I was born in new Zealand but my grandfather was from American his grandmother was the Queen of the Cherokee. I have heard storys of the bull shit the native American indians had to go through. in new Zealand have to put up with the government lies that the maoris are native to nz. Well they are not they came from Asia they are Asian people but they keep bleeding nz for what they can. if they want there land back and payouts from the tax payers go back to Asia. I'm so glad I don't live there anymore.

4:37 this made me cry. I feel for him. I wish the government would do something to help these reservations since they put them on them.

Looks Twice lives up to the wisdom of his name. Very smart for a young boy. Especially on a reservation that suffers from addiction. I had an old friend who came from a reservation in Arizona who told me how hard it is for these kids with what’s happening around them

I am a Lakota Sioux who was scooped and adopted by white people. They tried to force us to assimilate. They tried but failed. I hope this young man keeps working hard and does become the first Indigenous president. I also wish he and his family could all come north to live with me!

They are the real Americans, white people took their homes and committed genocide on the Native Americans, its shameful, its shameful that we dont do more for them. Our president doesnt want people coming in and "stealing" our stuff even though that's exactly what we did long ago, we need to do more for the Native Americans, and I hope that boy does become president, I really do

They are the Mongloid Asian natives they were unclean not the original or real natives they have white in them The real natives were swarthy look that up. American history is a made up lie smh. Go to the wounded Knee massacre there are genuine pictures of the real natives. These are a mix of white, mongoloid people not real native Americans they were swarthy meaning black described in every book.

noone forces them to stay on the rez they are taught to stay there so the counsil can get more money. instead of becoming part of the country they do the isolation and then play a victim.

The Native Americans are the only true Americans !! The white man is still speaking with forked tongue , when he speaks of removing illegal immigrants . It seems funny that the white immigrant now feels threatened by the brown immigrant .
Paula Mahaffey (7 days ago)
Why are they living in such poor conditions ?? This breaks my heart. American freeloaders live better than they do !!!!! Time for a change , a change past due.

I'm really curious what anybody from a tribal background or anybody who's lived on a reservation would have to say about this story or what might help to make things better. I'd love to hear.

This is the way we treat the REAL TRUE AMERICANS. We should get down on our knees and beg for forgiveness. We treat the Black people better than we do the NATIVE AMERICANS. GOD FORGIVE US, I don't know if they will ever

I am German and live for two years on an Indian reservation while wotking for their clinic. It was an amazingly interesting and stimulating time. I loved everything about it and made very good friends there. I often think I should write a book about. Indians do have problems but they own them and try to learn to do better. Their strong feelings of togetherness and belonging have been damaged and destroyed by generetions forceful separtions of children from their parents. It is socially and psychologically hard to recover from that becuse there are few peope to learn from what is normal. I have the highest respect for them and hope they can find back to their proud identity soon.

Why do the right owners of The USA have 2 live in RESERVATIONS in their own land...hmmmm...i am just asking.. " Dog Spirit " P-M Denmark.
LordSear1982 (9 days ago)
Because all white people are assholes and Native Americans look to those white assholes in hopes that the very same government that put them in reservations will take care of them and all their problems. You wont ever find that shit in Latin America with the indigenous.  North America is the worlds garbage can

I personally love Native American culture. I've always admired the Lakota, Sioux and Navajo tribes especially. I find it very sad that the Native American people have been pushed to the slums of poverty. Especially since they were once such a proud and independent people. To see where they have ended up destroys my heart.
Sharon McComas (14 days ago)
A Native American President just might help this country out. For them to be here before any of us came here should not be cold or wet is a shame. Go Looks Twice we need you. So many come here demanding things. This is a shame. GOD BLESS THEM
Tahoe Tom (14 days ago)
Hope he makes something of himself I really do. I don’t know about anyone else but it killed me to see how they are living. If I was closer I would honestly fix that trailer for them free of cost. It’s not right he lives like that. I’m not putting anyone down but man I feel so bad for this kid.

i wish him all the best and pray he gets where he dreams to be ...but at the same time, these national media seems to get off on the negative plights of indigenous people more than also showing those that have made a success out of life too. Not just indigenous people in the USA but world wide. this gives off a sense that every native american lives in conditions like this and drop outs and alcoholics?? Really??
