    Jonas, a non-conformist, sounds like he didn’t particularly care for the new farmer in the district. Didn’t care too much for farming either, but I wonder if he knew the difference between American labor and the “European standards of industry?”

    And what could be the difference between European “force” and the “effect of force” our trusty government used in the good old US of A?

    An Indian Court? Any right to an appeal? How about a lawyer? That’s right. I forgot. The Constitution never applied to Indians, and counted the Blacks as what, three-fifths, of a human?

      Seems this ‘evaluation’ struck a few nerves, Contoveros. I am finding it very enlightening to learn how non-Indian folks react to these documents. In a way, commentary like yours is very heartening because it reveals how/why most of us would never endure nor condone such treatments of ourselves or others. Perhaps there’s some hope for our species yet….
      Thank you for taking the time to read and respond so candidly.

    Cows milked 0 chickens 0
    Seven people and no chickens or cows?

    What is an I.I M from rosebud?

    Citizen No- Can’t even comment on that.

    Albert was an Indian politician.

    This was in 1922 whatever happened to that family?

      Hey GB. Yeah, about those zero cows and chickens–something of an issue on the reservations where food is scarce–tough to keep people from consuming the animals provided to try to turn them into stockment/farmers/agricultural folks. As for the citizen issue–well, Indians were not ‘citizens’ of the US–unless deemed ‘competent’ –and that’s a whole other barrell of fun and games–as in deem them competent so that they can sell their land to some parties VERY interested in buying it…
      Indian Politician—such folks were generally not very popular with those trying to get them to WHITE asap. Embracing traditional Indian values/culture just wasn’t always too well received by the Agency Crews.
      I’ve not followed up on the Owl King family–but there may well still be relations on the reservation.
