The war against the Native Americans will never be over.

Here at Casa Vidiot, we were very relieved that New Orleans was spared by Gustav. However, the folks in Houma weren't so lucky. And the Native Americans in Houma? Even more unlucky.

The video talks about how white folks, just 20 miles away are getting FEMA help, but not the Native Americans. The reason? The oil companies, 'natch.

Additionally, this is a news report from Al Jazeera. You'll not be seeing this on CNNMSNBFOXABCCBS.

Yep, it is same old same old. The Houma Natives are not federally recognized, so they have no status in the federal governments eyes and thus are not getting trailers. Oil has a priority, so they get all the benefits. Sad.
