Bad Eagle: Indian Country needs its own bank

"Indian casino income should not be differentiated from treaty money. Casino money is still money that comes to Indians because we�re Indians. Casino money exists by virtue of historical Indian treaties. Why declassify casino money as something other than treaty money? Indian business income is no different from treaty income. Therefore casino money should be dispensed equitably to all Indians.

But not through the BIA. Though the BIA was designed to distribute goods and services to the different tribes according to their different needs, and to �manage� Indian land and money, the BIA has failed to do this wisely. Its record is dismal.

An Indian national bank can do better."
