    Shinnecock Tribe wants to kick out the richers from the East End...

    ...I think they'd still let us surf there. Interesting article. I'm sure they won't get anywhere, but at least they're trying.

    that would be great if they took back all the land stolen from them. I don't really feel for any nationality except Native Americans. They really were screwed. They should take the land by force but then they would be called 'terrorists'. It's crazy that most this country is really their land. We should respect them.

    Agreed liam, or at least the land which was promised to them in all the treaties that were broken.


    Kevin Costner wanted to buy land in the Black Hills(sacred to the Lakota) and turn it into a golf course, f'n kook.

    Ugh, that's a sickening read. Those people have little chance on winning that battle.

    Wow! What a hipocrite especially after making his Dances with Wolves movie.

    Costner actually owns the land and is selling or sold it. 1,000 acres

    It is of course a shame what has happened to the Shinnecocks, as can be said of all Native American tribes.

    I've spent a lot of time out there (working in rich peoples homes), and I can tell you that even when the cigarette business was better, they still seemed economically challenged, and that is an understatement...

    It's ridiculous that they are not allowed to build a casino. F*ck the Nimby's and all the other 'leave me and my money alone' people on the East End, most of them aren't even from NY state anyway. I hope a tidal wave sweeps em all away.

    Yeah. He bought it a while ago and was planning to develop a casino and golf course. But when the plans fell apart he put it up for sale.

    Did you ever go to the reservation while out there to buy smokes? If so did you notice that they were all mostly black and not Indian?
    I used to go there when I worked out there. Some shady characters on the reservation.
