I would fix the leak in the roof, but it's not when it's raining. And when it's not raining it doesn't need to be fixed. Is it warmer downtown than it is in the summer?

On a personal level fight to fight, it's will become even harder, because you've become a bigger threat to the problem. You are you, we all fight or become a victim. Follow your heart, you are a fighter. If you run, and are a good man, I will vote, bad is not better then worst.

It's a tragedy they have to live in these shitty houses when we give so much to illegals that aren't even supposed to be hear. Indians are the original land owners. If I had bill gates money I would build houses for these people.

We're not going to vote for an indian unless he or she can prove beyond any doubt that they will absolutely pursue and destroy the deep state. Quit bitching and start killing the deep state. If you'll recall correctly they are the ones who took your land and mine.

Im not registered to vote an honestly i dont believe in politics, but if this kid becomes the first native american to run for office then hes got my vote. It would be a true America with a native american president, it just makes perfect sense

READ THE REAL HISTORY. Never give worth to what the white people say. They say things, document in writing information that is false and wrong only for the sake of controlling everyone and making themselves look smart. They study every culture and rob them of their belief and culture then apply to their "knowledge" as if they discovered it. They walk bare foot, they believe in breathing the air, appreciate the sun, robbing us of our belief. And make us look as if we are stupid and dirty to practice this custom. Lakota, Apache, Black foot, all people are the real people. All white people are Aliens to this land.

I have seen a few reservations and they always tell the same, sad story! Alcohol, drug addiction, suicide, and crippling poverty! I would LOVE to be around when this young man runs for President. I would definitely vote for him!! He looks like a true warrior to me. Keep your head up and you eyes and mind clearly on the prize. Robert Looks Twice for President!

A lot of things bad happened to a lot of Indians my people as well as African-Americans the worst sting one of the worst things because there were so many is abdication to the white man's ways if they would have just stayed in their teepees and they won't have to worry about being warm and leaking ceilings and Floors that are breaking up because they already had the knowledge before the so-called missionaries white Europeans came and we know what happened after that!!!!!!!
OMG this video is 7 years old. This kid must be grown up by now! I really hope he did not drop school. I would like to help if I can as well!

Screw alcoholics, why’d the white people have to create them? Why can’t they just drink “WATER,” I know that in the back day water wasn’t clean, but they deserve drinking it.

Rebecca Rush (12 days ago)
I think america should pay more respirations to ALL the people they have done wrong to in order to create america such as, native american indians, african americans, and others. We should at least work to repair their infrastructure, work to help the people struggling with drug and alcohol problems get some help/recover, we should help their children because NO CHILD deserves abuse and neglect. We should have it in our hearts to help these people. I know that we can as a human race and it breaks my heart that we don't.

I weep for my Native Indian brothers for the depressive state the White man has put them in. These fierce warriors are the original inhabitants of America and it's true citizens. Yet the White man has systematically made them extinct and the colonies that are left are subjected to trailer parks, poverty, disease and depression. America's not so hidden secret is that it was made on the bloodshed and extinction of the great Indian nations that were spread out across North America. The White man has a lot to answer for and this is why America is cursed with flooding, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, blizzards, forest fires, the highest crime rates in the world and soon to be economic collapse. The curse of the Native Indians lives on!!!!!!

I feel just as bad for the lost tribes in the States. Looks worse than Canada.
BestKnOWnAgent (13 days ago)
Sometimes I think Canada needs a Native Prime Minister too.
James Longstreet (13 days ago)
Shame on us,that natives have to live like that.Shame on us what we did to them.Hope this fine young man gets out.
I wish these in depth reports would happen more frequently a to expose the difficulty of life these young men and women face. They are up against it. I thought Billy Mills " Running Strong For American Indian Youth" was doing a lot of work on the reservation at Pine Ridge. I use to donately every month for 5 years to their cause. i never made the trip there, but would love to go and help in some capacity!

Que injusto...ellos son los verdaderos americanos no deberian vivir asi tengo la esperanza que algun presidente los reivindique y les de los servicios que merecen.
I love being native american! 😍💕

At the end of the day all of the lovely comments in this are nothing more than lovely sentiments. We've ruined hundreds of thousands of lives and exterminated many peoples and cultures while building America. Yet we require foreigners to assimilate.This is not news. Still, we write a lovely comment to get "likes" and nothing changes but we feel good about ourselves because we had a great, life altering idea that everyone liked! We don't have to know where this particular reservation is to help make a change. We have them all over the states. Pick one. They're all the same. To answer your question, I'm just as big a jerk because I know of many reservations in my state and I've done nothing either. But I will investigate further. I will learn and I will ask the right people what I can do until I put my lovely thoughts into action because this really hurt my heart. It hurt because I was already aware of it but didn't think much of it because I'm comfortable in MY life.

It would be a great honor to have an American Native as President of our great lands. Maybe we will return to peace when this happens.

Gods people always are on the bottom cause we broke his commandments. Blacks, Native Americans & Mexicans of Indian descent. The heathen nation stole all our resources. But its our time forever salvation is ours.
