Do Native Americans Support Reparations for Blacks?

My recent exchange with an indian acquaintance about land reparations for blacks led to a response of 'us first.' This is understandable. But should blacks stop pushing for repayment for slavery until indians figure out how, when or if they are going to fight for their own legacy rights? The indian reservations represent a much larger land ownership share than blacks can point to. Blacks own mortgages. Indians have their owns nations within the United States.

AAEA is pushing for federal land and mineral rights transfers to African Americans as reparation for slavery. For more information, go to our Reparations Pages:
