On Native reconciliation has a long way to go. Along the way the natives will need to take responsibility for there actions as well as their part in this world and their behaviors. Things like this do not fly well, and you can bet that this family has lost any willing for reconciliation. Native rights must matched with native responsibility.
If the natives are not going to behave in a responsible manner, we the people will not put up with the shit. The government can want peace and respect for the natives, but the government cannot dictate what, we the people actually think nor why.
