David Bland Legislation Legacy ET/125 6/14/2011 Tenisha Spencer Native Americans have been having issues with the American Government for decades and decades and still more to come. The article that I found most interesting to myself was a issue that had to be resolved between the Government and Native-American Farmers and also African-American Farmers. Native-Americans have been in the farming industrie for many years before our time and they did it to survive. President Barack Obama signed a $760 million dollar settlement for mismanagement and discrimination that was given out by the federal Government. The case which is named Keepseagle v. Vilsack. Is a class-action lawsuit that has the USDA improving farm-loan services also the USDA needs to forget over 80 million dollars in outstanding farm loans and also pay over 680 million in damages
