Sec. Zinke wants to put our public lands under corporate management, public-private-partnerships, through his Recreation Advisory Committee. I cannot see any local citizen involvement, those who live in tourism areas or near public recreational land, in this committee. None the less, I thought I would send this out so that if you do know someone who might qualify for a position on the committee, who would ensure our protection from outside interests, here is how to either nominate someone or apply to be on the committee.
“For Native Americans this (America) is our land. Every inch of it, every mountain, every stream, every water that is out there is ours. It’s Native American country… America is Indian Country, and so every non-Indian out there is a guest of Native Americans in this country' and that’s how they should act, so if you’re a guest in our country that’s how you should act.” (Navajo Nation President, Russell Begaye, Nov. 28, 2017, live on CNN)
