CA became a state until 1924 when all Indians were made citizens (whether they wanted to be or not -- some tribes are struggling to regain recognition of their status as independent nations, which was taken from them in violation of international law).

The treaties which U.S. Commissioners made with various California Indian tribes around 1851 were not ratified by the U.S. Senate, and the un-ratified treaties were hidden away for over 50 years. The Indians agreeing to the treaties were never informed that they were not ratified and so gave up their lands as the result of a massive fraud.

I was wondering if Russel Means was involved as the head of the Lakota Nation.

What right does a foreign government have to count his peoples?

Free includes debt-free!
